Describe someone you know who is a good cook.
You should say:
- Who this person is?
- How do you know him or her?
- What kinds of food does he/she cooks?
I am a foodie and have a great adulation for various cuisines from various regions and parts of the world. Food is indispensable to our living and hence, should be consumed with a sense of reverence for the region it comes from and above that, the people who grow (the crops) or prepare it. A person who I know is a prodigious cook and has dexterous culinary skills is my friend Albert. He is one of the best cooks I have ever met. The meals that are prepared by him drive one crazy and make one lick one’s fingers time and again.
I have known him for the last three years and met him at a food show for the first time. He wasn’t a participant there and came as a guest just like me. It was at a food stall while he and I were savoring a Moroccan dish when I met him for the first time. As I have a keen propensity for food, I immediately sensed his energy for the same only to know later on that he is an adept cook himself. We bonded well and became good friends ever since then. We generally visit such places together as the whole experience of enjoying art with someone who is more passionate about it than you is exhilarating. He once invited me to his home to taste what he had prepared and the moment I took a bite of the dish he made, I was flabbergasted. It was then that I got to know of an astounding talent he has.
He can prepare a myriad of dishes including continental food items. Apart from that, he is proficient in Indian, Thai, Korean, and Vietnamese cuisines as well.

Well, there are a plethora of options for people to build their career in cooking in my country. Indians are quite a foodie and love having good meals therefore, there is never a dearth of work for the ones who know how to prepare well.
What special dishes do you want to taste? Why?
Well, I don’t have such a hankering to taste something, however, I would love to try Korean noodles and that too, the spiciest one. I have heard a lot about those noodles being fiery and savory.
What traditional food you would like your foreign friends to try?
I would love my foreign friends to savor the essence of spices and the aroma that Indian food has. India is a diverse nation and hence, the diversity of the food items is immensely rich. Since I am from Uttarakhand, I would want them to try pahadi food.
How often do Indian people cook at home?
Indians love to prepare food at home more often than not. Indians usually prefer eating at home and hence, cook at home quite recurrently.
There are more restaurants nowadays. Do you think people eat out more?
Yes, I believe people have started eating outside more than ever before. There have been more people who are employed as compared to the ancient times and women employees have been surging these days. One doesn’t have the time to prepare one’s own food and hence, resorts to dining out at food outlets.
