Describe a type of food for a special occasion
You should say:
What is it
When and where you usually eat it
How it is prepared
and explain why this food is important for the occasion.
On some social occasions like our celebrations for graduation, it's hard to satisfy every person's taste to choose a particular kind of food.However, I'd like to talk about a perfect choice for most people: the hot pot.
Most time when I gathered with my classmates and friends in Shanghai, a hot spot joint whose name is 'haidilao' for lunch or dinner always be accepted pleasantly by us. The reason is that It's easy to balance the preferences between vegetarians（素食主义者） and meat lovers(肉食主义者） by ordering a double-flavor pot（鸳鸯锅）. Meanwhile, sorts of ingredients could be chosen, my favorite foods are soft beef（嫩牛肉）, sliced beef（牛肉片） as well as imitation crabs （蟹柳）because I have a potent flavor（重口味） while some of my friends are inclined to eat mushrooms and vegetables like Chinese yam（山药） and endive sprout（豆芽）. Although we don't share a common in food material, we are high on mixing garlic（蒜）, sesame paste （芝麻酱）or onion（姜） by ourselves to make different dipping sauce. You could dip the meat or vegetables into the boiling mushroom soup pot or silly beef lard pot, waiting for 10 or 20 seconds, chatting with your friends, and then, the dishes are prepared. So it's an amazing time for foodies.
The importance on a meal for such social occasion mostly depends on preferences of people. A hot spot could provide a balanced choice covering different flavors and ingredients. Besides, smelling the fragrant and intense odor （香浓的气味）and chatting in a delightful atmosphere, we could enjoy a feast and feel heavy and happy（胖并快乐着）.
