ARE YOU A FOODIE?
A foodie is a food lover, someone who is very interested in cooking and eating different kinds of food. Are you a foodie? Maybe you can recmmend a nice place to eat out in Warsaw? Check out the articles and videos that will enrich your vocabulary and will make your mouth water.
1. FOOD-RELATED WORD BANK
Why don’t you begin with a revision of the most popular words connected to food and eating. It might a good start to learn them and later read articles and understand them better. Read the article here: https://www.thoughtco.com/words-used-to-describe-food-4018894
2. SOUL FOOD
Soul food is a type of food that was traditionally eaten by black people in the southern US. Now we call soul food any type of that is simple yet hearty (large making you feel full) and delicious. Every ethnic group has what it calls “soul food” – soothing, comfort food that brings back warm memories of family dinners, however, today, the term “soul food” simply means African-American cuisine.

Talking about comfort food (food that makes you feel good) I recommend reading an article about “Georgia’s addictive cousin to pizza” . Below some words you can learn to read the article faster and understand more. Have you ever tried this type of dish? Let me know in the comments.
3. VEGAN FOOD TOUR IN L.A. WITH AVANTGARDE VEGAN
Fancy restaurants with plant-based dishes are all you can expect here. I wish we had such great quick bite places like they have in L.A. It all look just mouth-watering! The names of ingredients might be much easier to understand for vegans or vegetarians, like seitan, falafel, hummus, tempeh. The last but not least are the types of pastas mentioned. Make sure you know their pronunciation 😉 Like Tagliatelle (taljiateli) or gnocchi (njoki).
Extra for the meat lovers.
But, if you’re not on a restricted diet, then I guess East End London food tour might be more appealing. There will be some local food restaurants with beer, cheese, bagels, fish and chips and more.
