每日英語跟讀 Ep.K330: About food - Food is more expensive than it has been in decades

Bad news for American consumers: It’s getting more expensive to dine out, and it’s getting more expensive to eat at home.

 

美國消費者有一個壞消息:在外用餐愈來愈貴,在家吃也愈來愈貴。

 

Restaurant prices spiked 5.8% over the 12 months ending in November without seasonal adjustments, the Bureau of Labor Statistics said Friday. That’s the largest 12-month increase since the year ended January 1982.

 

美國勞工統計局週五表示,截至去年11月的過去12個月,餐廳價格在無季節性調價的情況下飆升5.8%,為自在1982年1月結束的一年以來的12個月最大增幅。

 

And unfortunately for those hoping to curb spending by turning to home cooking, grocery prices are also at record highs.

 

不幸的是,對那些想在家煮飯以控制支出的人來說,食物與雜貨價格也處於歷史新高。

 

The sharp increases underscore the fact that restaurants and food makers are not immune to supply chain and labor pressures contributing to pricing increases across the board.

 

價格暴漲凸顯此一事實,即餐廳與食物製造廠商也無法不受到導致價格全面上漲的供應鏈斷鏈與缺工壓力的影響。

Giant strawberry earns Israeli farmer a Guinness World Record 大草莓替以色列農夫贏得金氏世界紀錄

Israeli farmer Chahi Ariel has grown the world’s heaviest strawberry, according to Guinness World Records.

根據《金氏世界紀錄大全》,以色列農夫查希.埃里兒種出全世界最重的草莓。

At 289 grams, the strawberry was about five times the average weight of a regular berry of the local Ilan variety, said Nir Dai, a researcher at Israel’s Volcani Institute where the strain was developed.

重達289公克,服務於研發該品種的以色列「火山中心」研究人員尼爾.戴說,這顆草莓約是當地「伊蘭」品種正常苺果平均重量的5倍。

The strawberry was 18 cm long and 34 cm in circumference, the online Guinness entry said.

網路上的金氏登錄資料說,這顆草莓18公分長、圓周為34公分。

Ariel had been hoping he was onto a winner when they saw how big the fruit were growing on his family farm last year. He has been waiting for confirmation it was a record while keeping the giant strawberry in the freezer as proof.

埃里兒去年看到家族農場的水果生長尺寸後,一直期盼成為贏家。等著紀錄確認的同時,他把這顆大草莓放進冰箱保存當證據。

Unusually cold weather in early 2021 slowed the strawberry’s ripening process, allowing it to continue gaining weight, according to the record book’s website.(Reuters)

根據這本紀錄冊的網站,2021年初不尋常的寒冷天氣延緩了這顆草莓的熟化過程,讓它得以繼續變重。Source article: https://features.ltn.com.tw/english/article/paper/1502493 ; https://features.ltn.com.tw/english/article/paper/1502680
