5. Read the text and answer the questions choosing the one answer which is closest to the
meaning.
A British restaurant that serves bacon and egg ice cream has been voted the best place in the
world to eat in Restaurant magazine`s list of The World`s 50 best restaurants. The Fat Duck
restaurant, which was runner-up last year, claimed the coveted top spot. Owner and head chef
Heston Blumenthal opened his restaurant ten years ago and soon developed a reputation for
highly experimental and unorthodox dishes. The menu includes leather, oak and tobacco
chocolates, sardine on toast sorbet, snail porridge, and mousse dipped in liquid nitrogen. He is
self-taught and has pioneered the art of “molecular gastronomy” - experiments with chemistry,
physics, food and flavour that result in unique and unusual taste combinations.
Nearly 600 international restaurant owners, chefs and journalists participated in the poll to rank
the best restaurants worldwide. A further thirteen British restaurants made it onto the elite
eateries list, four in the top ten. This gives the home of fish and chips an unusual reputation as a
culinary paradise. Britain is infamous for its bland and uninspiring food, which is scoffed at by
the more sophisticated palates of its French neighbours. However, it seems the tide is turning:
2
France had only eight restaurants in the top fifty and London was named in March by Gourmet
magazine as the Gourmet Capital of the World. Ella Johnston, editor of Restaurant magazine,
said British people are now “becoming more adventurous eaters”.

Teenage “Girls Too Embarrassed” to Keep Fit
Most teenage girls want to be fitter and lose weight, but fewer than half do any weekly exercise,
according to research.
A study due to be published also found that fewer than half of all young people eat any fresh
fruit daily despite Government recommendations.
It found that the very reason that girls want to exercise more inhibits them. They want to exercise
to improve their appearance, but many do not because they do not like the way they look while
exercising.
Helen Haste, a professor of psychology at Bath University and the author of the report “My
Body, My Self”, to be published this month by the Nestle Social Research Foundation, said,
“Work has been done before on young people`s behaviour in relation to health, but we were
interested in their attitude to health, fitness and exercise. We can`t persuade young people to
change their behaviour just by telling them what`s good for them, but need to appeal to what is
important for them. “Talking about being healthy in itself is not the right way to appeal to them,
but being fitter and more attractive is.”
Professor Haste said fewer than half her sample exercised once a week, apart from walking.
Asked why they did not exercise 49 per cent of girls said that they did not feel comfortable
exercising in front of other people, 35 per cent said they did not have time, 34 per cent said they
did not look good in exercise clothes, 33 per cent said they did not want to look too muscular and
30 per cent said they were no good at sport. Almost half the girls (47 per cent) said they would
rather dance or do yoga than take part in traditional sports.
