“饺子”这种中国传统食物，绝对符合雅思口语“traditional product”的要求，而且一提到这种食物，中国的孩子有太多可以讲。另外，只要把它跟新年联系到一起，答案里就不禁有了喜庆的色彩。虽然你可能会想，考官一听到the Spring Festival会不会想吐…… Well, so what?! 你没有跑题，语言质量OK，发音挑不出毛病，凭啥不给你高分！雅思官方的书籍都教育我们说，要挑自己熟悉的素材讲，而不是要费尽心思impress考官。
Well, I'm sure you've heard a lot about this traditional product I'm going to talk about, which is Jiaozi, AKA, dumlplings. They are really typical Chinese food.
They're made of pieces of dough wrapped around a filling. We have a variety of fillings, like pork, chicken and all kinds of vegetables. Dumplings are always made into the shape of a Yuanbao, which is a traditional Chinese form of money. So you see, it means wealth. And I guess that's why Chinese like to eat them during the Spring Festival, 'cause we believe it brings fortune and wealth. Speaking of eating dumplings during the Spring Festival, we actually have a pretty interesting tradition. On Chinese New Years Eve, when we are making dumplings, we would mix coins or peanuts into the filling, and the person who gets the dumpling with a coin or peanut inside, is believed to be lucky and healthy for the whole new year.
Oh, there are various cooking methods when we prepare dumplings, we can boil them, fry them, or steam them. They can create different textures. For example, steamed dumplings are pretty chewy, and boiled ones are really soft and smooth, and they are my grandma's favorite, 'cause she has lost most of her teeth. And fried dumplings are crisp. They are my favorite 'cause they are super palatable.
