III Conclusion

     1.Homework: To interview a friend and write about his favourite Ukrainian dish.



The Pechena Kartoplia

The bread and potatoes have been the main national dishes of all Slavonic people for centuries.

The speciality of the Pechena Kartoplia, the delicious baked potato, is cooked before customers’ eyes. The smoking potato is taken out of the oven.Then it is cut in halves. Butter and cheese are added and the potato is mashed into appetizing soft puree. Then the filling is put inside. It is of the customer’s choise- herring, pickled or fried mushrooms, crab meat, brynza, ham, cabbage, etc. But the menu doesn’t limit itself to potatoes; there is also a great selections of salads, hot sandwiches (toasts) with ham, fried mushrooms and cheese, varenyky (Ukrainian ravioli with cherry, meat, potato and mushrooms), hot fragrant soups, mouth-watering desserts (delicious pies, fruit with soufflé and fruit jelly) and various drinks (from ice-cold refreshing drinks to hot chocolate and coffee).

Lively and bright interiors, in which green, yellow and red colours dominate, create a pleasant atmosphere and festive mood.

                                                             From the history of potato

In the ancient ruins of Peru and Chile, archaeologists have found potato remains that date back to 500 B.C. The Incas grew and ate them and also worshipped them. They even buried potatoes with their dead, they stashed potatoes in concealed bins for use in case of war or famine, they dried them, and carried them on long journeys to eat on the way (dried or soaked in stew). Ancient Inca potatoes had dark purplish skins and yellow flesh. The Incas called the potato "papas," as they do today. Following is the Inca prayer that historians say they used to worship them.The potato was carried on to Italy and England about 1585, to Belgium and Germany by 1587, to Austria about 1588, and to France around 1600. Wherever the potato was introduced, it was considered weird, poisonous, and downright evil. In France and elsewhere, the potato was accused of causing not only leprosy, but also syphilis, narcosis, scronfula, early death, sterillity, and rampant sexuality, and of destroying the soil where it grew. Most Americans considered the potato as food for animals rather than for humans. As late as the middle of the 19th Century, the Farmer's Manual recommended that potatoes "be grown near the hog pens as a convenience towards feeding the hogs." Today, the potato is so common and plentiful in the Western diet that it is taken for granted. We seem to forget that the potato has only been with us for a few hundred years.

 Aston Villa are a Premier League football team from the city of Birmingham in the English midlands.

In this video, children from Birmingham visit the kitchens of Aston Villa football club. They meet a player, Nigel Reo-Coker, and learn about what footballers eat. This is part of a project that encourages children to cook and to eat healthily.

Watch again

Watching the video without any sound for a second time.

Remind the students that there were four main adult speakers in the video. Ask them who they thought these adults were.
