#085 Food Idioms in English to sound like an English native speaker

Hi everyone! I am Georgiana, founder of speakenglishpodcast.com. My mission is to help you to speak English fluently.

Do you want to sound more like an English native speaker? 

Well, today you’ll learn 6 new popular expressions in English related to food. After that, I’ll practice your speaking with a funny mini-story.

Ok. Let’s learn some new idioms:

There's a type of food that always makes us feel better because it reminds us of our childhood. That kind of food is called COMFORT FOOD.

We eat comfort food because it comforts us. Although we tend to feel better after eating this type of food, it is not necessarily healthy food. 

Example: 

“After a tiring day, it’s so wonderful to cook some comfort food and read a good book.”

And who doesn’t like eating cake? I just can’t say no to a piece of cake. And when something is extremely easy to do we say it’s a PIECE OF CAKE. 

However, this expression doesn’t have anything to do with food.

There’s another similar expression. Instead of “piece of cake” you could say “AS EASY AS PIE.”

Examples:

“I thought the test would be difficult, but it was a piece of cake.”

“Compared to learning Japanese, learning English was as easy as pie.

But you know what? Sadly, there are times when YOU CAN’T HAVE YOUR CAKE AND EAT IT TOO.

Yeah! You guessed right! This is another expression :)

When someone says “you can’t have your cake and eat it too” they mean that you can't have two incompatible things at the same time.

In other words, the cake cannot be eaten and saved for later.

Example:

“James works too hard to pay for that luxurious house. The irony here is that he never has any time to stay at home and enjoy it. I guess he can't have his cake and eat it too.”
