English food and the qualities it is often criticized for

It is accepted that Britain and good food are the two things that can’t be associated. Moreover, it is really very difficult to find English food in England. In Greece you can eat Greek food, in France—French, in Italy—Italian, but in England in any High Street it is easier to find Indian or Chinese restaurants than English ones. Besides, it is not only in restaurant that foreign dishes are replacing traditional British food. Go to any supermarket and you will see that sales of pasta and pizza are booming there. Why has this happened? What is wrong with the English cooks that they prefer cooking lasagna to shepherd’s pie? Anyway, English food was not always disgusting and tasteless; it was not boiled to death or swimming in fat. Actually, the British have always imported food from abroad and foreign trade has become the major influence on British cooking. English cuisine like English language absorbed ingredients from allover the world—chicken, rabbit, apples and tea. All of these and more were successfully incorporated into British dishes. Another important influence on English cooking is certainly weather. The good old British rain gives them rich soil and green grass, which means that the Englishmen are able to produce some of the finest varieties of meat, fruit and vegetables. And there’s no need to fancy sauces or complicated recipes to disguise their taste. For comparison, abroad poor soils mean more discovery, searching for food and invention. That is why it is wrong to claim that British food is terrible. On the contrary, English cuisine is wonderful, still it has a great minus—it is very time–consuming. For example, making a Christmas cake should start a few weeks beforehand. And it takes about half a year for a Christmas pudding to mature. Yet, it is so delicious that it really…...

...Nutrition All these courses are giving me a hard time. The two language courses are the easier courses I have this semester. ESL is mainly reading and writing while CHI is more about speaking and writing. In order to do well in these two courses, I will read more books to make myself familiar with the good writing style and correct grammar. Also, I will find more chance to practice English and Chinese speaking. It is because the best way to improve my speaking skill is to practice with native speaker. They can immediately give me a right direction if I make a mistake. I consider the other three science courses as the more difficult courses. Pharmacology is the learning of how drugs work in our body while Physiology is the learning of how our body works. Both courses have a really tight schedule with a lot of new terms and concepts introduced in one class time. For example, I am learning about Pharmacodynamics and Pharmacokinetics in Pharmacology. Also, in Physiology class, I get to know how the neurons, and million different receptors works in our body. Nutrition 108 requires lots of memorization of food and nutrients our body required. With the tremendous amount of new knowledge, I have to review every time before and after class. This gives me a better chance to get a high grade and not falling behind....

...Text 28, The Sweet Menu presents the idea of solitary eating by giving us the image of a man sat all alone in a restaurant ‘as if someone will come’ where as text 18, Mexican Scrambled Eggs demonstrates social eating by illustrating that you can ‘whip up a batch off these’. Both texts are slightly similar when it comes to purpose as the sweet menu is a text which makes the reader feel quite guilty because this man is hoping he will be enjoying dinner with someone tonight but ends up being alone surrounded by different families. However it is a text to entertain and explore. However in Mexican scrambled eggs it is a recipe to entertain, inform and explore. The audience that the sweet menu is aimed for could be older people because they usually tend to be alone unlike young adults who don’t like going to a restaurant on their own. This is different to text 16 because it is aimed at younger adults and we see this when it says ‘greatest hangover cures around’. This gives the reader the sense that she had a party last night and isn’t alone this morning because of it. The structure of the sweet menu is interesting because it is in couplets which represents 2 people eating at a dinner table but in this case it’s the opposite because he is on his own. Also the couplets represent the pace of the poem which is quite slow and quite painful which...

...indigenous people of Australia, who probably entered Australia from Southeast Asia for about 40 000-60 000 years ago, and is therefore one of the oldest indigenous people in the world. Today, there are currently around 517,000 Aborigines in Australia, spread across the country. The word "Aboriginal" means native or indigenous people, the first people to settle on a piece of land. The word is used as a term for various indigenous groups in Australia. In 1770, s the Englishman James Cook and his crew landed on the Australian ground. At first the "white man" used Australia as a penal colony, a place you brought prisoners who were no longer desired in Europe. The aborigines were uprooted from their lands. Many died of diseases that came with the English men, because their immune system was not designed to handle such things. As many as 90% of the aborigines may have been extinct for various reasons. When James Cook arrived, it was about 300 000 aborigines in Australia. Those who did not die of illness risked being shot or taken as slaves. They were regarded as uncivilized or animals, as they not used clothes, had a house or modern weapons. Before the british men came the aborigines lived as nomads and as hunter-gathers with a strong dependence on the land and their agriculture for survival. After the settlement of the britsh the indigenous people were displaced from their ways of life and were forced to submit to European rule, and later encouraged to assimilate into Western......

