Model Answer 1:

I’ll talk about one of my friends whom I think is the great cook I know. Actually, he is not a gifted cook but he has a good reputation of making a delicious and tasty menu out of very ordinary ingredients.

We got to know each other many years ago. At first, his wife and mine were colleagues and good friends; therefore afterward, we got good friends too. They always invite us to their family and have dinner together during the weekends.

I guess he is good at cooking some traditional Chinese food, such as rice, fishes, meat and some tofu products. He likes using fresh and seasonal ingredients, prepared with a minimum of fuss and beautifully balanced. Both the color, aroma, and taste of these dishes are very fantastic.

And I believe that what makes him so good at cooking is love. I mean, at first, he just wanted to cook some nutritious food for his little daughter. He even went to the chef school every day to get training for half a year, to learn various kinds of Chinese food. Therefore, he then became proficient in cooking. I think besides a good cook, he is also a responsible father.
