Example: I think there should be serviettes on the table.

II. Pronunciation Warm-up

Listen to the Festive Table Dialogue and practise the sounds /æ/, /e/ and /ai/. Say if you can lay the table for dinner.

Festive Table Dialogue

- Have you laid the table, Ann?

- I’ve laid it for ten.

- For ten? But why so many?

- It’s a holiday dinner, Granny.

- Did you spread a white tablecloth, then?

- Mum did it last time and she’ll do it again.

- You’ve put the flowers in the middle, right?

- Sure I’ve done it and it’s a beautiful sight.

III. Grammar Smart

1. Look and recall.

Use compound adjectives if you want to describe a dish, a place, a person related to meals and cooking.

• adjective+noun: a fast food restaurant; a free-time activity; a fulltime job; a low-fat diet; a brand new oven; home-made food; a worldwide reputation; takeaway food; handmade plates; home-grown vegetables; sugar free coffee etc.

Example: McDonald’s is a fastfood restaurant with a worldwide reputation.

a) Play a grammar fill-in game. Use the box:

1. My mum is a cook. She has a full-time job at a restaurant.

2. If you want to lose weight, you should stick to a … diet.

3. I like this … coffee.

4. Put these … plates on the table, Kate.

5. … food is very popular in Britain.

6. Use this table cloth. It is … and beautiful.


sugar free;



brand new



7. My granny’s vegetables are very useful, because they are … .

b) Read the adverts and complete its lines.


2. Read and remember!

If you want to describe food or meat stressing its ‘having or containing’ quality, use adjectives by adding -y to the noun.

Example: salt - salty Too much salty food is not healthy.

a) Let’s play a grammar tennis game forming the adjectives from the following nouns.

Example: A: salt

B: salty taste; sugar; lump; milk; meat; lemon; spice

b) Look at the pictures and guess what the people can say about the food they are eating.

Example: The meat is too spicy!

IV. Word Smart

1. Study the words and words combinations and say:

a) which kitchen utensils you have in your kitchen and how you use them;

a bread plate; cruets for spices; a frying pan; a baking tray; a mincing machine; an oven; food processor.

Example: I have a food processor in the kitchen. My mum uses it for blending vegetables or fruit.

b) how you lay the table;

Example: First of all I spread a white tablecloth.

2. Interview your classmates and find out:

• how they lay the table when their family is expecting guests;

• how they help their mother in cooking and laying the table;

• what dishes are cooked for a festive dinner.

Tell your classmates about your findings.

Example: A: How do you lay the table when your family is expecting guests?

B: We spread a beautiful tablecloth on the table.

C: I put a vase with flowers in the middle of the table.

A: I have found out that Ann spreads a beautiful table cloth on the table and Helen puts a vase with flowers in the middle.

At Home: Write how you use your kitchen utensils to prepare meals (8— 10 sentences).

V. Time to Read

1. Read/listen to how Ann’s mum was getting ready for receiving guests and say how Ann helped her mum.

Expecting Guests

Ann, we are expecting guests today and I need your help badly. There’s so much work to do! Let’s lay the table for dinner. We’ll be 12 altogether, so lay 12 places.

Spread a white tablecloth. Then take the dishes, knives and forks from the sideboard and put one for each person. Now, fetch cruets for spices - salt, pepper, oil and vinegar - and put them in the middle of the table. Don’t forget about serviettes and a bread plate.

Now, will you help me with cooking? Please, get the mincing machine from the table where all the kitchen utensils are and mince this piece of meat, please. I want to cook cabbage rolls for the main course. Unfortunately, our food processor is not working.

Will you peel these potatoes and onions, Ann? I’ll make potato salad with mayonnaise dressing. It’ll be a nice refreshment, I think, in addition to potato crisps. And then comes my speciality - roasted goose a la Ivanenko.

My! Isn’t there a smell of meat burning? I believe it’s the goose in the oven! For goodness sake, get it out quick!

What a relief! I’ve never had such a perfect roast, so beautifully browned. It makes my mouth water just to look at it. We’ll serve it with vegetables for garnish.

And now for dessert. It’ll be an apple pie. Be a good girl and get me the baking tray… That’s about all, I think. Thank you, dear, you’ve been a great help to me.

Across Cultures

Crisps (BrE) - thin pieces of potatoes cooked in very hot oil and then dried; chips (AmE)

2. Fill in the correct word.

Example: Fish salad is my favourite dish.

1. Put the … under the plate, it is hot.

2. Will you put another … on the table?

3. The teacher treated us to some … .

4. The … is too spicy and I don’t like it.

5. Will you put two more … on the table? Your grandparents are coming.

6. Have some … before dinner.
