Belarusian cuisine is considered to be one of the most diverse cuisines in Europe.Traditional dishes of this country mainly consist of vegetables, meats and breads.One of the most delicious Belarusian soups is called “khaladnik”. It’s a cold type of borscht, which is mainly eaten in summer. This beetroot soup is eaten with sour cream. Potato is the main ingredient of many dishes. It is known as the second bread of Belarusians. Perhaps, everyone has heard of “draniki”.This is a pancakes made of patatoes.Meat is also widely used in Belarusian .Slightly smoked salty pork with onions and garlic is also popular. Traditional desserts,far beyond are sweet pancakes with cottage cheese.

I think that food in Britain is one of the best in the world because it has a lot of different food from different countries. My favourite food is pizza or carbonara

British food reflects different cultures from all over the world. British people enjoy tasting a huge range of flavors. In London you can find Greek Italian Spanish Chinese even Persian cuisine. Lately you can find restaurants where chefs reinventing classic British dishes. We live in a globalized society something that effects all countries' cuisine

Wow, this video made me hungry. Well, in my country, we follow the Mediterranean diet. It's very healthy and delicious at the same time. You should try it. And I'm really impressed of that food market, it's really interesting.

Hi Nushaba,

What is the national food in Azerbaijan? What does it taste like? Can you describe your favourite meal? I would love to know more!

I think that the British food is delicious. I love to eat fish and chips. I've never tasted Chinese and Indian food and I'm sceptical because I think it has a lot of spices.
By the way I have watched Word on the Street in the television in my country and I think it's a lovely show.

You can get kebabs in Britain too, but I'm sure they're not as nice as in Turkey! When I lived in Germany there were loads of Turkish restaurants so I ate quite a lot of Turkish food then. Delicious!
