Everyone loves to eat!People in every country enjoy this activity.There are so many different kinds of food in the world—Chinese food,Italian food,South American food,Indian food,and many others.Its fun to eat and compare different types of cuisine.Italian food is sometimes very spicy,but South American food is usually much spicier.Indian food can be the spiciest of all—sometimes its so hot that it can make your mouth burn!But thats okay because then you can drink some good Italian or French wine to reduce the burning.
Some wonderful food comes from the Eastern countries.Chinese food is popular in many parts of the world.Lots of people love Chinese-style vegetables because they are so crispy.Because Chinese-style vegetables are usually cooked for a much shorter time,they are crisper than American-style vegetables.In fact,they are probably the crispest cooked vegetables you can find.
Some people dont like American-style food.They think it is often less tasty and sometimes less nutritious than food in other countries.Americans spend nearly half their food dollars on meals away from home.They eat more“fast food”,such as hamburgers,hot dogs,pizzas,canned and frozen food,for fast food takes a short time to prepare.Often,Americans feel they are too busy to spend a lot of time cooking.Its easier to pick up a pack of fried chicken on the way home from work or take the family out for pizzas or burgers than to start opening cans or heating up frozen dinners after a long,hard day.
Of course,in some other countries,like France,cooking is still an“art form”；people believe that French cuisine is the best in the world.Certainly,each person has a different opinion about which country has the tastiest food.But people in many places agree that French food is the most delicious and the best prepared.
