Listen to the text and express your own opinion as for food traditions in America.

AMERICAN FOOD

What is American food? Hamburgers and hot dogs? Fried chicken and giant steaks? Well, yes. But spaghetti and pizza are American too, and so is sweet and sour pork. The fact is that Americans eat every kind of food imaginable. There are, for example, more than 1,000 Chinese restaurants in New

York City alone.

AS AMERICAN AS APPLE PIE

At the same time, people in the States still like to think of some kinds of food as especially American. They like the idea of the American family sitting around the table eating turkey at Thanksgiving. They like to think of ‘Mom’ as the best cook in the world, even if their own mother never did much cooking. ‘As American as apple pie’, and ‘Like Mother makes it’ are popular expressions.

The truth is, though, that families in the US eat together less often than they used to. Instead of meeting at the dinner table, families often meet in the kitchen, around the refrigerator. There’s no time for old-fash­ioned cooking. Quick snacks all through the day have taken its place. And to save trouble, people eat wherever they like, in the street, in front of the TV, or at their desks.

An enormous fast-food industry gives hungry American the snacks they want when they want them. Ice cream, popcorn, and hot dogs are on sale everywhere. Best known, perhaps, is the McDonald’s hamburger busi­ness.

But if more and more Americans eat fast food, more and more Ameri­cans also worry about it. Fast food makes you fat, and Americans are the fattest people in the world. They are also the most interested in their he>

Being fat, in fact, can cause real problems for an American. He or she will find it harder to get a good job, or even to make friends. If you want to do well, you must be thin. It doesn’t seem fair, does it? Advertisers and fast-food sellers scream at people to eat, eat, eat. But inside, there is another voice saying ‘stop, stop, stop.’
