    Food festivals around the world

    Stilton Cheese Rolling

    May Day is a traditional day for celebrations, but the 2,000 English villagers of Stilton must be the only people in the world who include cheese rolling in their annual plans. Teams of four, dressed in a variety of strange and funny clothes, roll a complete cheese along a 50-metre course. On the way, they must not kick or throw their cheese, or go into their competitors’ lane(赛道).Competition is fierce and the chief prize is a complete Stilton cheese weighing about four kilos (disappointingly, but understandably the cheeses used in the race are wooden ones).All the competitors are served with beer or port wine, the traditional accompaniment for Stilton cheese.

    Fiery Foods Festival—The Hottest Festival on Earth

    Every year more than 10,000 people head for the city of Albuquerque, New Mexico. They come from as far away as Australia, the Caribbean and China, but they all share a common addiction—food that is not just spicy(辛辣),but hot enough to make your mouth burn, your head spin and your eyes water. Their destination is the Fiery Food and BBQ Festival which is held over a period of three days every March. You might like to try a chocolate-covered habanero pepper—officially the hottest pepper in the world—or any one of the thousands of products that are on show. But one thing’s for sure—if you don’t like the feeling of a burning tongue, this festival isn’t for you!

    La Tomatina—The World’s Biggest Food Fight

    On the last Wednesday of every August, the Spanish town of Bunol hosts La Tomatina—the world’s largest food fight. A week-long celebration leads up to an exciting tomato battle as the highlight of the week’s events. The early morning sees the arrival of large trucks with tomatoes—official fight-starters get things going by casting tomatoes at the crowd.

    The battle lasts little more than half an hour, in which time around 50,000 kilograms of tomatoes have been thrown at anyone or anything that moves, runs, or fights back. Then everyone heads down to the river to make friends again—and for a much-needed wash!

    30. In the Stilton cheese rolling competition, competitors on each team must    

     A. wear various formal clothes                     B. roll a wooden cheese in their own lane

     C. kick or throw their cheese                       D. use a real cheese weighing about four kilos

    31. Where is the Fiery Food and BBQ Festival held?

     A. three days       B. seven days    C. less than three days D. more than seven days

    Gold fever

        In 1848, when gold was discovered in California, John Sutter was already one of the wealthiest people in America.  34    Sutter built a fort (要塞) there, and soon he had 12,000 head of cattle () and hundreds of workers.

        By the mid-1840s, more and more Americans were coming to California.  35  He saw them as part of his new kingdom (王国). However, he had no idea that this would destroy his dream some day.

        At the beginning of 1848, Sutter sent James Marshall and about twenty men to the American River to build a sawmill.  36  Later he wrote, “I reached my hand down and picked it up; it made my heart beat fast, for I was certain it was gold.”

        37    Hundreds of thousands of people, almost all of them men, began to prepare for the journey west. They said their goodbyes and tried to take a chance on gold: a year of pain in return for a lifetime of riches. They were called “Forty-Niners” because they left home in 1849.

        38   Sutter did not have gold fever. He wanted an agricultural kingdom and refused to give up his dream. In the new California, he was simply in the way. The Forty-Niners destroyed his crops (庄稼) and pulled down his fort for the building materials. In the end, he was very sad and left California.

    A. Sutter welcomed the newcomers.

    B. The news soon spread to every village and town.

    C. He was a European and moved to California in 1839.

    D. A few films were made about the story of John Sutter.

    E. However, few people believed the discovery was a fact.

    F. By the end of 1850, Sutter's kingdom completely broke down.

    G. It was nearly complete when something unusual caught Marshall's eyes.
