                                      The Greatest Cookbook

Is there anyone in the kitchens of America (0)______(B) has never heard of Gourmet? Gourmet
magazine has been the chronicler of American food trends ever since it (1)______ first published.
Now, 60 years after the first issue came out, more than 1,200 of the magazine’s recipes have been
revised for modern kitchens in the newly-published The Gourmet Cookbook.

If you (2)______ to lift it, you would find that it is a weighty book: 2.3 kilograms and 1,056 pages.
According to the editor, Ruth Reichl, it is intended to be ―a book that wants to live in your kitchen.‖
For the most part it succeeds: this is the sort of cookbook you want by your side, (3)______ you are
attempting to make simple things like cucumber sandwiches or complicated stuff like coq au vin. (If
only I had the courage to try and make the (4)______ dish once!)

Every chapter is full of valuable tips from Gourmet’s eight test kitchens. They include advice on
(5)______ matters as how to store food properly (never refrigerate tomatoes, for instance,
(6)______ it makes them mealy1 and kills the (7)______ ), when to use which kind of rice and how
to remove fish skins (a paper towel and a sharp knife work best.)
Reichl and her team spent a year (8)______ 50,000 recipes, which were retested and updated.
Some were even rejected (9)______ health concerns or changing tastes. The apricot soufflé, one of
Gourmet’s early desserts, (10)______ the taste test until someone realized that the original recipe
used dried apricots from California, not the Turkish ones that are more common today. A 1950s
recipe for a Hawaiian chicken (11)______ called niu moa ai that began ”remove the tops of six
small, fresh coconuts” was dropped because it was considered too time consuming for
contemporary (12)______. Still, all the recipes that got into the book will (13)______ you to
recreate classics like Beef Wellington or more modern culinary delights like salmon with rich
yellow sauce.
There is, however, one disappointment: although it comes from a magazine famous for its photos,
The Gourmet Cookbook (14)______ no photographs. (15)______, the book is illustrated with
detailed drawings that explain everything. It’s up to you to provide the mouthwatering visuals.

                                  'Dracula's Castle' Up for Sale

Első szöveg:
                                        Homes and Holidays

         "The palace?" my mother asked with excitement. "We're going to stay at the palace?"
         "I suppose so," I replied. In booking my annual holiday in India this year, I had decided on a
change from the usual round of visits to friends and relatives. My mother, my sons and I would
instead play tourist in our native Kerala—and check into the classy resorts that have recently
appeared around the state. I wondered how the place I knew as a kid had become India's No. 1
tourist destination.
         My parents were born in villages around Kerala. They moved away as teenagers, which
meant they kept having to go back to visit. So when my sisters and I were growing up, whether in
Bombay or abroad, we always knew where we'd spend our annual family holidays — not in some
exotic locale like London or the Caribbean but back "home" in rural Kerala. There we'd grumble
about the sadness of village life, the lack of other youngsters, the annoying mosquitoes. "This
annual migration," I told my father when I was 13, "is for the birds."
         Yet as adults we did the same. My sisters and I each winter round up our American-reared
children, fly over the ocean, and head for Kerala, rather self-consciously "renewing our roots" and
teaching the new generation some sense of belonging.
         This time, however, as we visited our 200-year-old ancestral home in a seemingly timeless
village, it was Kerala itself that had changed. Tourism promoters have lately realized the region's
exceptional beauty - lush green fields, mild winters, golden beaches. Since then travelers have come
         I worked out our itinerary: five top-class resorts in 15 days. My mother couldn't believe it
when I told her. "The palace!"
         "What's the big deal?" I asked. "Tourists in that area have been staying in converted palaces
for decades. It's the one thing palaces are good for in our democratic age - serving as hotels."
         "You don't understand," Mother replied. "This is Kovilakom Palace in Kollengode."
         Then I realized. Kollengode, a tiny town miles from any place, was where she was born.
"When I was a little girl, I used to walk along the outer walls of the palace every day on my way to
school," she said. "It looked so huge, so forbidding. It was unimaginable that I could even step into
it, or stay there. Visitors were not allowed inside. And now we're going to stay there?"
         "Four nights," I said.

        And so it happened. A few weeks ago my mother woke up in a royal bedroom and had her
breakfast there. Just down the road, our ancestral village slumbered on, as farmers plowed the fields
as their ancestors had done for centuries.
        I smiled at my mother when she returned from an hourlong massage, which was meant to
ease her backache. "Welcome home," I said.

