  • Fish Soup with Pebbles卵石鲜鱼汤According to legend, the famous Blang dish, Fish Soup with Pebbles, was created by some Blang fishermen in the wild. The story goes that, everyday Blang fishermen had to travel a long distance to catch fish in the river far away. After catching the fish, the fishermen, usually so hungry for food, would cook the fish beside the river with extremely limited ingredients—the fresh fish just caught and a bit of salt they carried. They dug a pit on the bank and laid several layers of Japanese banana leaves over the bottom, using it as a pot. After filling it with water, they put the fish inside and began to cook the fish soup, with the water heated not by fire, but by the hot-burnt pebbles they put one by one between the leaves. Before long the redolence mixed with the flavor of the fish soup and roasted pebbles prevailed along the river. Magically, the soup was no less palatable even cooked without using a pot or other common ingredients such as edible oil, onion, ginger or garlic, etc.布朗族名菜“卵石鲜鱼汤”,相传是渔民在野外抓到鱼后,又馋又饿,除了当场捉到的活鱼和随身携带的一点盐巴外,他们不用任何佐料。只要在沙滩上刨一个坑,在坑内铺上几层芭蕉叶代替铁锅,然后装上清水和鲜鱼,将河中卵石取来放在火塘内烧红,再将烧红的卵石一个接一个地投入装有清水和鲜鱼的芭蕉叶内,于是不用锅不用油的鲜鱼汤便这样烧成了。这种鱼汤味道鲜,而且有烧石的香味。 /201505/377236
  • B that looks just like watermelon has become the hottest food in Taiwan.目前,台湾最火的食物是一种长得像西瓜的面包。Jimmy#39;s Bakery, inYilanCounty, is selling loaves of the vibrant green, pink and black #39;watermelon toast#39;.台湾宜兰县的占美饼店可以买到这种颜色鲜活、汇集了绿色、粉色和黑色的“西瓜吐司面包”。Hundreds of customers have started lining up every day to get their hands on a prized loaf.每天都有数百人在店前排队想要亲见如此少见的面包。The b - which tastes nothing like watermelon - is made with charcoal, green tea and strawberry food colouring to create the bright colours of the seeds, rind and flesh.西瓜面包由炭黑色素、绿茶以及草莓食用色素制成,三种颜色分别担当西瓜子、瓜皮和瓜瓤的角色,吃起来自然不会有西瓜味。The b is also sold with yellow #39;flesh#39;.该面包还有黄色瓜瓤系列。A YouTube showing how the bizarre b can be created at home reveals that it can taste like chocolate, strawberry or green tea.一段教授如何在家自制西瓜面包的视频指出,这种面包可以做出巧克力、草莓或者绿茶等不同口味。Hundreds of fans have uploaded snaps of the snack to social media, with one Instagram user saying they had driven two hours just to sample the b.数百名粉丝已经将这种面包拍照后上传至社交网站,一位Instagram用户表示,为了亲口尝一尝西瓜面包甚至驱车两小时前往该店。Other social media shots show the small store with a crowd of eager customers snaking out on to the street.社交网站上还有照片显示,在这家小店门口等待买面包的人已经排成了长龙。A crowd controller can be seen monitoring the queue as they wait to purchase the Watermelon Toast.面包店门口还有一位专门维持排队秩序的人。The bakery, which sells the unusual snack by the loaf or sliced and toasted, makes approximately 100 loaves per day.这家面包店每天大约烤制100条西瓜面包,可以整块购买,也可以买切片或吐司系列。Bakery owner Lee Wen-fa reportedly created the colourful treat to appeal to children who had lost their appetite in the hot summer months.据称,面包店老板最初烤制这种面包是为了让小朋友在夏天食欲减退的时候重拾胃口。The square loaves resemble the square watermelons that became a novelty must-have item in Japan, selling for 0 each.这方方正正的西瓜面包看上去像极了曾经在日本热销的方形西瓜,这种西瓜当时售价为每个100美元。 /201507/384056
