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

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

    Profile photo of Regino Regino

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

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

        Have an enjoyable weekend!

        Profile photo of Regino Regino

          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. ^-^

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??

Profile photo of mescal mescal

    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.

    Profile photo of bencebacsi bencebacsi

      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….;))

      Profile photo of mescal mescal

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 ;)

    But we enjoyed of this lesson

    Profile photo of Hasib Nasir Hasib Nasir

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!
