8 A bit more challenging Now, let’s see if you can handle a larger text with different question types. Home of the deep-fried Mars bar wins shop sign battle Libby Brooks, Scotland correspondent Aberdeenshire council has been forced into an embarrassing apology after a community tried to save a sign proclaiming a chip shop to be the originator of the deep-fried Mars bar. 1 Council officials had ordered the removal of a two-metre long banner advertising the Carron fish bar in Stonehaven as the birthplace of the world-famous snack, in a sharply worded letter. But the shop’s owner, Lorraine Watson, said that the official who wrote to her had now called to apologise and assured her that the council would not insist that the sign was taken down. “He said he anticipated he hadn’t caused me any inconvenience. In fact, he’s done me a power of good, I’ve even had the Financial Times on the phone this morning and people passing the chip shop have been hooting their horns in support,” she said. 2 The deep-fried Mars bar, now imitated in chip shops across the country, was first attempted by Carron’s fryers in 1992, at the request of a local schoolboy. In 2012, Mars wrote to the owners of the chip shop because Mars wanted to 6 the recipe, saying it was “against its commitment to promoting healthy lifestyles”. 3 Chris Stirk, chair of Stonehaven Business Association, said: “There is a regeneration plan to tidy up the town centre and remove eyesores, but I personally don’t consider this one of them and it does bring so many visitors to the town. This morning, there were two Austrians in there, who had come to get their Mars bars and have their photo taken with the banner.” She said the community was strongly in favour of the banner staying: “It’s been there since 2006, which is plenty of time for people to have come up with objections if they had any. The inhabitants love it.” The Carron, which primarily serves fish and chips using locally sourced haddock, can batter up to 2,000 Mars bars in the tourist season. 4 While the deep-fried Mars bar has become typical for Scotland’s eating expectations, the culinary landscape has changed significantly in recent years, with 16 Michelin-starred restaurants across the country and the food and drink tourism sector worth an estimated 2.5m pound a day. Sue Lawrence, Scotland’s leading food critic, says there has been a move away from unhealthy eating. “People are concerned so much more about provenance of ingredients. local is so much more important. People are definitely cooking more for themselves.” STEPS EXAM TEXTS Step 1 SKIM Look at the pictures, titles and everything else that stands out: What is the text about? What do you know about it already? Step 2 QUESTION Read the question: what do you learn from it? And what type of question is it? Step 3 SEARCH Turn to the text and search for the answer to the question. Remember there are different strategies for different question types. Step 4 CHECK If you think you have found the answer, go back to the question to check if you’ve answered the question correctly and completely.
