草莓是“最快乐的水果”


草莓是最快乐的水果

It is the fruit most associated with those lazy, hazy days of British summer.

最能与英国那些慵懒朦胧的夏天联想在一起的就是水果了。


So perhaps it comes as no surprise the strawberry has been crowned the 'happiest fruit'.

 因此,草莓已荣登“最快乐水果”的宝座或许就不是一件令人惊讶的事了。


Its appeal is so strong that 86 per cent of people feel more relaxed just by thinking about eating one, a survey for theUniversityofLondonrevealed.

 伦敦大学的一项调查表示,草莓的魅力是如此强大以至于86%的人们只是想到吃一个草莓就感觉更放松了。


Researcher Professor Barry Smith said it is the distinctive smell of strawberries that evokes happy memories.

 调查员Barry Smith教授表示,这是由于草莓具有的独特香气唤起了人们的令人开心的回忆。


Fruits such as apples bring back less pleasant memories of meals on the go, while bananas and plums were the least likely to improve mood.

 水果比如苹果总是能够让人们回想起有关食物的快乐时光,香蕉和李子却是最不可能改善人们情绪的水果。


The study also found that sound impacts on taste, with the noise of a picnic or lawnmower making strawberries seem fruitier than a background of honking traffic or a bustling office.

 该研究还发现声音影响味道,野餐或者剪草机的噪声会比以繁忙的街道或者忙碌的办公室为背景的声音更让草莓具有水果的香味。


Finally, despite our love of strawberries and cream, those who took part in the study for the growers at British Summer Fruits said they were more likely to associate the berries with the smell of freshly cut grass.

 最后,尽管我们喜欢草莓和奶油,但是那些参加有关英国夏令水果种植者研究的人们却说或许它们更与散发着新鲜的青草芳香的浆果有关。


With this in mind, chef James 'Jocky' Petrie, of the Ledbury restaurant inLondon's Notting Hill, has created a strawberry sandwich complete with a 'grass' layer - made from white chocolate and wheatgrass.

考虑到这一点,在伦敦诺丁山Ledbury餐厅工作的厨师James ‘Jocky’ Petrie创造了一种草莓三明治,其中有一层是由白巧克力和芽草制作而成的“草”层。


Professor Smith, who did the research at theUniversityofLondon's Centre for the Study of the Senses, said: 'The smell is difficult to create artificially.

 主持该项调查研究的是在伦敦大学从事感官研究的Smith教授,他认为:‘这种气味很难人工制造出来。’


'Flavouring companies have failed at it by and large and yet it is so powerful as a reminder of those happy summer days.'

调味品公司们在这方面尝试过但却都失败了,这个气味是夏季快乐时光最有效的暗示。

P.S:这是第一次翻译,请大家多多指教,第一个黄色单词是不知道什么意思,第二个是无法理解,这句话如果断句的话怎么断呢?
