文字稿//The Oldest Meal Ever

Do you like to eat leftovers? 你喜歡吃剩菜嗎?

Maybe your dad made dinner yesterday and put it in the fridge. Or maybe you
have eaten a meal from two days ago, or even three days ago.
你可能吃過冰箱裡面昨天的晚餐,甚至兩三天前的飯菜。

What about a meal from seventy thousand years ago?
但你吃過七萬年前的飯菜嗎?

In fact, scientists recently found a meal like that. They discovered it in a
cave in Iraq, and they say it's the oldest cooked meal they've ever found.
科學家最近在伊拉克的洞穴裡面找到全世界最古老的餐食。

The scientists studied the meal, to learn what food people cooked so long
ago. They found the meal was made of seeds.
他們研究了這頓飯,發現是用植物的種子做的。

How was it cooked? The people who made it used rocks to mash the seeds. Then,
they boiled the seeds in water to make a pancake.
怎麼做的呢?古人用石頭把種子碾碎,再拿去煮,做成煎餅。

Was that pancake good? To find out, the scientists tried to make the same
meal. They took seeds from near the cave and used the same recipe.
那個煎餅好吃嗎?科學家用洞穴附近的種子做了一樣的料理。

In the end, their meal was delicious! It tasted like nuts. The only problem?
It was hard to chew!
結果很好吃!味道像是堅果,但是很難咬!

Before this discovery, we had no idea the art of cooking was so old.

Now that we've found the oldest meal ever, we have to ask... what else did
people know seventy thousand years ago?
