Sample Answer:

My favourite food is from Italy.  There are a lot of world famous Italian foods, for example pizza and spaghetti and risotto. These are all very tasty, but the Italian food I like the most is lasagne. 

Lasagne is a meat and cheese and pasta dish.  First you cook a meat sauce very slowly with some vegetables, herbs and wine.  Then you need a white sauce made with milk, butter, flour and a little cheese.  You put meat sauce then pasta in a dish in layers and finish with the white sauce on the top.  Finally you bake this in the oven.

The dish smells delicious and tastes fantastic! It makes me think of happy holidays in beautiful Italy and the wonderful food I ate there.