  • If there#39;s a single identifiable moment when Jewish Christmas—the annual American tradition where Jews overindulge on Chinese food on December 25—transitioned from kitsch into codified custom, it was during Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan#39;s 2010 confirmation hearing.如果有什么标志性的时刻来表明犹太人的圣诞节——这是一种年度性的美国传统,美国犹太人会在12月25号这天大吃特吃中国食物——从低级趣味转变成一个既定的传统的话,那这个时刻就非大法官艾蕾娜·卡根2010年的一次审议听会莫属了。During an otherwise tense series of exchanges, Senator Lindsey Graham paused to ask Kagan where she had spent theprevious Christmas. To great laughter, she replied: ;You know, like allJews, I was probably at a Chinese restaurant.;在这次看似紧张的听会上,参议员Lindsey Graham询问卡根她是怎么庆祝前一年的圣诞节的。她的回答是:“你知道,像所有犹太人一样,我可能在一家中国餐馆里吃中餐。”她的回答引起了人们的大笑。Never willing to let a moment pass without remark, Senator Chuck Schumer jumped in to explain,;If I might, no other restaurants are open.;而从来不会让一个时刻留有空白的参议员Chuck Schumer则马上解释道,“如果是我,我也会这么干,因为其他餐馆都没开。”And so goes the story of Jewish Christmasin a tiny capsule. For many Jewish Americans, the night before Christmasconjures up visions, not of sugar plums, but plum sauce slathered over roastduck or an overstocked plate of beef lo mein, a platter of General Tso#39;s, and(maybe) some hot and sour soup.所以小空间里的犹太人圣诞节就是这样展开的。对于许多美国犹太人来说,圣诞夜让人充满了想象,并不是想象小糖果,而是撒上梅子浆的烤鸭亦或满满一盘的牛肉捞面,一盘左宗棠鸡,以及或许还有一些热酸汤。But Schumer#39;s declaration that Jews and Chinese food are as much a match of necessity as sweet and sour are, is onlyhalf the wonton. The circumstances that birthed Jewish Christmas are also deeply historical, sociological, and religious.但是Schumer认为犹太人和中国食物的搭配就好比酸甜的搭配,这种看法其实只对了一半。犹太人圣诞节期间之所以会吃中国食物,这其实还有历史、社会学和宗教方面的原因。The story begins during the halcyon days of the Lower East Side where, as Jennifer 8. Lee, the producer of The Search for General Tso,said, ;Jews and Chinese were the two largest non-Christian immigrant groups; atthe turn of the century.这个故事还要从下东区(纽约市曼哈顿区沿东河南端一带,犹太移民聚居地)的平静的日子里开始说起,来自这里的Jennifer 8. Lee(她是《寻找左宗棠鸡》的制作人)说,“世纪之交之时,犹太人和中国人是两最大的非基督徒移民团体”。So while it#39;s true that Chinese restaurants were notably open on Sundays and during holidays when other restaurants wouldbe closed, the two groups were linked not only by proximity, but by otherness.Jewish affinity for Chinese food ;reveals a lot about immigration history and what it#39;s like to be outsiders,; she explained.中国餐馆确实在周天或者假期的时候还开着,而其他餐馆一般都是关门。中国人和犹太人不仅是因为靠近而产生联系,还因为二者之间的差异性而产生联系。犹太人对中国食物的喜爱“披露了有关移民历史的很多内容以及作为局外人是怎样的一种感受,”她解释道。Estimates of the surging Jewish population of New York City run from 400,000in 1899 to about a million by 1910 (or roughly a quarter of the city#39;s population). And, assome Jews began to assimilate into American life, they not only found acceptance at Chinese restaurants, but also easy passage into the world beyond Kosher food.据估计,在纽约的犹太人口从1899年的40万上升到1910年的大约100万(或者说纽约市总人口的将近四分之一)。