英国甜品

Now we are going to talk about British sweets. Americans call sugary foods candy. British people call sugary foods sweets.

现在,我们要谈谈英国的甜品。美国人把含糖的食物称为candy,英国人则将这类食物称为sweets。

My favourit British dessert is the trifle. One day, I will teach you how to make a trifle. It is delicious, sweet, and creamy. It has custard and cream and strawberries and jelly. Amazing.

我最喜欢的英国甜点是trifle。将来,我会教你如何制作一个trifle。它是美味的、甜甜的、如奶油般柔滑。Trifle里加了奶油冻,奶油、草莓还有果冻。味道很赞!

A note about jelly: in British English, jelly is a wobbly desert, often made out of strawberries. Americans call it jell-o. In American English, jelly is a paste that you spread on your toast. British call it jam. Confusing, I know. British people also have a different word for the American cookie. We call it a biscuit.

关于果冻的一点补充:在英式英语中,jelly是一种不稳定的甜品,通常都是有草莓做成。美国人称之为jell-o。在美式英语中,jelly是你往土司上涂抹的果酱。英国人叫jam。我知道这有点令人困惑。对于美式英语中的cookie,英国人也由一个不同的词汇,我们称为biscuit。

Sweet tooth: this is one of my favourite phrases. If you have a sweet tooth it means that you like sweet things, like chocolate.

Sweet tooth:这是我最喜欢的短语之一。如果说你有一个sweet tooth,这意味着你嗜好甜食,就像巧克力。

E.g. “I'm finding it really hard to stay on this diet. I wish I didn't have such a sweet tooth. I love chocolate so much.”

例如:我发现节食真的是一件很难的事情。我多希望我没有爱吃甜食的习惯。我太爱吃巧克力了。

A great traditional British sweet is the scone. It is a cake with currants – which are like raisins. They are served with strawberry jam and clotted cream. They taste absolutely gorgeous. They are usually served with a cup of tea too. It is a mouth-watering experience.

另一个传统的英式甜品是scone(司康)。它是一种嵌着currant(葡萄干)的蛋糕-----就跟raisin(葡萄干的一种)一样。它们通常和草莓酱还有浓缩奶油搭配食用,味道棒极了。另外,司康和红茶也常常一起搭配享用。这是一个令人垂涎的体验。

More-ish: how else can you say that something is delicious, tasty, or addictive? Well, there are plenty of ways, but my favourite is more-ish. If a food is more-ish, it means that you want to eat more of it. Easy, right? I think chocolate chip cookies are incredibly more-ish.

More-ish:你还能如何形容一些食物是美味的、可口的或让人上瘾的?恩,这儿还有很多方法,但我最喜欢的用法是more-ish。如果说一种食物是more-ish,这意味着你还想要再吃点。很简单,对吗?我觉得巧克力曲奇饼就很神奇地令人不停地想要吃下去。
