VII. Read what Mark says about his food memories. Decide if the statements are true (T) or false (F).
WHAT WAS YOUR FAVOURITE FOOD WHEN YOU WERE A CHILD?
I loved lasagne. It all began when I was three years old. I flew to Australia with my parents on Singapore Airlines. On the plane they served special food for children, and one of the dishes was lasagne. I fell in love with that dish immediately and ate a big portion. Since then, whenever we eat out in an Italian restaurant, I’ve chosen lasagne.
DID YOU HATE ANY FOOD WHEN YOU WERE A CHILD?
Sure, I really hated fish. My mother loved it, so we had it almost every day. Although she cooked different dishes such as steamed fish, fried fish, or fish soup, I still didn’t like the taste, the smell, or anything about it. The strange thing is that I liked fish nuggets at Kuick, and I had them sometimes on Sundays.
WHICH DO YOU PREFER: HAVING MEALS AT HOME OR EATING OUT?
My job involves travelling a lot, so I treasure any meal with my parents at home. It’s our happiest time when we can gather together and share a lot of things. I love eating at home also because my mother is a great cook who can create unusual dishes with everyday ingredients.
