What do you usually have for breakfast, lunch, dinner?
I always have a substantial breakfast: bread with butter, sausages, or ham and eggs and I drink tea, or coffee. I think that breakfast is the most important meal because people need energy in the morning. I have lunch at home my mother cooks every day. We usually take a soup /fruit soup, vegetable soup,/ the second course is some meat /chicken, fish, pork chop/ with garnish /chip, rice, vegetable, mashed potatoes./
The third course is consisted of fruit, or cake. My family has dinner together. We usually have a light dinner, fruit soup, or chicken with rice.
If you don't have breakfast
I never have breakfast in the morning. I am always in a hurry that is why I gulp down a cup of tea/coffee and I go to school. I have lunch in the canteen between 12 and 13 o' clock. I'm not really keen on this food because the dishes are not well-done. There is too much vegetable sauce and we are rarely given any fruits or cakes.
Substantial - bőséges
Course - fogás
What is the Hungarian cuisine famous for?
The Hungarian cuisine has a good reputation abroad. The Goulash, the stuffed cabbage, the pancakes, the paprika chicken with sour cream, the noodles with cabbage, roasted paprika potatoes, with cottage cheese are world-famous dishes. The Hungarian specialities are prepared with paprika, which gives a pleasant taste to the food. Hungarian people are fond of different soups: the typical Hungarian meal usually contains soup. We take great pride in fish dishes, the Hungarian fish soup is a substantial meal itself.
Stuffed cabbage- töltött káposzta
Pancake - palacsinta
Taste- - íz
World-famous - világhírű
Do you like the instant foods, cube stocks, and freeze-dried foods?
I don't like the instant and the freeze-dried foods. I think it is better to buy fresh meat or vegetable than open a tin or use ready-cooked vegetable. The frozen foods always contain food additives and preservatives, which can cause health problems.
I like the instant foods because it takes too long to prepare a dish from fresh ingredients. The housewives living in the US prefer this kind of food, because they have no time to go shopping. In Hungary there is a trend towards frozen foods and the population began to know the importance of them.
Tin - konzerv
Preservatives - tartósítószerek
Additives - adalékok
Ingredients - hozzávalók
What is your favourite dish, and how do you make it?
My favourite dish is chips, because it is very easy to prepare. I peel the potatoes after I cut and wash them. I put oil in a frying pan and I cook them during 20 minutes. I eat it with a salad, for which I use: dash of salt, dash of vinegar, a small garlic, 2 tomatoes, 2 green pepper, cheese and 2 cups torn lettuce. At first I mix the ingredients and toss it with a ready dressing and put them into the fridge. If it is cool enough I sprinkle them with cheese.
Peel - meghámozni
Cut - összevágni
Fying pan - serpenyő
Mix - összekeverni
Sprinkle - megszórni
Do you often eat in a restaurant?
I don't often eat in a restaurant because Hungarian restaurants are expensive. If I go out with my friends we always go to a café. I have not enough money to invite my friends to a good restaurant that is why we always eat in a fast-food restaurant and go Dutch. Some of the Hungarian restaurants are not at high level: the foods always have fancy-names but they are not delicious, the prices are high, and the waiters are unfriendly
I often eat in a restaurant because it is a great form of entertainment. I always invite my friends and I give them a real treat. They wine and dine at my expenses and we have a nice time together. There are some good restaurants in Hungary where the foods are well-done, the waiter is nice and the guests are welcome.
Fancy name - fantázianév
Delicious - ízletes
Go Dutch - ki-ki alapon fizet
Do you like fast food?
I like fast food because it takes not too much time to wait for a dish. Nowadays people have to go to work, they are in hurry and need a quick meal. You can have a meal in 10 minutes, and you are not obliged to give a tip to the waiter. You always know what do you eat and don't buy a big in a pocket. That problem is that this kind of restaurant is crowded and noisy it is not easy to find a free table.
I never eat fast-food because it is expensive and not healthy. I prefer to eat at home because I can make a dish from fresh ingredients. I hate the crowded places and the noisy disturbs me. The menu of the fast-food restaurants is always the same, there is not too much vegetables in the foods and there is only a little choice of cakes.
Tip - borravaló
Pig in a pocket - zsákbamacska