随着一些犹太人开始融入美国生活,他们不仅发现自己可以在中国餐馆里受到认可和接纳,而且还能在中餐馆里轻易的吃到犹太食品以外的其他食物。;Chinese restaurants were the easiest placeto trick yourself into thinking you were eating Kosher food,; EdSchonfeld, the owner of RedFarm, one of the most laureled Chineserestaurants in New York, said. Indeed, it was something of a perfect match.Jewish law famously prohibits the mixing of milk and meat just as Chinese foodtraditionally excludes dairy from its dishes. Lee added:“在中国餐馆里,你会非常容易的以为自己吃的就是犹太食物(符合犹太教教规的食物),”RedFarm的所有者Ed Schonfeld如是说,这是纽约最著名的中餐馆之一。二者之间在某种程度上确实是天作之合。众所周知,犹太律法是禁止把奶制品和肉类放在一起的,而中国食物传统上也不包含奶制品。Jennifer 8. Lee补充道:If you look at the two other main ethniccuisines in America, which are Italian and Mexican, both of those combine milkand meat to a significant extent. Chinese food allowed Jews to eat foreigncuisines in a safe way.如果你看看美国另外两个主要的少数族裔餐饮,即意大利和墨西哥,你会发现他们会把牛奶和肉放在一起。而犹太人在吃中国食物时,既能吃到异国风情的食物,又不用担心这些食物是否符合犹太教规。And so, for Jews, the chop suey palaces anddumpling parlors of the Lower East Side and Chinatown gave the illusion ofreligious accordance, even if there was still treifgalore in the form of pork and shellfish. Nevertheless, it#39;s more than a curiositythat a narrow culinary phenomenon that started over a century ago managed togrow into a national ritual that is both specifically American andcharacteristically Jewish.所以,对于犹太人来说,纽约下东区和唐人街里的(美式中国菜)炒杂烩菜和饺子店给他们一种宗教和谐之感的幻觉,尽管不符合犹太教规的食物也会以猪肉和壳类海鲜的形式出现。无论如何,100年前的一个小小的烹饪现象演变成了如今的一个全国性的节日,即犹太人的圣诞节——这是美国人的,更是犹太人的。;Clearly this whole thing with Chinese foodand Jewish people has evolved,; Schoenfeld said. ;There#39;s no question.Christmas was always a good day for Chinese restaurants, but in recent years,it#39;s become the ultimate day of business.;“显然,中国食物和犹太人之间的关系在不断的演变着,”Ed Schonfeld说。“毫无疑问,一直以来圣诞节对中国餐馆来说都是个好日子,但是最近几年,从根本上变成了一个商业日。”But there#39;s more to it than that. Ask a foodpurist about American Chinese food and you#39;ll get a pu-pu platter ofhostilerhetoric about its inauthenticity. Driving the point home, earlier this week,CBS reportedon two Americans who opened a restaurant in Shanghai that featuresAmerican-style Chinese dishes like orange chicken, pork egg rolls, and, yes,the beloved General Tso#39;s, all of which don#39;t exist in traditional Chinesecuisine. The restaurant gets it name from another singular upshot ofChinese-American fusion: Fortune Cookie.不仅如此。如果你问一个食物纯粹主义者有关美式中国食物到底怎样,他可能会抱怨说美式中国食物的不正宗。还有,本周早些时候,哥伦比亚广播公司对两名在上海开了一家餐馆的美国人进行了报道,这家餐馆主营美式的中国食物,包括香橙鸡,猪肉蛋卷,以及受人喜爱的左宗棠鸡,在传统的中国菜肴中,这些菜都是没有的。餐馆的名字也非常具有中美融合的特色:福饼。Schoenfeld, whose restaurant features anegg roll made with pastrami from Katz#39;s Deli, shrugs off the idea thatAmericanized Chinese food is somehow an affront to cultural virtue. ;Adaptationhas been a signature part of the Chinese food experience,; he said. ;If youwent to Italy, you#39;d see a Chinese restaurant trying to make an Italiancustomer happy.;Schoenfeld店里的特色菜是鸡蛋卷五香烟熏牛肉,五香烟熏牛肉来自著名的Katz#39;s Deli,他认为美式中国食物并非是对文化美德的侵犯。“适应当地是中国食物历史中的重要组成部分,”他说。