English will have become an important tool for communication and

discovery rather than just another class to attend. And we would like to

look at the all-important topic, Food.


Food Celebrates Life.


Have you ever noticed how much of our life is centered on food? Look

at all the meetings held, decisions made, and mergers consummated over a

meal: power breakfast, power lunch, dinners, banquets, receptions, and

those endless toasts. Consider all the celebrations where food is

all-important: weddings, birthdays, religious feast days, national

holidays, etc. Food is the great icebreaker when people meet for

pleasure or business. Food is at the center of many of our important



Food Nourishes Language.


Because of this importance, much of our language (regardless of the

language) contains references to food. These references conjure up

images worth a thousand words each. The idiom page contains several

references to food and shows how these are used in a non-food-related

discussion. Think about the idioms and expressions in your native

language related to food and how and when you use them. Do you use food

expressions to describe someone’s physical characteristics (e.g., He’s

as skinny as a string bean; his belly shakes like a bowl full of

jelly.); or, to describe someone’s personality (e.g., Harry is a cre3am

puff; she’s as sweet as sugar.) or, to describe a situation or activity

(e.g., Something is fishy here; That crossword puzzle is a piece of

cake.). How we use food expressions depends on how we perceive the food,

or the culture associated with the food.

meal, meant to break the ice, consisted of insects. The second meal was

a lavish banquet that featured such delicacies as roasted beetles, live

snakes, eyeball soup, and chilled monkey brains for dessert. Some

cultures eat such things as vipers and rattlesnakes, bush rats, dog

meat, horsemeat, bats, animal heart, liver, eyes, and insects of all



Often the differences among cultures in the foods they eat are

related to the differences in geography and local resources. People who

live near water ( the sea, lakes, and rivers) tend to eat more fish and

crustaceans. People who live in colder climates tend to eat heavier,