...Tyus Jacobs Professor Brannan English 106 March 12, 2013 The Hardships of Restaurant Work Weather it be Expediting food or serving tables, wouldn't it be nice if your job was easy? How about being able to satisfy all of your customers, that would be extremely helpful. Unfortunately this is not the case, we all have to sacrifice in order to get through the work day. With all the ruckus goes on in a restaurant, employees must keep focus on their job to do it well. Workers should try to keep personal problems from affecting them during shift hours. To make the job easier an employee must know how to communicate with people; while having knowledge of the food, but at the same time being able to multitask. A lot of people today do not have good people skills, and need to work on it. Although Expediters do not deal with customers face to face, but there is always chance to make customers unhappy. If a worker is in this situation, they must keep calm and listen to what the customer has to say. Usually workers only half listen because of their frustration towards the guest. But one should listen to the customer’s needs and perspective to better understand the problem. In the process workers should try to meet all of the guests needs, and do not let emotions get in the way. It is never......

...third floor there would be more than one language class. That the student could choose to learn, like Arabic, English and French. In every class there would be interactive whitebeards and on the desks there would be computers, to help students communicate with other students, in different countries. Lessons would take fifty minutes and breaks would be thirty minutes. Students could buy food in school canteen and sits on the comfortable sofa, not on the typical wooden chair. There wouldn't be mid-term exams, just tests and quizzes. The teachers would be smiling and this school would be full of kindhearted people who would be my friends. I adore this school because you can ACTUALLY learn something you use in life. My Ideal School At the moment, I go to a large school in Saar. It is quite a good school, but, obviously it could be better! In this essay, I am going to describe my ideal school. My ideal school would be on an island, but near a sand beach so that students could do sunbathing after school to relax. There would also be a class for sleeping where we could take a rest during breaks. My school would also have a cinema hall so we could watch films in free times. Another thing would be a saloon where students could wear makeup and cut their hairs. Students would not study all the usual subjects. They would study mathematics, physics, computer and English which includes a lot of speaking. However, there would be some new optional subjects, for example, fashion......

...“N”. My parents were having a hard time finding a name for me. So my parents decide to take a look at the book full of names that started with the letter “N” finally they decided to name me Nikita. They also saw that Nikita was a very uncommon name. So that’s how my name came to be Nikita. Indian culture is really hard to follow when you live in America. I think it’s hard to be an Indian and American at the same time. I have to be both because if I forget my Indian culture my parents get really mad and if I don’t be American I wouldn’t fit in like other people. But I think I like being Indian knowing more or different languages than other Americans it makes me feel special. My dad doesn’t allow me and my little brother to speak English at home because he doesn’t want us to forget our language and I think that’s the right thing because I forgot how to write Hindi and if I wouldn’t speak Hindi I might forget how to speak it too. My mom always cooks Indian meals for our family so I and my little brother can know what an Indian meal is like. Having a little Indian and American flavor in some of the things it makes them special well that’s what I think not parents they don’t like it. In my family there is a tradition for many years or maybe Indian tradition that we eat dinner really late and we have a very heavy dinner. But I don’t really do that because I think eating late and having a heavy dinner makes you gain weight so I really don’t follow that and my dad really......

...Dallas Wohlfeil Wohlfeil 1 English 1A-M/W/F 11:40am section MP#2 Draft Proposal March 11, 2015 Draft Proposal Question at Issue: What are food labels, and the benefits of having food labels? Food labels are a panel found on a package of food, which contains a variety of information about the nutritional value of the food item. There are many pieces of information which are standard on most food labels, including serving size, number of calories, grams of fat, included nutrients, and a list of ingredients. This information helps people who are trying to restrict their intake of fat, sodium, sugar, or other ingredients, or those individuals who are trying to get enough of the healthy nutrients such as calcium or Vitamin C. The label provides each item with its approximate percent daily value, generally based on a 2,000-calorie diet. The benefits of have a food label on your product are reading the nutrition facts label and utilizing the information it contains can help you improve your eating habits. People who use the nutrition facts label tend to consume fewer calories; less who don't make use of these labels. Also another added benefit of having food labels is the ability to read the label to adjust your diet to become healthier. My connection: The connection that I have with food labels is a simple one. I love to eat healthy and be able to know what are the ingredients that are in the products (food) that I’m eating. I want to know......

