I’m identified as a big-time food lover and I have a zest for sumptuous dishes and a variety of cuisines whenever and wherever possible. Although every time I have a different dish, it casts a charm on me, there was an experience that I can’t forget to this date. I went to visit my friend at his home and planned to stay for two days and it was then that I got to know the adroit culinary skills of my friend.
Having reached his home, we kept on promenading across the city and strolling on the streets. After getting back to his home, we were famished and extremely knackered and thought of ordering our favourite dishes. Unfortunately, the food store was closed that day and all others nearby his house were not up to the mark. Hence, he proffered his thoughts of cooking the dish himself that day, to which I acquiesced, although I had a doubt.
After 30 minutes, he brought the Kyrgyz dish that he had prepared, the aroma of which stimulated my olfactory senses. It smelled great and the colour of the dish was worth drooling for. Unexpectedly, two of our other friends joined. We had a lot of fun and we enjoyed the dish prepared by my friend along with the snacks the other two had brought along. That day is worth remembering due to the savoriness of the food and the company in which we relished it. I don’t know if that delectable dish could be made again, as my friend concurred. Strangely, even he didn’t have any idea that the dish would turn out to be so luscious and piquant with the delectable flavours.

What is the difference between eating at home and eating out on special occasions?
Eating at home is something that we usually do in order to keep up with our survival. However, in general, eating out is not a recurrent activity and hence, going out on special occasions is considered a means of celebrating.
What national identity can be seen in a nation’s cuisine?
The way the spices are added to a dish and the quality and quantity of the seasoning that is added implicates a nation’s cuisine. For instance, black pepper, turmeric, and coriander powder are some of the principal toppings that are added to Indian cuisine.
