by Ivy Liu

As her motto goes, she does crazy stuff with food.

For the movie's international release, Pixar _(1)_ broccoli with whatever vegetable was most suitable for a particular region's picky-eating children. When food blogger Linda Miller Nicholson was presented with the challenge of raising a son who _(2)_ his nose up at vegetables, she readily accepted it by sneaking them into pasta in wildly imaginative ways.
  As a molecular gastronomist _(3)_ as the "Lady Gaga of Food" by the Cooking Channel, Nicholson regularly
approaches food in an original way. However, she has gained _(4)_ for her out-of-this-world pasta creations.

She includes kale, peas, beets, paprika, turmeric, and other ingredients to get the _(5)_ colors she needs. Then, she documents her pasta masterpieces under her Instagram handle Salty Seattle, which is the name of her former blog.
  Nicholson began her journey at the center of the Slow Food Movement in Torino, Italy. _(6)_, she has appeared on the American version of MasterChef, with celebrity chef and television personality Gordon Ramsay. Now, she's the host of Food Network's Facebook live videos _(7)_ she regularly teaches people how to utilize her pasta-making

彩色義大利麵 繽紛你的世界

  在全球廣受好評的皮克斯電影《腦筋急轉彎》中,有一幕是一個爸爸對於難以讓剛學步的孩子吃下花椰菜 ── 引起大多數那個年齡層的孩子厭惡的一種蔬菜 ── 而苦惱不已。在該部電影的國際版本中,皮克斯用最適合特定地區挑食孩童的任何蔬菜來取代花椰菜。當美食部落客琳達.米勒.妮可森面臨養育她拒吃蔬菜兒子的挑戰時,她欣然接受並藉著極富想像力的方式將蔬菜偷偷摻進義大利麵中。
  身為被烹飪頻道稱為「美食界女神卡卡」的分子美食家(編按:分子食物是一個正風靡全球的廚藝概念,廚師會利用各種工具,透過物理或化學的變化,把食材的味道、口感、質地及樣貌完全打散,再重新「組合」成一道新菜。),妮可森經常以創新的方式來處理食物。然而,她因其不同凡響的義大利麵創作而打響了名號。它們並非是平淡色彩且口味單調的普通義大利麵;它們是滑稽有趣的義大利麵設計,擁有繽紛色彩、迷人圖案、對藝術作品的崇敬(如維梅爾的《戴珍珠耳環的少女》),以及其他使用全天然食材的文化圖像。她將羽衣甘藍、豌豆、甜菜、紅辣椒粉、薑黃和其他成分混合以獲得她所需的鮮豔色彩。接著,她將她的義大利麵傑作記錄在名為 Salty Seattle 的 Instagram 帳號,這是她以前部落格的名字。
  妮可森在義大利杜林慢食運動中心開始了她的旅程。從那時起,她與名廚兼電視人物戈登.拉姆齊一起出現在美國版的《廚神當道》節目中。如今,她是美食頻道臉書直播影片的主持人,在直播中她經常教大家如何利用她製作義大利麵的技巧。她的烹飪書將於 2018 年初出版,沒有人知道妮可森下一步會推出什麼。
答案: 1. D 2. C 3. A 4. C 5. D 6. B 7. A
