Useful vocabulary lesson for those interesting in cooking. I used to be, but to tell the truth is time consuming.

Thanks

    mmm…mmm…making mistakes as usual…

    “Useful vocabulary lesson for those interestED in cooking. I used to be, but to tell the truth IT’S a time-consuming” activity.”

    Tuesday, June 9th 2015

      But this recipe is not very time-consuming. It took only 15-20 minutes.

      Thursday, June 11th 2015

        Yep! You’re right. But this is the exception that proves the rule.

        Have an enjoyable weekend!

        Saturday, June 13th 2015

          Yes, it’s true. ^_^ The most delicious dishes require much time. To be honest, that’s why I don’t like cooking. :-) You have to spend much time and then this meal will be eaten and disappear like it never exists. You feel like you’ve spent this time for nothing. ^_^ So I think it’s good only for people who have fun cooking, who likes to cook or make dishes.
          Thank you for good wishing. My weekend was really enjoyable. I think it’s too late to wish you the same, because this weekend is over, so I’ll wish you a good day tomorrow. ^-^

          Sunday, June 14th 2015

Youtube says that the video is private. hehehe

Monday, June 8th 2015

    Because there are man and woman and heart-shaped thing for cooking in it. ^__^

    Thursday, June 11th 2015

Private video, WTF?!?

Monday, June 8th 2015

This video is private :-/

Monday, June 8th 2015

First, thanks
Second, I would like to say this new method is very interesting and innovative. I like it.
Finally, teachers all around the world are nice people like you. So thanks again.

Tuesday, June 9th 2015

Thanks! Very helpful, teacher

Tuesday, June 9th 2015

I like this video.
It is very useful.
Thank U

Tuesday, June 9th 2015

Thank you for posting of real life’s video.

Tuesday, June 9th 2015

got 10/10….cool!!!

Tuesday, June 9th 2015

it takes 10 to 15 minutes to cook spaghetti? Are you serious? It’s a crime! No more then 9-10 minutes! Believe me, I’m italian

Tuesday, June 9th 2015

than….sorry. not then

Tuesday, June 9th 2015

Great video, thank you very much! My wife also likes to add different herbs in dishes :)

Tuesday, June 9th 2015

great video,thank you,it is very useful.

Tuesday, June 9th 2015

Ben, you are a fantastic teacher but today we learnt how to massacre a holy italian recipe! Creme fraiche…why??????? No olive oil….why???? Coriander….why? No parmigiano reggiano…why??

Tuesday, June 9th 2015

    Don’t worry, people visit Italy for tasty food, not the UK. ;)
    About the boiling time: they probably use that kind of pasta containing eggs, instead of the much better (and healthier) pasta made of pure durum wheat. The egg-wheat pasta is popular in my country too (unfortunately) and needs more boiling time.

    Tuesday, June 9th 2015

      Hi bencebacsi, actually Ben and his friend use normal pasta, not the one with eggs. Usually pasta “all’uovo” (with eggs into the dough) like FETTUCCINE has cooking time shorter than normal pasta. No more than 5 minutes. Fettuccine al ragù (meat sauce) are awesome if
      not cooked by Ben’s friend….;))

      Wednesday, June 10th 2015

i like the test, really it helped me so much, it showed me what i have been mislearned. could any of you guys help me to know if it’s correct that word i used above (mislearned)……. words that cheated me ;)

Tuesday, June 9th 2015

Good cooking video lesson. Thank you Benjamin :)

Tuesday, June 9th 2015

That’s very important to one that want to live abroad.I am waiting for a vegetarian dish.

Tuesday, June 9th 2015

Tuesday, June 9th 2015

10/10

Tuesday, June 9th 2015

I don’t like the way this guys talk.. it is confusing.

Tuesday, June 9th 2015

    But we enjoyed of this lesson

    Wednesday, June 10th 2015

Mescal, I must confess we Spanish people (or my family and friends, that’s sure) boil the spaghettis too long (over 10 or more)and finally most people clear them with fresh water (why? we don’t know, but we do. I understand an Italian was horrified. Sorry. The truth is the best pasta and the best pizza and the best ice cream I’ve ever ate in my life are Italian’s.
Benjamin and company: very good job! I’m delighted for the fun lesson. Thank you very much!

Tuesday, June 9th 2015

A great method to teaching !! Congratulations!

Tuesday, June 9th 2015

It’s been a beautiful lesson!!! very useful for those who want to work in the restaurant. In italy, the sauce of Bolognese is a little different but i’d like to taste your sauce, too ;)

Tuesday, June 9th 2015

Now I that I could watch the video, I would like to thank you guys for this awesome video! These following words are new to me: Stir (stirring), hob, sieve, drawer, dollop, season (seasoning the food).

I would like to watch more videos like these, if possible. Again, thanks for taking your time and teaching us! :)
