Ask any Chinese students what do they miss about China? They will tell you---Chinese food!
Although US offers popular food worldwide, for Chinese students, all these pales in front of their native food. That's why even those who have never cooked before, started to feed themselves after arrival in this country.
Formula 1 You have to know how to cook
Can you bear with fast food every day? Can you milk delicious food from your friends all the time? Can you eat out every day for healthy and nutritious food without emptying your wallet?
If the answer is no, it is time for you to learn how to cook!
Formula 2 Cook with your Roommates
There are many ways that this can done.
a. One good at cooking can be responsible for prepare cuisines while one who seldom cooks can help with cleaning, chopping and other preparations.
I've tried this for about three months during my first year.
b.People can take turns to cook. Ex, A cooks on Mondays, B cooks on Tuesdays etc. This combination usually indicates that they are on similar level in terms of cooking. Of course, most common case is that they all cook amazing food.
I have a friend who lived in a big house with 4 other people, whether girls or boys, the food they prepare is equally marvelous.
These are fair for everyone. Cooperating on cooking nurtures your friendship as well.
Formula 3 Show off your cooking skill on the party
Living abroad，party is a necessary occasion for us to reunion. Speaking of party, here comes food. In US, it is popular that every one brings a cuisine or snack. Do you want to bring a dish you made yourself? Of course. Having fun at the party, you've also contributed while winning compliment and recognition from friends.
Finally, this may not be obvious in China，but will I tell you that in US, every Chinese likes boys/girls who cook amazing food？
