Hung: I can’t believe that the famous food critic, Julia Schilds, will be eating in my restaurant tomorrow night. I need to prepare a gourmet menu that’s going to be mind-blowing.
我不能相信,著名的美食评论家,Julia Schilds,,明天晚将在上我的餐厅吃饭。我需要准备一个能令美食家兴奋的菜单。

Padma: She wouldn’t be coming here if she didn’t already know that your cuisine is considered some of the best food in the city.
如果她还不知道你做的菜被认为是城市中最好的,她是不会到这里来的。

Hung: That may be so, but you’re only as good as your last meal. I need to think of some delicacies that will really impress her. Let’s see, I think we should offer two new hors d’oeuvres, in addition to the ones already on the menu.
也许是这样,你只能确保和上次做的一样。我需要一些美味佳肴,来真正打动她。让我们来看看,我认为除了菜单上的那些,我们应该提供两个新的开胃小菜。

Padma: Are you sure the chefs in the kitchen will be able to handle making six different hors d’oeuvres?
你肯定厨房的厨师将能够处理六种不同的冷盘?

Hung: Hmm, maybe not.

Padma: Why don’t you concentrate on the entrees? I’m sure you could come up with one or two new dishes that will really impress her.
你为什么不集中的主菜?我敢肯定,你能做一个或两个能真正打动她的新菜。

Hung: Okay, but I don’t want to put all of my eggs in one basket. I need to have dishes in every course that are out of this world.
好了,但我不想孤注一掷。我需要在每个类别里都加上一些极好的菜。

Padma: Come on. You’re a great chef. What’s the worst she could say?
