Sau khi đã trang bị được kha khá một vốn từ vựng nhất định rồi. Hãy cùng DOL giải quyết hàng loạt câu hỏi liên quan đến chủ đề về food, đặc biệt là trong 2 phần speaking part 1 và part 3 nào

2.1 What is your favorite food?

Well, I would say since I have a sweet tooth, I am a huge fan of desserts. But if I had to choose one, it would be cheesecakes. I usually follow a recipe I learned from the Internet. It has quite a few ingredients, but the process is not complicated. On special occasions, I usually make cheesecakes to serve my family after dinner.

  • recipe: công thức nấu ăn

  • ingredients: thành phần

  • special occasions: dịp đặc biệt

2.2 Is there any food you dislike?

I’m not a picky person, so I don’t have any problems with food. However, raw fish such as salmon or tuna sashimi is not my cup of tea. I can’t stand anything stinky or fishy.  I would prefer them to be well-cooked in a hot pot or something like that. 

  • Picky: khó tính

  • Raw: đồ sống

  • My cup of tea: sở thích

  • Fishy: tanh

2.3 What are some traditional foods in your country?

Well, Vietnam has a very rich cultural diversity, which means that there are various types of traditional food. To name some, there are Chung cake, spicy beef noodle soup, or sticky rice. Actually, every region has its own local speciality, but I do believe that Pho is still the most popular one among other dishes. It’s very well-seasoned and can be served for any mealtime during the day.

  • Cultural diversity: sự đa dạng văn hoá

  • Local speciality đặc sản địa phương

  • Well-seasoned: được nêm đậm vị

  • Mealtime: giờ ăn

  • totally different: hoàn toàn khác nhau

  • normal thing: điều bình thường

  • result of growing up: kết quả của việc lớn lên

2.5 What is a common meal in your country?

Well. I’m an Asian so it’s rice for sure! We have it almost every single day, in every single meal. It's simply because rice is easy to grow in Vietnam; it provides lots of energy and it is cheap as well so everyone can afford it.

for sure: chắc chắn

have it: ăn món đó

provides lots of energy: cung cấp nhiều năng lượng

afford: có khả năng chi trả 

2.6 What do you think of fast food?

I think fast food is convenient, for sure, but it's extremely unhealthy. I mean, it's okay to have fast food like once or twice a week but having it everyday can seriously damage your health! One of my friends, Daisy, ate fast food for months straight and she's obese now.

  • Convenient: tiện

  • Unhealthy: không lành mạnh

  • damage your health: gây hại cho sức khỏe của bạn

  • obese: béo phì

2.7 Do you have a healthy diet?

  • Unhealthily (adv) một cách không lành mạnh

  • Fast food: thức ăn nhanh

  • Vegetables: rau củ

  • As diverse a diet as possible: chế độ ăn uống đa dạng nhất có thể

2.8 What's the difference between picnics and cooking at home?

Well, the most obvious difference is that cooking at home is more comfortable because you have all the ingredients and tools that you need! In contrast, it’s tough to cook in nature during picnics and you either have to be really well-prepared, or you have to learn to make do with what you have.

  • Comfortable: thoải mái

  • ingredients and tools: nguyên liệu và công cụ

  • In contrast: trái lại

  • Tough: khó khăn

  • well-prepared: được chuẩn bị kỹ

2.9 Who does the cooking in your family? Why?

Definitely my mom. She is in charge of all the cooking in my family since she is passionate about cooking. In fact, she always makes sure that we are served different types of dishes every meal, which is awesome. Nevertheless, my dad will do the grilling part of barbecue food if my family has a party. 

  • in charge of: chịu trách nhiệm về

  • passionate about: đam mê điều gì

  • barbecue food: đồ ăn nướng

2.10 Did you learn how to cook when you were younger?

  • back up: hỗ trợ

  • side jobs: công việc phụ ngoài lề

  • recipe: công thức nấu ăn

  • cooking methods: phương pháp nấu ăn

  • decorate: trang trí

2.11 Do you think Vietnamese people's diet is healthy?

Yes, obviously. Vietnamese people always try to ensure their meals have enough necessary nutrients. That’s the reason it is almost a must to have vegetables and soup in every meal, and that’s quite healthy. We also use some natural spices and herbs, which are believed to have some medical benefits, to season the food.

