Serving a Sunday feast
英国的周日大餐


THE smell of a roast dinner cooking slowly in the oven is unforgettable. Waiting for the wonderful meat to cook, it can be hard to remain patient. A delicious scent drifts through the kitchen, causing the stomachs of family and friends to rumble in expectation.   晚餐在烤炉中慢慢烘烤着,那种香味令人终生难忘。等待烹制大餐的时候总是急不可耐。厨房中香飘四溢,把家人和朋友们满是期待的肚子都惹得咕咕直叫。
  The Sunday roast has been a tradition in Britain for centuries. Sunday was known as the day of rest, when the shops were shut and businesses closed. Families would go to church and return home to eat together around the table.     几百年来,星期日大餐已经成为英国的一项传统。据说星期日是休息日,商店都关门停业。全家人会去教堂,然后回家围聚在餐桌旁一起进餐。
  Beef, chicken, pork or lamb are the traditional meats used for a roast dinner. Roast potatoes and vegetables are prepared to go with the meat: the choice depends on the season. Roast beef is the classic Sunday lunch and must be served with Yorkshire pudding. This strange-sounding food was named after a part of northern England where it was first created. It is made from batter - a mixture of flour, water, milk and eggs - and served with gravy. Roast chicken is often served with sausages which have been wrapped in bacon. They're called pigs-in-blankets!     牛肉、鸡肉、猪肉或羊肉是用来烘烤大餐的传统肉食。烤土豆和蔬菜则是肉食的必备:因四季而变。烤牛肉是传统的星期日午餐食品,必须和约克郡布丁一起进食。这种名字奇怪的食物以它在英格兰北部的一处起源之地命名。它是用面糊做的——用面粉、水、牛奶和鸡蛋混合而成——加上肉汁一起进食。烤鸡肉通常配上包裹在熏肉中的香肠。它们竟然叫做毯包猪肉!
  Nowadays it's feared the traditional family Sunday is in decline. Fewer people go to church, shops are open all weekend and families often live far apart. Many had predicted the decline of the Sunday roast dinner. But Tescos, a British supermarket chain, reported more young people buying joints of meat than ever before. It seems young people who move to big cities like London, create their own traditions and build a family of friends to invite for lunch on a Sunday. For many, it's the only day when they have time to cook and relax.     如今人们担心传统的家庭星期日大餐正在消失。去教堂的人越来越少,商店整周都开着,一家人通常都分开住离得很远。很多人预言星期日大餐会消逝。可是据英国的超市连锁店Tescos提供的信息,买大块肉的年轻人越来越多。移居到伦敦等大城市的年轻人似乎创造出了他们自己的传统,在星期日邀请他们的一帮朋友去家里吃午饭。对很多人来说,这是他们唯一有时间休息做饭的一天。
