Advice on my essay about food

Hi everyone. I want to write a Common App essay about a special dish, but I'm unsure how I should write my essay to relate the dish to my personality and background. Can anyone please suggest some useful ideas to help me with the essay?

    Something has made you think of this idea which sounds unique and creative to me. What is that something? I'm guessing you are a pretty good writer to think like this so let your thoughts flow. You only have 650 words to turn words about a dish to eat into a picture that shows YOU! What about starting by brainstorming some adjectives? Make one column a list about the dish and the column next to it about you. Try writing down a word about the dish and then match it to a word about you.

    Good luck!

    Please do not write about food and its relation to your personality & background. This type of essay is very common and, typically, very superficial, among international applicants to US schools.

    If it isn't obvious to you how that dish relates to your personality and background then perhaps you should pick another topic for the essay.
