IELTS Speaking Part 1 Topic & Questions : Cooking/Food

IELTS Speaking Part 1 Food:

1. What kinds of food do you particularly like?

I’d have to say Asian cuisine is my favorite. I am a huge fan of the bold flavors and spices used in Korean and Vietnamese dishes. Something I often daydream about eating is X, which is a tip-smacking noodle soup dish served with a crab broth. It’s every bit as delicious as it sounds.

  • Bold flavor (phrase): strong flavor
  • Tip-smacking (adj): delicious
  • Broth (noun): soup consisting of meat or vegetable chunks

2. Is there any food you don’t like?

It’s true that there are a few things that kind of put me off. For example, I cannot stand Y, which is essentially a shrimp paste. A lot of people like it, though, but I think it smells awful. Definitely not my cup of tea.

  • Put someone off (phrase): cause someone to lose interest or enthusiasm
  • Not my cup of tea (idiom): not what one likes or is interested in

3. What kinds of food are most popular in your country?

I think street food is a staple around here. You can find bustling food stalls all around our nation, and they are my go-tos for a cheap and cheerful meal. I mean gourmet restaurants are nice and all, but street food is what our country is all about.

  • Staple (noun): an important product, especially a food, that people eat or use regularly
  • Bustling (adj): a bustling place is full of noise and activity and is usually pleasant and interesting
  • Gourmet restaurant (phrase): describe a class of restaurant, cuisine, meal or ingredient of high quality, of special presentation, or high sophistication

IELTS Speaking Part 1 Cooking:

4. Do you like cooking? (Why?/ Why not?)

Actually, I’d like to think that cooking is my forte. I developed a passion for culinary arts when I first watched the cooking show Masterchef. Since then, I have learnt a lot of recipes and I can easily whip up a good dinner.

  • Whip up (phrasal verb): prepare something to eat very quickly
  • Forte (noun): something that someone is very good at or knows a lot about

Tip for IELTS Speaking :

Use relative clauses to make your sentence longer, for example:
– I cannot stand Y, which is essentially a shrimp paste
– Something I often daydream about eating is X, which is a tip-smacking noodle soup dish served with a crab broth.

I believe that should have been ‘lip-smacking broth’ rather than tip-smacking. Otherwise, nice leveraging of higher-level native speaker lex and phrasing.
