Favourite Foods and Drink
“Let’s read about favorite foods of people around the world,” said Mrs. Chan.
Favorite Foods Around the World
People from different countries have their own favorite foods. These foods may be very different, but they are all delicious. This is because, when people cook the same type of food every day, they often become experts at doing it .
Rice is an important part of the Asian diet ,but people from different countries have come up with many ways of cooking rice .For example, China is famous for its fried rice and porridge while Japan is well known for sushi.
People living in western countries often eat bread. Americans love hot dogs while the French prefer croissant. They may both be bread, but they taste very different.
In some countries, beef dishes are very popular. In New Zealand, roast beef with vegetables is an all-time favorite. Australians also love all sorts of beef dishes like steak pies.
Nowadays , you can find different foods from all over the world in most big cities. So, you need not travel very far to try most of it! In fact, you could even try to cook it at home!

Polly’s friend, Jane talked about the local delicacies in her country. Polly’s did not know what `delicacy’ meant, so she decided to check a dictionary to find out.