I’m an English teacher working in Russia, and for some reason I really can’t stand that classroom
topic – ―Talk About Your Family‖. Perhaps it’s because everyone studied English from the same
book at school. So all the students say, ―My family consists of five members. Me, my mother, my
father, my brother and my dog…‖ And so on. As if all families are exactly the same.

It’s such a shame, because our families are unique. All families have their stories, their dramas,
their private jokes, nicknames and phrases. They’re the place where our personalities were made.
How often have you heard someone with young children complain ―Oh no, I think I’m turning into
my parents…‖?

The other day I found myself turning into one of my grandparents. I was trying to get my two-year-
old daughter to eat her dinner and I said ―That’ll make your hair curl.‖ Now, I don’t think that green
vegetables give you curly hair, or even that curly hair is a great thing to have. It’s just a phrase I
heard from my Granddad a hundred times when I was small. It had stayed in my mind, half-
forgotten, until the time I could use it myself.

Families are the most exotic things on earth. If you dig enough in your own family, you’re sure to
come up with all the stuff you could want for a great novel. Surprising characters, dramatic or funny
stories passed down for generations, or a face from the past you recognise – maybe in your own.

My mother started tracing our family tree a few years ago, not expecting to get far. But, digging in
old records and libraries, she got back three hundred years. She turned up old stories and a few

       társalKODÓ vizsgarendszer ANGOL NYELV -        KÖZÉPFOKÚ ÍRÁSBELI FELADATSOR

mysteries. What happened to the big family farm? Where did the family fortune go in the 1870s?
More to the point – where is it now?

I’m the traveller in my family, and I like to think I got it from a great-grandfather on my Dad’s side.
He was an adventurous soul. My two favourite family heirlooms are a photo of him on a horse in a
desert landscape (1897 in Patagonia) and a postcard home from Portugal complaining that his boat
was late because of the Revolution in Lisbon. ―Dreadful business, they seem to have arrested the
King...‖ he says. If you look at your family, you open a window on the past.

Start someone talking about their family stories and they might never stop. You’ll find the whole
history of your country there, too. When my mother asked me for a few names from my Russian
wife’s family, my wife got on the phone to her own mother, just to check a name or two. But they
were still talking an hour later, and she filled 5 pages of A4 paper. And so I was introduced to:
someone who lived through the siege of Leningrad (but forgot how to read in the process), a high
official in the Communist Party, and some rich relations who used to go to Switzerland for their
holidays before the Revolution. There was also a black sheep of the family who left his wife and
children and disappeared in the Civil War. All these people seemed impossibly exotic to me.

   1. According to the text, the writer …
         a. enjoys it when students talk about their families.
         b. is entertained by family stories.
         c. is not much interested in family fortune.

         c. is Russian.

         c. thinks his mother-in-law is losing her memory.

   4. The writer’s family …
         a. used to be rich.
         b. have all travelled a lot.
         c. can be traced back for two centuries.

   5. His wife’s family included …
         a. some Swiss relatives.
         b. everyone’s favourite, who was lost in a war.
         c. an important politician.

   6. The writer mentions some historical events in …
         a. Switzerland.
         b. Portugal.
         c. England.

―Cell phones. They're only about 20 years old. But we've become so addicted to them that the government is
trying to control their "dangerous" use and the industry is concerned about "discourtesies" that cell phones
breed. This month the state of New Jersey banned the use of hand-held cell phones while driving because of
the "danger." New York State passed a similar law two years ago. This week a major wireless phone supplier
released a nationwide survey showing 80 percent of cell phoners consider users more "discourteous" now
than five years ago.‖                                                                        Florida Today

Write a FORMAL LETTER TO THE EDITOR of the magazine in which you

 discuss the advantages of owning cell phones;

―There are a lot of people in Chicago who don’t care about the final disposition of stray and unwanted
animals because they believe there's little they can do to help solve the problem. However, for example, they
could volunteer at Chicago Animal Care and Control to help socialize animals, keep them healthy and happy
and therefore more adoptable.‖

"My eight-year-old daughter, my eleven-year-old son, and I were watching our favourite series last night at

disgusting, bad language commercial. We were shocked to hear the character say several swearwords and
emphasize that being a man meant you had to do a lot of drinking. Why does the TV channel feel that this is
appropriate language to play during prime time while our children are watching otherwise appropriate