“如果你去意大利,你就会看到那里的中国餐馆也在尽量的让自己的客人满意。;I would argue that Chinese food isthe ethnic cuisine of American Jews.;“我想说的是中国食物是美国犹太人的民族风情美食。”That particular mutability has a meaningfullink to the Jewish experience, the rituals of which were largely forged inexile. During the First and Second Temple eras, Jewish practice centered around templelife in Jerusalem. Featuring a monarchy and a high priesthood, it bears littleresemblance to Jewish life of today with its rabbis and synagogues.这种特别的易变性和犹太经验之间有一种意味深长的关联,犹太经验的仪式大部分是在流放中形成的。在第一和第二圣殿期间,犹太人的实践主要以耶路撒冷的圣殿生活为中心。在一个君主政体和一个大祭司的显著特点下,以前的犹太人生活与如今的具备拉比和犹太教会堂的犹太人生活几乎没有共同点。So could it be that Chinese food is amanifestation of Jewish life in America? Lee seems to think so. “I would arguethat Chinese food is the ethnic cuisine of American Jews. That, in fact, theyidentify with it more than they do gefilte fish or all kinds of the EasternEurope dishes of yore.”所以,中国食物是如今美国犹太人生活的一种表现?至少Lee是这么认为的。“我想说的是中国食物是美国犹太人的民族风情美食。对于犹太人来说,中国食物比鱼丸冻或者所有其他的东欧饮食都更受到他们的认同。Over the centuries, different religiouscustoms have sprung up and new spiritual rituals have taken root, many of whichdraw on the past. Jewish Christmas, in many ways, could very much be seen as amodern affirmation of faith. After all, there are few days that remind AmericanJews of their Jewishness more than Christmas in the ed States.几个世纪以来,不同的宗教风俗如雨后春笋般涌现,而新的精神仪式已经扎根,其中很多以过去为基础。从许多方面看,可以将犹太人的圣诞节看成是对信仰的现代性肯定。毕竟,在美国,很少有其他日子能像圣诞节那样让美国犹太人想起自己所具备的犹太性了。 /201412/350446

  • Sometimes in the thick of a messy and awkward prenuptial agreement negotiation, Laura A. Wasser, a Los Angeles-based family lawyer, reminds her clients: “This is not someone you got into a fender bender with. This is someone you want to spend your life with.” So be nice, for starters. Wasser pushes clients to sign all the paperwork at least a month before the wedding, but she suggests broaching the subject much earlier. “Sit down to talk with a good bottle of wine, but don’t drink so much that you end up drunk and fighting,” she says. “Bring it up when things are good, not when you’re bickering.”有时,在一场混乱而尴尬的婚前协议谈判进行到最激烈的阶段,洛杉矶的家庭事务律师劳拉·A·瓦塞尔(Laura A. Wasser)会提醒客户:“对方不是与你发生车祸纠纷的人,而是你想要共度一生的人。”所以,首先要友善。瓦塞尔强烈建议客户在婚礼的至少一个月之前签署所有的文件,而开始讨论这个话题的时间更应早得多。“坐下来伴着一瓶上好的葡萄酒来谈,但别喝太多,免得最后喝醉了争吵起来,”她说。“在气氛愉快的时候提出这个话题,不要在发生口角的时候提。”If the idea of a prenup does not go over well, blame someone else: your parents or, if you have lawyers and business managers, your advisers. Before you hire a lawyer, though, learn about your state’s marriage and divorce laws. “It is amazing how many people go into the contract of marriage — and it is a contract — without knowing the terms,” she says.如果婚前协议的想法没有得到良好反馈,就把责任怪到别人头上:你的父母,或者,如果你有律师或业务经理人的话,也可以推到他们这些顾问身上。不过,在聘请律师之前,首先要了解你所在州的婚姻和离婚方面的法律。“有太多人不了解条款就缔结了婚姻的契约——这的确就是一份契约——这可真让人不可思议。”