C1 WRITING TASK

TASK. Answer the question below and write the explanation to prepare a dish in about 200 words.

“I took a cookery course last week and I absolutely love it. Do you like to cook? What is your favourite dish? Can you explain to me how to do it?

Here you have an example of writing:

My favourite dish is called chorizo and mozzarella gnocchi and I love it, the steps to prepare it are the following:

First of all, heat the oil in a medium pan over medium heat. Fry the onion and garlic for 8-10 mins until soft. Add the chorizo and fry for 5 mins more. Tip in the tomatoes and sugar, and season. Bring to a simmer, then add the gnocchi and cook for 8 mins, stirring often, until soft. Heat the grill to high.

On the other hand, stir ¾ of the mozzarella and most of the basil through the gnocchi. Divide the mixture between six ovenproof ramekins, or put it in one baking dish. Top with the remaining mozzarella, then grill for 3 mins, or until the cheese is melted and golden. Season, scatter over the remaining basil, and serve with a green salad.

Try it, it’s delicious!
