Model Answer:

Introduction:
Oh, this is such a nice topic to talk about. In fact, I am happy to have this topic to talk about because I love to cook and sometimes experiment with it. One food item I learned to prepare is homemade pizza, and here I'm going to talk about it.

What food or drink you learned to prepare:
I learned to prepare a variety of food and drink items but pizza stands out among them. Homemade pizza is a versatile dish where you can choose your favourite toppings and create a personalized culinary masterpiece. From kneading the dough to selecting the freshest ingredients for the toppings, each step contributes to the final delicious outcome.

When and where you learned to prepare this:
I learned to prepare homemade pizza during a week-long stay at my grandmother's place. It was during the summer break in 2021. She has always been an amazing cook, and I saw this as an opportunity to learn one of her cherished recipes.

How you learned to prepare this:
My grandmother patiently guided me through the entire process. We started by making the pizza dough from scratch, mixing flour, yeast, water, and a pinch of love. She showed me the technique to knead the dough until it was smooth and elastic. After that, she taught me how to prepare the tomato sauce, spread it over the rolled-out dough, and arrange the toppings – everything from veggies to different types of cheese. We then baked the pizza in her traditional oven, watching it transform into a mouthwatering creation.

And explain how you felt about learning to prepare this food or drink:
Learning to prepare homemade pizza was a delightful experience. Not only did I get to spend quality time with my grandmother, but I also gained a valuable skill that allows me to enjoy a delicious, homemade meal whenever I want. As we worked together, her passion for cooking and her nurturing guidance made the process not just about making a dish, but also about preserving cherished family traditions.