Keep your proposed arrangement simple. “You hear about prenups that say, ‘If you don’t lose the baby weight, I get to divorce you,’ or, ‘If you cheat on me, I get this much money,’#8201;” says Wasser, whose clients have included Angelina Jolie and Britney Spears. Her firm refuses to include so-called lifestyle clauses — curtailing visits from in-laws or how often you have sex — because they are largely unenforceable in court.让你提出的条件简单明了。“有的婚前协议甚至会说,‘如果你不减掉婴儿肥,我就跟你离婚,’或者‘如果你对我不忠,我就会获得多少钱,’”瓦瑟尔说。她的客户包括安吉丽娜·朱莉(Angelina Jolie)和布兰妮·斯皮尔斯(Britney Spears)。瓦瑟尔的律所拒绝在协议中纳入所谓的“生活方式条款”——比如限制亲家串门次数或是规定做爱的频率——因为这些在法庭上基本无法执行。Even if you and your betrothed are penniless or view prenuptial agreements as a sordid elevation of capital over love, all couples should make the time to talk about the big questions that prenups answer up front. “Who is paying for what? How much do you save? Are you going to go back to work after you have children? What happens when one of us dies?”即使你和未婚夫或未婚妻穷得身无分文,或者认为婚前协议是把金钱置于爱情之上的丑陋之举,所有的情侣也都应该花时间谈论婚前协议会直接解答的那些重要问题:“谁来负担哪些开销?存多少钱?女方生完孩子要继续工作吗?一方离世了该怎么办?” /201503/366456
  • A computer programme usually used to draw up e-fits of wanted criminals has been used to create the UK’s idea of what constitutes the most beautiful face in the world, for men and women.常被用来模拟绘制通缉犯的面部特征的计算机程序都已经被用于一个英国新创意:对男人和女人来说,什么样的脸才是最美的。The pictures are the result of a two month-long study led by Dr Chris Solomon, an expert in facial mapping, which asked people to put together a composite of the perfect face using the software used by the police. It takes into account factors including the thickness of the lips, nose length and width, and hairline.照片是由克里斯·所罗门士主导研究了两个月之久的结果,作为面部测绘专家,他让人们用警察使用的软件把所有完美的面部结构做一个复合。其需要的因素包括嘴唇的厚度,鼻子的长度和宽度,以及发际线。 左边的女人脸,总之就是娜塔莉·波特曼/艾米莉亚·克拉克的各种合集,而右边,大卫·贝克汉姆则是英国人心中的完美脸。The results were then judged by another 100 people, who rated them for attractiveness, allowing researchers to create composite pictures showing the archetypal faces of male and female beauty.之后的结果由另外的100个人来判定,这些人把面部结果认为是有魅力的,使研究者们得出一些展现男性和女性魅力原型的复合图片。Dr Solomon said the study, commissioned by Samsung, revealed “some interesting results about what Brits consider to be the epitome of beauty”.所罗门士对于委托给三星电子公司的这项研究,透露道:“布里茨所认为的美丽的特征得出了一些有意思的结果。”The academic said the study also threw up some differences between men’s and women’s perceptions of ideal beauty.学术研究会说这项研究还是突出了一些男性和女性审美观的区别。For the male face of beauty, women drew a more feminine face than men – women rate a softer jaw-line, slimmer face, fuller lips and clean-shaven look as the most attractive, compared to the more masculine appearance that is considered the most attractive by men.比起男性美,女性的脸更富有女性气质---女性的下巴曲线更柔和,脸型更瘦,嘴唇更丰满,也没有胡须,这样便是极好的,而相比之下的男性的阳刚的外表,却是最有吸引力的。Interestingly, for the female face of beauty women rated a sexier appearance as the more beautiful than their male counterparts – women perceived fuller lips, a slimmer face, larger eyes and higher cheekbones as the most beautiful, more so than the male population。有趣的是,和男性审美不同,美貌的女性认为,拥有性感外表的女性——丰满的嘴唇,纤瘦的脸型,大眼睛,高颧骨就是最漂亮的,比拥有同样五官特征的男性有魅力得多。 /201504/369045
