1. We're all used to the idea that there are simply four tastes. Our food can be sweet (like - sugar), sour (like lemons), salty (like salt, of course) and bitter (like olives). Now scientists have found that parts of the tongue react to a fifth taste, which they call 'umami: Umarni is quite a rich taste, found in red meat, soy sauce, mushrooms and hard cheese, such as Parmesan. The word 'umami' comes from Japanese.
2. One thing you have to remember is that meat can contain bacteria. You have to be particularly careful with white meats like chicken and pork. Make sure that you cook them properly. Use a metal skewer or a fork to test whether the meat is done or not. The juices from the meat should be clear. You should also be careful when preparing food. Use separate chopping boards for meat and vegetables. The reason for this is that we don't want any bacteria from the meat to find their way onto our vegetable . They might not be killed when we cook the vegetables.
3. Running a busy restaurant is a real challenge. A head chef has to be part army officer, part artist and part businessman. With so many people working in a busy kitchen, it's not easy to keep control and a head chef has to make sure that everyone does their job properly. At the same time, he oк she has to create great food without wasting ingredients. It takes years of training to become a head chef and not everyone can do it.
4. Walk into any bookshop or turn on your TV and you can't avoid celebrity chefs. They are famous for cooking and for teaching the nation how to cook. They each have their own style and their own fans, from the very friendly style of Jamie Oliver to the more formal style of Delia Smith. However, they all have one thing in common: they are all very good at communicating their enthusiasm and for cooking.
5. The thought of cooking for friends at home makes most of us a little nervous. It needn't be such a nightmare, though. The secret is planning. If you keep your menu simple and stick to dishes you know well, your dinner party will be a success. Give your guests something that is easy to prepare and that doesn't mean you have to be in the kitchen all the time. That way, you can enjoy the occasion too!
6. Traditionally, eating was something that we all did together as families. In the past most parents insisted that the whole family sat around the dining table at a certain time. All that has changed. These days, we're more likely to watch TV while we eat, or to eat at different times from the other members of our family. In a world where it's so easy to cook a microwave meal in seconds and both parents go out to work, it's very rare for families to share their news over a good meal.
7. What's the most essential ingredient in a great meal? In some ways, it's electricity. Imagine how different our cooking and eating habits would be if we didn't have a fridge to keep thing cold, a freezer to keep food frozen, an oven to bake and roast food in, a hob to boil and fry thing on, a blender to whisk and stir, and kettle to boil water. Some people even have electric carving knives to make their work in the kitchen easier.

Things weren't working out quite as Lazlo had expected. He'd been in London for six months now and all his early optimism had almost disappeared. None of the galleries were interested in his paintings and he was tired of carrying the same pictures from one buyer to the next. The response was always the same: a shake of the head, some comment about portraits not being fashionable these days and a suggestion to try somewhere else, usually somewhere he had already tried. He was beginning to lose hope and was thinking of going back home. It would be difficult, and he would have to face his parents saying 'I told you so', but at least he could find a steady job.
He was sitting on a bench in a park one day considering this when he noticed a newspaper beside him. He glanced at it and the word 'artist' caught his eye. He picked the paper up and read more closely. It was a job advertisement. An advertising company was looking for a portrait artist to work on a new advertising campaign. Lazlo ripped the advertisement out of the paper and started to look for a public phone. 'I won't be able to choose my subjects', Lazlo thought to himself, 'but at least I'll be able to pay the rent, and that's a bit more important right now'. He spotted a phone, put a few coins in and dialled. After a few moments, a female voice answered. Lazlo explained who he was and that he was applying for the job. They arranged for him to go to their office the next day with some of his work. He went home excited and nervous.
That night, he chose three paintings from the dozens in his flat that he thought showed what he was capable of. He selected a self-portrait he had done a few years before: he thought it showed a thoughtful side to his work. He also chose a portrait of an old man that he had met in a cafe. It was simple but clear, and Lazlo thought that maybe that was the style they would want for an advertising campaign. The third one was a painting of his mother. It had always seemed to him that that picture captured a lot of feeling that was difficult to put into words. A lot of people thought it was the best portrait he had ever done, and Lazlo knew that if anything was going to impress them, that painting would.
The next morning, he woke early and got ready. He rolled the pictures up, placed them in a large tube so that they wouldn't get damaged and set off towards the bus stop. There was a lot of traffic, but he arrived on time. When he got to the office, he saw that another four people were waiting, each with a large tube of paintings just like his. The secretary asked him to take a seat.
Lazlo sat and waited for his name to be called. He knew that a lot depended on the next half an hour or so. With a job, he could begin to sort out his life, maybe doing his art in his spare time. He knew he would never completely give up on his dream, but he had also come to realise that he had to live in the real world, and talent doesn't pay bills. Without a job, he wouldn't survive the month, he had just about enough for the ticket home. The secretary picked up the phone and had a short, quiet conversation. She tuzned to Lazlo.
'You can go in now' she said, smiling.
A15 When Lazlo first arrives in London, he
1) immediately loses his job.
2) is confident of success.
3) doesn't expect to stay for six months.
4) knows that he will have to work hard.
A16 The people at the art galleries Lazio visits
1) are very impressed by his work.
2) often give him helpful advice.
3) ask him to come back with different paintings.
4) tell him that his work is old-fashioned.
A17 It seems that Lazlo's parents
1) disapprove of his choice of career.
2) forced Lazlo into becoming an artist.
3) will be happy to welcome him home.
4) can help him to achieve his ambitions.
A18 Lazlo thinks the job will
1) give him more artistic freedom.
2) provide him with a salary.
3) mean that he has to move house.
4) stop him from studying.
A19 Lazlo chooses to take the portrait of his mother because
1) it was the third one he thought of.
2) it was used in an advertisement before.
3) the people at the company ask to see it.
4) it expresses emotion well.
A20 At the office, Lazio realises that
1) his paintings are the same as everyone else's.
2) he isn't the only person interested in the job.
3) he should have chosen different paintings.
4) he has come at the wrong time.
A21 One of the things Lazlo's experience has taught him is that
1) he needs money to live.
2) art is more important than money.
3) following your dream is a waste of time.
4) he has no artistic talent.

Advertisers and others interested in the make-up of society occasionally use the term 'Generation X' to describe a certain section of the population. There is no strict definition for the term, but it usually A22 ………………  to those people born between 1964 and 1981.
This is the generation whose parents were born at the end of or A23 ………………  the Second World War. In America and Europe, the 1960s was a decade of big dreams.

However, during the 1970s many people began to realise that things were much more complicated than that. Children A24………………  up in the 70s and 80s saw that their parents' ideals had failed. Divorce rates rose rapidly and many Generation Xers experienced the splitting up of their family. They blamed their parents for industrial, social and economic problems and had no ideals of their own to rely on.
Of course, this image of a Generation Xer is a stereotype. Not all people born into that generation are the same. However, it does seem possible to pick out a few characteristics that people born between those years might A25………………  .

Generation Xers are likely to have spent some time doing a low-paid job, such as working in a fast food restaurant, and may have had a number of different jobs.
