People used to say that British food was boring and bland (乏味的). Nowadays people in Britain have a world of food to choose from.
Travel around London and you'll find food from around the globe. You might come across restaurants and cafes serving foreign food from Armenia, Bangladesh, China, France, etc. Take a look on the Internet and you'll find even more, from Africa, South and Central America and the Pacific. Some restaurants mix different cuisines(烹饪)to create fusion(融合) food . It is similar across the rest of the UK, and growing.
It hasn't always been the case. Once upon a time, other Western Europeans described British food as boring and bland, too heavy and full of fat, with tasteless soups and puddings only the British could love. Sixty years ago, there were only four Indian restaurants in the UK. Now there are over 9,500. There were Italian restaurants in Britain in the nineteenth century but no real Chinese restaurant until the 1930s. The first Indian restaurant opened three hundred years ago.
So why did the British grow bored with their food? Firstly soldiers, administrators and planters who had worked overseas encouraged others to try out new food. In the 1970s, the British began to take holidays abroad and discovered new tastes. And at the same time, people from around the world settled in the UK to live and work, bringing food from home which attracted the British.
Traditionally, Britain 's national dish has always been fish and chips, but it is more exotic (异国风味)than that. Many people, including former Foreign Secretary Robin Cook, now consider chicken tikka masala the national dish. It contains chicken in creamy sauce, Indian style. You won't find it in India though-one story is that it was invented by an Indian chef in Glasgow in the 1930s. It has come to symbolize(象征)multicultural Britain and could be considered as an example of "fusion" food.
8. What is the main idea of Paragraph 2?
A. London is a multicultural global city.
B. It is easy for Londoners to travel to different countries.
C. Many restaurants in London belong to different countries.
D. People in Britain have different kinds of food to choose from.
9. Which of the following statement is true?
A. Indian cooking has a long history in the UK.
B. Western Europeans used to enjoy British food.
C. Four Indian restaurants opened in the UK three hundred years ago.
D. Real Chinese restaurant opened in the UK in the nineteenth century.
10. Which is not the reason why British People grew bored with their food?
A. British people working abroad encouraged others to try out new food.
B. Travel offered British people opportunities to change their diet.
C. Non-British people working in the UK brought food from their countries.
D. British food mainly contains fish and chips, which is boring and tasteless.
11. Why did Robin Cook consider chicken tikka masala the national dish?
