A friend of mine, who was born, raised, and still lives on Long Island, had asked me How do you like it? when I ate something she prepared. I always replied I like it. or It's very good. as if the question were Do you like it?
Is that what I was asked, or is How do you like it? different from Do you like it? or Do you enjoy it? in this context?
I am asking because, in Italian, we would ask the equivalent of Do you like it? The equivalent of How do you like it? wouldn't be an usual question, as we also tend to answer I like it very much. to Do you like it? when we like it very much.