  • Nutrient: chất dinh dưỡng

  • Spice: gia vị

  • Herbal: thảo mộc

  • Medical benefit: lợi ích về y học

  • Season: nêm nếm

  • Foodie: người thích đồ ăn

  • Experience: trải nghiệm

  • Special features: đặc điểm đặc biệt

  • Underlying meaning: ý nghĩa thực sự đằng sau

2.13 Have you ever tried foreign food?

Of course yes. I have a chance to taste lots of food, but my favorite one is Thai food. Even though it is spicy, most of the dishes are incredibly delicious, especially Tom Yum soup. It’s such a perfect combination of sour and sweet taste.

  • Spicy: cay

  • Delicious: ngon

  • Perfect combination: sự kết hợp hoàn hảo

  • Sour: chua

2.14 What kinds of new foods have you tried recently?

Recently, I’ve been on a diet. Therefore, I usually look for healthy diets such as vegetables or low-calorie food. I was introduced to some vegetarian diets. Initially, I found it hard to maintain this habit. Then, after a while, I am motivated by the fact that I’ve lost 3 kilometers by eating this on a regular basis.

  • On a diet: theo chế độ ăn, giảm cân

  • Low-calorie food: thực phẩm ít calo

  • Vegetarian diet: chế độ ăn chay

  • Maintain this habit: duy trì thói quen này

2.15 What kinds of things do you eat for dinner in your country?

The food that we eat for dinner can be quite diverse. However, for home-cooked meals, we mainly have rice. We have it with different Vietnamese dishes, among which I believe pork and fried fish are the most popular ones.

  • Diverse: đa dạng

  • Home-cooked meals: món ăn được làm tại nhà

  • Most popular: phổ biến nhất

2.16 Do you like food from other countries near Vietnam?

Certainly, I do. I have a special love for Chinese cuisine. Just like their culture, Chinese people offer a wide range of food. I’m interested in this food partly because its taste is pretty similar to Vietnamese food. We have some commons in the way we process and season the food. 

  • Cuisine: ẩm thực

  • Have some commons in: có nhiều điểm giống nhau trong việc gì

  • Process and season: chế biến và nêm nếm

2.17 Do you like to cook?

I consider myself an excellent cook. But unfortunately, I’m not into cooking. This is because I have a pretty hectic schedule, which means that I don’t have enough time to prepare a high-quality meal. So, most of the time, I just choose to eat out and have takeaway food at home. Only on important events such as birthdays, I will roll my sleeves up and get hands-on with something.

  • Hectic schedule: thời gian biểu bận rộn

  • Prepare a high-quality meal: chuẩn bị một bữa ăn chất lượng

  • Eat out: ăn ở ngoài

  • Takeaway food: đồ ăn mang đi

  • Roll my sleeves up and get hands-on with something: bắt tay vào làm một việc gì đó

2.18 Do you think cooking is a pleasure or a chore for people who have busy lives?

It depends. For people who are extremely busy. Cooking could be a nightmare as it involves too much preparation and cleaning. In contrast, people who have plenty of time will think of cooking as a hobby. For them, cooking for their beloved ones is the definition of happiness.

  • Nightmare: cơn ác mộng

  • Preparation: sự chuẩn bị

  • Hobby: sở thích

  • Beloved ones: những người yêu thương

2.19 What time do you usually eat dinner?

Because my working time is quite flexible, I don’t have a certain time for dinner. I’m only able to say I often have it after 7 p.m. That is when I mostly finish my job and can have a little time to grab a bite to eat to fill my empty stomach.

  • Flexible: linh động

  • Grab a bite to eat: ăn vội

  • Empty stomach: bao tử rỗng

2.20 Will you change your diet habits?

To be honest I think I should. As I said, I regularly have fast food for lunch and dinner, which is not good for my state of health. I consider spending more time preparing home-cooked dishes. They can not only ensure healthy nutrition but also help to keep my body in shape.

  • Fast food: đồ ăn nhanh

  • State of health: thể trạng

  • Home-cooked: nấu ăn tại nhà

  • Keep my body in shape: giữ thân hình cân đối

2.21 What do you enjoy the most about a meal?

It would definitely be desserts. I have a sweet tooth, and I always expect a cup of ice cream at the end of the meal. Needless to mention that most desserts are beautifully decorated, which makes them much more mouth-watering

  • Dessert: món tráng miệng

  • Have a sweet tooth: hảo ngọt

  • Beautifully decorated: được trang trí đẹp

  • Mouth-watering: ngon và hấp dẫn

2.22 What foods from your country do most foreign people enjoy?

I believe foreigners find Pho very fascinating. That’s a thing that still imprints in their mind after they pay a visit to Vietnam. I guess it is because Pho is well-seasoned with various kinds of spices. Also, the taste is neutral and friendly to most people.

