中翻英~急(20點)

美國人開始對中國食物感興趣可以追溯到19世紀末,當時有上千名中國工人被帶到美國。今天你可以在美國各地找到美味又不貴的中國餐,中國菜已經成為美國人探索和瞭解異國文化的一個重要依據。

*中國菜中西合璧富有特色*

美國的第一家中國餐館是為了服務巡迴各地的中國工人,他們大多是在19世紀中期來到美國西岸幫助建造鐵路或者挖金礦的。很快地,美國人開始對中國食物感到好奇,嚐試了它的滋味,而中國餐館老闆也勤奮工作,提供既有異國風味、又有美國特色的中國菜,有時候甚至創造全新的中國菜色。

辛西婭 李是紐約市美洲華人博物館的館長,她說,炒**就是一個很好的例子:“對美國人來說,這是一個全新的口味,把切的細細碎碎的肉和蔬菜放在一起,讓你根本看不出來是甚麼,然後放在米飯上面。紐約人覺得這道菜很有異國風味,很獨特,很有意思,讓人很想嚐試,也讓他們覺得自己很高級,因為他們在嚐試這種有異國風味的菜。”

但與此同時,這些菜色的材料都是美國人熟悉的,像白菜和蘑菇,只不過料理的方法不同。

辛西婭 李說“這種以改革創新的方式、把相同或不同的材料放在一起的做法就某種程度來說是一種新的、美國式的做法。”

    American's interest in Chinese food began in the late 19th century, when many thousands of Chinese workers were brought to the United States. Today, the cuisine can be found in savory and affordable abundance almost everywhere in the country. Over the years, this has become a recipe for cross-cultural exploration and understanding.

    The nation's first Chinese restaurants catered to itinerant Chinese workers who came to the West Coast in the mid-1800s to help build the railroads and work in the gold mines. Before long, the native population became curious and sampled the fare… and Chinese restaurateurs worked hard to serve food that seemed both exotic and familiar. Sometimes entirely new recipes were created.

    Cynthia Lee, a curator at the Museum of Chinese in the Americas in New York City, says that the food Americans call "chop suey" is a prime example of this inventiveness. "Chop suey was a very new taste for Americans, putting bits and pieces of meat and vegetables together so that you don't really know what it is and then putting it over rice." Considered exotic by New Yorkers, Ms. Lee says chop suey was "something desirable, something unique and interesting and something that made them feel a little sophisticated."

    And yet, at the same time the dishes used familiar ingredients like cabbage and mushrooms, just in a different way.

    "That idea of taking disparate parts, throwing it together in a new way is quintessentially American," says Ms. Lee.
