The kind of food we eat depends on which part of the world we live in, or which part of our country we live in. For exemple, in the South of China the eat rice, but in the North eat noodles. In Scandinavia, they eat a lot of herrings and the Portuguese love sardines. But in Central Europe, away from the sea, people don’t eat so much fish, they eat more meat and sausages. In Austria, Germany and Poland, there are hundreds of differents kinds of sausages. In North America, Australia and Europe, there are two o more courses to every meal and people eat with knives and forks. In China there is only on course, all the food is togheter on the table, and they eat with chopsticks. In parts of India and the Middle East people use their fingers and bread to pick up the food.

Nowadays it is possible to transport food easily from one part of the world to the other. we can eat what we like, when we like, at any time of the year.

Banana come from the Carribbean or Africa; rice comes from India or the Usa; strawberries come from Chile or Spain.

Food is very big business. But people in poor countries are still hungry, and people in rich countries eat to much.
