A Dining Lesson

'Morning, Afternoon, 'Evening,


Next Friday we are going to have a Dining Lesson in the charming countryside, the right excuse to have good food while speaking English

Before  dinner, some time will be devoted to look at our work on the website and a few minutes to a film, rigorously subtitled in English, to experience how enjoyable this can be.   











Everybody will be coming with something cooked by their own; that's why we thought that having recipes in English could be useful to practice the language while cooking our customary food.

Come ready to share a new experience

Daniele, you can't even imagine how much I appreciate such a good will of yours in doing written practice of English. 

Well, just a few mistakes you can correct by yourself:


1. When using food in general, it's singular. People plural, their

2. The first, ordinal number, article before it. After sleeping. It helps me and my mind to wake up. Gives me the necessary to face. Breakfast singular.  It will also be a bad day, or it will be a bad day too.

3. Types

4. Physical and psychological balance

5. Balanced, protein balance

6. I eat them

1- Healty foods are for me, in general, all really organic food. Every people needs his specifical food, but it's better never eat fat and fried foods, and not many carbohydrates and sweets.. All things that we all like!!
2- My most important meal is breakfast, because it's first meal of day, just after I slept. It help to wake up to me and my mind, and it give me necessary energy for face the day. If the breakfast are bad, maybe it will be a bad day also.
3- I think all flour's type, then cereals, pasta, bread, cakes, but also rice and potatoes.
4- Physical activity is important for physically and psychologically's balance, for weight's control and for an efficient metabolism.
5- A balance diet needs a perfect balance by proteins, carbohydrates and fats, with many fiber in every meal, and the right quantity of calories that we need.
6- I very like vegetables, soups, pasta, pizza, and fruit. I like also meat, cheese and cakes, but I eat it less often.

I also would like add a recipe: asparagus soup. Boil 1 Kg of asparagus tops, drain them, then fry them lightly in a frying-pan with olive oil and 1 crushed clove of garlic. Add 1 litre of beef broth, salt, pepper and as soon as it reaches the boil, pour into a mixture of 4 eggs beaten with 50g of grated pecorino, salt and pepper. When this mixture starts curdling, stir the soup with a wooden spoon and serve it with fried bread croutons. Enjoy your meal!
