    delicious

    And the food were extremely delicious to everyone.

    I do not think we can use this word "delicious" like that. Can I correct it like this:

    Everyone liked the delicious food extremely. Or do you have anyother advice?

    Re: delicious

    Note also: "The food WAS..." not the "The food WERE..."
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
