Hi egp2eamp
In English 'a pillow' is something you put your head on when you go to sleep! How do you cook in a pillow? It sounds very interesting and I would love to try it as I love cooking.
Best wishes, Tina (LearnEnglish Teens Team)

Yes, I sometimes cook. I`m young for cooking but I can cook a few things: puree, meatballs, eggs, pancakes and make simple cakes. When I`m alone at home I sometimes cook other meals but just according to the instructions.

I don't know to cook because I'm young, but I've tried to cook something for my family and it was awful. But, I'm looking forward to learn how to cook after few years.

Hi emitis. I don't know Iranian food very well. Could you tell us a bit more about Ghorme-sabzi and Tahchin? How do you make them?

I like cooking, and I cook once a week. I like preparing healthy food, which doesn't require a lot of time. I like fish, sea fruits, apple pie and chocolate cake and I prepare it often. But I like fruit salad the most. It's easy to make, it's healthy and delicious. I can serve it to my friends and family for breakfast and as a snack.

Hi Melodyoo!

Thanks for your comment. Yes, the Vocabulary exercises section is quite easy and you clearly have a very good level of English. :) Don't worry, we're going to be adding a new section for higher levels in the autumn. Keep your eyes open for it!

All the best, Jo (LearnEnglish Teens Team)

I love to cook for my family, especially fish ! For instance, I put a whole fish flavoured with salt, pepper, a twist of lemon and rosemary which is wrapped in aluminium foil in the stove for about an hour. In the meantime I roast some bread in a pan and cut peppers, cucumber and iceberg lettuce to create a delicious side salat.. Mmmh.. The fish in the stove begins to smell if it's ready. Just delicious (and my family likes it, too)!