...In my english class we have been learning about food. Where our food comes from, advertising about food, how people need to buy local instead of fast food, and how we need to focus on producing more food rather than importing perfect types of food. In the next few paragraphs I will talk about all these subjects and what we can do to fix them. One thing i think we should do is make people aware about what is in our food and make people aware at a younger age. If people are exposed to the products people put into food when we are younger we have much more time to change our eating habits and make the younger generation much healthier. Foods such as fast food, almost anything in a box (chips, cookies, etc.), carbs, and much more. We need to let people know how bad these foods are for you, and things to eat in place of these foods. Foods such as Vegetables, fruits, meats, etc. Another thing we need to establish is the fast food restaurants. Fast food is terrible for you, and there need to be more regulations on this. Maybe if they put the ammount of calories you consume with your order on the receipt it will scare the people eating their food into either not eating as much of it or not eating at all. With the technology we have today I am sure that will not be impossible. Anything that makes people more aware of the affects todays food has on our bodies is a good thing. I also think that foods they sell at schools are horrible for you. They offer healthy items but......

...since I slept for about 5 hours until it’s near to dinner time. I took my bath and settle down because the food had been bought by my hubby. Then I rest and online my Facebook and get to sleep at 11.30pm. Sunday 31/7/2011 Today I woke up at 12.30 pm just to watch Melodi on TV3. That was just ridiculous. After finished watching, I went for bath and then I cooked instant noodle since I got no idea of what am I going to cook. After eating I went to my room and turn on the laptop. I put on my favorite songs and fell asleep until it was already 8pm. I didn’t realize it was that long. So I get up, wash my face and cook another instant noodle for the day. Then I went out with my hubby to Dataran Merdeka and spend the night there until it reaches 2am and we went home. Monday 1/8/2011 (7.50am) I got to woke up early today to cook for sahur. A eat and take a nap before I get ready for college. The water in the bathroom was so cold that morning. I get ready at 6am and my hubby sent me to the college. We need to move early because he got to work at 7am every day. So, I arrived at the college at 6.30pm. I sat in front of the guard house and wait until 7.15am. I walked in and sit at a black round table near to the cafeteria for a while before proceeding to my class at 8am. (8.00pm) I arrived at home quite late because I went fishing with my hubby until 5pm and went to buy food. We got two fishes for today. After we reached home, I went straight to bed because I was too tired. My......

...people to believe that eating is not just eating, there is much culture behind it and so will people in the foreign country feel. I am in favor of the author’s view that Chinese food has become one of the international food. People from all over the world enjoy it because of many reasons. If someone ask me a question:’ Who enjoys eating the most and which country values food the most’. My answer must be China. The cuisine culture in China has a long history and a lot of people in China put eating on the top of their list. Though the pace of the society has been fastened and people tend to have less time for eating, eating still plays an important role in our daily life. We fulfill our appetite and heart with satisfaction and pleasure at the same time. Nowadays, more and more foreigners love food in China and Chinese cuisine. Chinese food is famous and welcomed by all over the world. What make the Chinese food and eating culture so famous? Firstly, there is a various kind of flavors in Chinese cuisine. People in the south eat rice and people in the north eat noodles. Food in the north is usually sweet, salt in the south, sour in the east and spicy in the west. And these are just kind of food and flavors. You wil also find it interesting that people’s character seem to have connection with the flavor and food. Northern people are usually sweet and tender. Southern people are open and energetic and people in western areas are unrestrained and strict. Just as the saying......

...Jonathan Dupre Professor Gabrielle English 101 Section 81 Doyle Essay 1 December 2015 The Wolverine & Horse Think about a wolverine for a moment. Wolverines live in the Northern Hemisphere in places such as the northern United States, Alaska, Greenland, Canada, Siberia, and the Arctic range of Russia. Wolverines prefer colder areas because they use the snow for dens, and food storage. It is a stocky and muscular carnivore, more closely resembling a small bear than other mustelids. The wolverine, a solitary animal, has a reputation for ferocity and strength out of proportion to its size, with the documented ability to kill prey many times larger than itself. The wolverine is a powerful and versatile predator and scavenger. Prey mainly consists of small to medium-sized mammals, but the wolverine has been recorded killing prey such as adult deer. Wolverine meaning as a spiritual animal consists of power. These are incredibly muscular creatures, and all that power is stored in their small bodies. These mammals can spring into ferocious action in an instant. Every single wolverine is different from one another, but each wolverine allows us to see power in a new form. Most other small carnivores will not attack larger prey that is bigger than themselves, but not the wolverine. The wolverine spirit pushes us humans to reach a higher and fuller potential. When things get tough the wolverine tells us to rise above and to overcome it with......
