Sample Answer Band 8
Life is all about experimenting (try out new ideas or methods), and trying something for the first time is always exciting and fun. Being a food connoisseur (a person who knows a lot about and enjoys one of the drink, food, etc) , I love experimenting with new cuisines of various cultures and nations. However, after my graduation, I recently visited my hometown in India, where I exercised my taste buds by eating a flavoursome (having a pleasant distinct flavour, tasty) delicacy (something especially rare or expensive that is good to eat). On a rainy weekend, I went to a street food joint with my friends. The first thing they served as a starter (a small quantity of food that is served as the first course of a meal ) was the Samosa (veggie dumpling). It was not the usually deep-fried potato samosa but was made with ground lamb this time. Initially, I wasn’t sure about trying it at first. But at my friends’ insistence ( the act or an instance of insisting), I tasted a bit of it, and it was palatable (delicious). The spices and flavors were perfectly balanced and the crispness of the dough was up to the point. Overall, it was finely cooked. The puffy samosa treat was accompanied (to go with someone or to be provided or exist at the same time as something) by sweet and tangy cilantro sauce (also known as chutney), which was delectable (delicious). I really enjoyed watching how these fried, or baked pastries are filled with well-spiced & grounded lamb, along with onions, wrapped up into a cone, triangle or dome shape and then deep-fried in the cooking oil. I must say that the lamb samosa is a simplified version of the traditional lamb curry. I loved every bit of it. Moreover, this crispy and crunchy starter meal is not only filling but equally delicious. However, I was extremely interested in eating it again, so I visited the food joint ( informal way to refer to a business, usually one that sells food or drink) the next day too.
IELTS Speaking Part 3 (Discussion)
Do you like to try new food?
Of course, who doesn’t like to experiment with new food cuisines? Well, I’m a foodie, and I love trying out new flavours. One way to satisfy your hunger curiosity is to try something new. So, I give it a shot by trying new street foods, and I think it’s one of the greatest pleasures of life to try new food items.
What kinds of foreign foods are popular in your country?
Well, there are several kinds of foreign foods that are extremely popular amongst the youth in my country, which includes Japanese Sushi, Chinese Noodles, Thai curry, Italian Pasta, Mexican & Arabian Shawarma, Korean BBQ, Turkish Kunafa, and French foods. In contrast, the Middle Eastern Baklava, American Hot Dogs, and North-African Shakshouka are not very popular.
Do you like to cook at home?
Yes, whenever I’m home during weekends, I love to cook and whip up (prepare something to eat very quickly) a meal for my family. Due to my work commitments (the state or quality of being dedicated to a cause, activity, etc), I don’t get a chance to cook, but I cook a meal at least once a week. I’m not a fancy cook, but not a bad cook either. Moreover, a freshly cooked meal tastes much better than the frozen foods, and also I prefer eating healthier foods than fast foods.
Is it expensive to eat out in your country?
Not really, though! There are plenty of expensive and economical (not using a lot of fuel, money, etc) restaurants in my country. But it depends on where an individual prefers to eat. For example, if he wants to eat in a local street food joint (very common and informal way to refer to a business, usually one that sells food or drink), it wouldn’t cost him a lot of money, but if the same individual visits an expensive restaurant, it’d cost him a fortune. However, the tastes in each restaurant may vary.
What’s the difference between Indian food and western food?
Indian food is entirely different from the rest of the world not only in taste but also in terms of the cooking methods, styles, flavours, and preparation. Indian food includes flavoursome spices, which are freshly and authentically prepared in homes. Further, Indian food in itself has more diversity; that is, the North Indian cuisine is poles apart (have nothing in common) from the South Indian cuisines.
