READING
AMERICAN CHANGING FOOD HABITS

Traditional American food is very varied. This


country receives gastronomic influences from many
cultures (Chinese, Mexican, Italian, Thai or Japanese).
If people like a dish, it's not important where it comes
from. That's why the American Cuisine is rich and full of
tastes.

Additionally, the food industry influences the food


choices that people make. For example, during the 90's
the prepacked and precooked food was really popular.
All American homes have cupboards full of cans, packs
and cartons of food.

Now with the influence of social networks and


multimedia, people feel the need to eat more traditional
food. Internet opens the door to all this new food, but a
classic dish like apple pie is always welcome in any
family table.
Work in pairs. Answer the following questions based on the reading.
1. Why is American food so varied? .

2. What changes does the text say about American eating habits? .

3. Do you think eating habits are changing in your country? Why? .

4. What dish from your country do you consider a classic? .