  • Imprint in one’s mind: khắc sâu vào trong trí nhớ

  • Well-seasoned: nêm nếm đậm vị

  • Spice: gia vị

  • Neutral: trung tính

2.23 What kinds of meals do you like?

Personally, I prefer meals which contain enough essential nutrients. It should include meat, vegetables, and soup. This is why homemade meals are always the best. I can ensure my body is healthy as well as have quality time with my family.

  • Essential nutrient: chất dinh dưỡng thiết yếu

  • Homemade meal: các món ăn nhà làm

  • Quality time: thời gian chất lượng

2.24 Do you often eat dinner with your family or friend?

I try my best to have dinner with my family as much as possible. It’s always nice and fun to be surrounded by your beloved ones at dinner. However, I eat out with my friends sometimes. It is great to try on different kinds of food, I believe there are foods in restaurants that we have never seen at home.

  • Surrounded by: được vây quanh bởi

  • Eat out: ăn ở ngoài 

  • Try on: thử

2.25 Are there any fruits or vegetables you don’t like?

Yes, there’re a few. Durian is the first thing that pops up in my mind. It has such a strong smell that makes me dizzy even just being nearby, let alone eating it. Although it is seen as a king of fruit, it’s always on my black list.

  • Pops up: xuất hiện

  • Dizzy: choáng váng

  • Let alone eating it: huống hồ là ăn nó

2.26 Do you like chocolate as a child?

Oh yes for sure. I love the taste of bittersweet. Also, the feeling when a bar of chocolate melts in our mouth is just amazing. Besides, chocolate is usually served with nuts, which makes it even better. Until now, chocolate is an indispensable part of my house on Christmas and New year.

  • Bittersweet: vừa ngọt vừa đắng

  • Melt: tan chảy

  • Nuts: các loại hạt

  • Indispensable: không thể thiếu được

2.27 Do you think most people like chocolate? Why?

I don’t think so. Some people can’t stand the sweet taste. Moreover, chocolate is not recommended for people who have health problems such as diabetes or obesity. Not to mention that there may be people who are allergic to some ingredients contained in chocolate.

  • Health problems: các vấn đề sức khỏe

  • Diabetes: bệnh tiểu đường

  • Obesity: bệnh béo phì

  • Be allergic to: dị ứng với

2.28 What kinds of food are most popular in your country?

In Vietnam, we mainly have rice for mealtime. It is a complement to other main courses, namely pork, chicken or beef. And since food is often considered a big matter in most families, we usually prepare a full-course meal with some sort of side dishes and soups as well.

  • Complement: phần bổ sung

  • main course: món chính

  • Full-course meal: bữa ăn đầy đủ

  • Side dishes: món phụ

2.29 What kinds of foreign food are popular in your country?

From my observation, I think it’s definitely Japanese cuisine. There are so many Japanese restaurants in HCM city, selling varieties of dishes too, not just sushi. This is just my guess, but I think the reason for this is that, even though we use different spices and cooking methods, the philosophy behind Vietnamese cuisine and Japanese food is very much similar: both aims for an elemental balance and harmony between the ingredients, and both really utilize the healing properties of herbs and vegetables into cooking. Not to mention that most young people are exposed to Japanese culture from a very young age, through anime and mangas, so I think that also attributes to why Vietnamese people enjoy Japanese food so much.

  • Observation: sự quan sát

  • Spices: gia vị

  • Cooking methods: phương pháp nấu ăn

  • Philosophy: triết lý

  • Elemental balance and harmony: sự cân bằng và hài hoà giữa các nguyên tốt

  • Healing properties: đặc tính chữa lành

  • Herbs: thảo mộc

2.30 What are the differences between the way young and old people think about new food?

I think one major difference is in how eager we are to try them. For instance, the first week when Starbucks first opened in HCM city, thousands of people lined up to try it, and there were mostly young people and not many old people there. I think this is because in the age of social media, young people always seem to have this urge to be the first one among their friends to try new things and post it on Facebook or Instagram and impress their following. Meanwhile, with older people, they’d be less bothered by it, therefore they would mostly wait for the hype to die down and try later or even not try it at all.

  • Eager: háo hức

  • Lined up: xếp hàng

  • Impress: gây ấn tượng

  • Bothered: phiền lòng

  • Hype: cơn sốt

  • Die down: lặng đi dần
