  • - In today's video, I'm going to be going

  • over all of the ways to talk about food in English,

  • from saying that it tastes great to, well, not so great.

  • A lot of the times people will ask you

  • how you like your chicken.

  • And it's kind of important to have an answer for that

  • so that you actually get a meal that you really want.

  • First, we have it fried or deep-fried,

  • which is made by cooking meat in oil.

  • The difference between fried and deep-fried

  • is that deep-fried takes a lot more oil

  • than just regularly fried chicken.

  • Grilled, this is a more healthy alternative

  • because there's not a lot of oil.

  • It's chicken that was cooked directly on a grill.

  • Crunchy.

  • Have you ever had chicken that just tastes really crunchy

  • that crunches in your mouth?

  • That is what it means.

  • (upbeat music)

  • People will also ask you how you like your eggs in English.

  • First, we have one of my personal favorites, scrambled.

  • Scrambled eggs are made by mixing the eggs together

  • while you're cooking.

  • Next we have poached.

  • Poached eggs are made

  • by partially cooking the egg in simmering water.

  • When it's served, the egg whites will be soft

  • and you'll be able to see the entire yolk.

  • Sunny side up.

  • Yes, this is a way to describe eggs.

  • Sunny side up is when your egg is only cooked

  • on one side of it, you never flip it.

  • It's called sunny side up

  • because the yolk still looks like a sun when it's finished.

  • It sits whole in the middle of the fried egg,

  • looking very similar to a sun.

  • If you wanna know better how to use

  • all of these different expressions to describe food

  • in the actual context in which they're used in,

  • you've gotta see real life examples.

  • And the best way that I recommend for you

  • is to go check out Fluent You.

  • They teach you through media,

  • whether that be TED talks, movies, music videos.

  • Fluent you comes up with these lessons for each video

  • where there's quizzes and vocabulary sets.

  • It's just fantastic.

  • In fact, you can get it today for two weeks free,

  • by pressing on the link in the description below.

  • Go check it out, do the two week trial,

  • and then come back here and let me know how it helped you.

  • I'm really excited to see.

  • Don't say delicious.

  • It is old and outdated, mouth-watering.

  • I know this sounds weird,

  • but this is the perfect adjective to describe food

  • that looks or tastes so good

  • that even just thinking about it makes your mouth water.

  • For example, I could say, oh my gosh,

  • those donuts look so mouthwatering.

  • Flavorful, this is used to describe food in English

  • that is just full of flavor.

  • It's something like, this pizza is so flavorful.

  • Yummy, this is an informal way to say

  • that something tastes good.

  • So if they'll use it in formal situations,

  • please do not.

  • That would look so weird.

  • Another thing you could say is, wow, this food is amazing.

  • A lot of the times this is used

  • when you're pleasantly surprised

  • about the taste of something.

  • Maybe you didn't think something would taste that good,

  • but wow, it's amazing.

  • Really good.

  • This expression, I personally use all the time

  • to describe food, I don't know why.

  • It's kinda the same thing as delicious,

  • but it's what's actually common and used in America.

  • So I could say something like this fried chicken

  • is really good, I love it.

  • You have to try it.

  • Tastes great.

  • This is another common way to talk about food

  • that tastes really good.

  • It's again, like saying something is delicious,

  • but without using that word, because it's outdated a bit.

  • (upbeat music)

  • As a general rule, always avoid saying yuck

  • when you're talking about food that you don't like.

  • If you say yuck, it could really offend the cook

  • of the food or the person that made the food for you.

  • Use these next expressions instead.

  • The food is too, for my taste.

  • So depending on the food,

  • let's say you have some seafood that you don't like.

  • I could say this seafood is too fishy for my taste.

  • It's just not right for you.

  • What's even better though,

  • is that you can throw in a compliment

  • right before saying that.

  • So I could say, wow, this seafood is so fresh,

  • but it's a little too fishy for me.

  • It could use a little more or less.

  • Use this expression to say that you would like food better

  • if the flavors were a little different.

  • You can say maybe it needs a little more salt

  • or maybe it needs less sugar.

  • This tastes different, I think I prefer.

  • If something tastes new and unfamiliar to you

  • and you aren't necessarily liking it,

  • this is when you can use this phrase.

  • It's a polite way to say

  • that you would want a different food instead.

  • (upbeat music)

  • First, we have a balanced diet.

  • Most people simply try to keep a balanced diet,

  • which includes eating food from the main food groups

  • like grains, fruits, vegetables, protein, stuff like that.

  • For example, I could say that I am living a balanced diet

  • because I want to be healthy and live long.

  • Low-carb diet.

  • You might hear this when somebody is trying to lose weight

  • because what a low carb diet means is low carbohydrates.

  • They're trying not to eat as much bread

  • and pasta and stuff like that,

  • everything that includes carbs in it,

  • which leads us to our next way to describe your diet

  • which is trying to lose weight.

  • If you're trying to lose weight,

  • it means you're trying to become thinner.

  • So you can talk about your diet and say, yeah,

  • I eat a lot of salads and I don't eat too late at night

  • because I am trying to lose weight.

  • Vegetarian, I was actually vegetarian

  • when I was in high school.

  • And what this means is that you don't eat meat.

  • Your diet does not include meat products.

  • So you have grains, fruits, and vegetables,

  • and you get your protein

  • from different sources other than meat.

  • (upbeat music)

  • A lot of the times people will ask you what you usually eat.

  • I don't know why, it's just a thing in America.

  • So here are some terms to help with that.

  • Fast food, it is food that is served very quickly,

  • hence the word fast food.

  • Think of more unhealthy foods,

  • that's kind of what fast food is.

  • One-pot meal.

  • This is exactly what it is.

  • You cook all of your ingredients,

  • everything just in one pot.

  • So a lot of soups could be a one-pot meal,

  • and stuff like that.

  • Dessert, dessert is my favorite.

  • All time favorite food.

  • I am a sweet tooth, I love sweet food.

  • So dessert is sweet food like ice cream, cake.

  • Onto the next expression, which I actually just mentioned,

  • which is to have a sweet tooth.

  • This means that you are somebody

  • who really likes sugary things.

  • And I actually find that a lot of Americans are this way

  • because there's so much sugar in our food.

  • To eat healthy.

  • This is very simple, it means that you're eating food

  • that's good for your health.

  • So like salads and lean meats and no dessert.

  • I'm going to stick with being a sweet tooth.

  • If you guys want to review everything that I went over

  • in this video, plus a little bit more information,

  • you've gotta download the free fluent in PDF

  • in the description below.

  • It's absolutely free, I promise.

  • Go study up on these words and then use them yourself.
