英文中与人名相关的食物

英文中与人名相关的食物

“东坡肉”、“麻婆豆腐”、“宫保鸡丁”, 听到这些食物我们就想到苏东坡,陈麻婆,丁宝桢。 其实与人名相关的食物并不只在中文里出现哦~ Pavlova:帕夫洛娃(蛋白奶油水果蛋糕) “pavlova”是一种由酥皮、鲜奶油和水果制作的甜点,起源于澳大利亚和新西兰。这种甜点是以俄国芭蕾舞舞蹈家 Anna Pavlova(安娜·帕夫洛娃)的名字来命名的,1926年帕夫洛娃在澳大利亚与新西兰巡演之后这种命名就出现了。很多人认为安娜·帕夫洛娃是历史上最伟大的芭蕾舞舞蹈家,人们会在每年的1月31日(这是旧式日期算法;按照格里高里历,她实际的生日应该是2月12日)庆祝她的生辰。几十年以来,澳大利亚与新西兰两个国家一直在争论 Pavlova 的真正起源,《牛津英语大辞典》(OED)对“pavlova”的首条引用来自新西兰的资源: dissolve all but teaspoonful of Gelatine in the hot water, and all the suger except adessertspoonful. 但上述表述仍无法解决 pavlova 的起源之谜,因此,《牛津英语大辞典》指出 pavlova 有两个起源:澳大利亚与新西兰。   beef Wellington:惠灵顿牛肉 惠灵顿牛肉是典型的英式主餐,在传统星期日午餐中很受欢迎。现存多种理论支持它的命名来源,其中最流行的一种看法认为 beef Wellington 是以 Arthur Wellesley 命名的。Arthur Wellesley 是第一位惠灵顿公爵,因其特别喜爱这种由牛肉、块菌、蘑菇、马德拉酒、香肠烹制的菜品而得名。但这并不能充分说明 Arthur Wellesley 公爵与这道菜品有着特别密切的关系,且还存在一种可能,那就是 beef Wellington 是由一位英国厨师命名的,这位英国厨师想给法国肉片 de bœuf en croûte 一个更为英语化的名字——于是,便出现了 beef Wellington。 上述两个命名来源故事的真实性我们无从考证,但有一点我们可以确定:威灵顿公爵给一种重要的英国服装类物品的命名带来了灵感,这种物品就是——wellington boot(惠灵顿雨靴)。   Sandwich:三明治 三明治据说是以 John Montagu 命名的,他是 Sandwich 镇的第四位伯爵,据说这位伯爵嗜赌,曾有一次二十四个小时一直待在赌桌旁,中间除了几片面包片夹冷牛肉没有吃过任何其他东西,这种把火腿、蛋、菜夹在两片面包里吃的食物因伯爵得名,并被广为效仿。 因为 sandwich 广受欢迎,这一词很快有了很多种意思。例如,《牛津英语大辞典》就将“sandwich”定义为“中间涂有果酱或奶油的两片或更多片海绵蛋糕”,这也是英语中最初的一种使用方法,例如Victoria sandwich中就是这种意思。sandwich 还可以作为动词来使用,意思是“to be sandwiched between”某些东西与其他东西。   Lamington:莱明顿蛋糕(巧克力椰丝方块蛋糕) lamington 是对澳大利亚和新西兰而言又一特别的甜点;但是,对于 lamington 起源的争议却不像对于 pavlova…
