3. Read the passage and answer the question

Rosio Sanchez, a Mexican American chef who lives in Copenhagen, makes the best tortillas in Scandinavia. That, she admits, isn't necessarily saying much -- like laying claim to the best pizza in Indonesia, “It was so much worse” she said, describing the state of Mexican food when she arrived in 2010 to work as the pastry chef in the celebrated restaurant Noma. “Imagine the worst Tex-Mex food in America and imagine that being passed on like a game of telephone, by people who have no idea what real Mexican food is” that is beginning to change, and not only in Copenhagen, Where Mrs. Sanchez has opened a Taqueria with freshly ground hand-pressed corn tortillas.

It goes far beyond tacos and tortillas, though Mexican cuisine has made the leap to the global stage of fine dining.

Chefs are making house-cured chorizo in Toronto, and Michelin-starred chilaquiles at Punto MX in Madrid. Last week, the Houston chef Hugo Ortega, who began his working life as a shoeshine boy in Mexico City, received the James Beard Foundation’s award for best chef in his region: a first for a Mexico-born chef.

“Everywhere, I see a new respect for Mexican culture,” said Martha Ortiz, a celebrity chef in Mexico who is opening a warmly elegant restaurant, Ella Canta, in the InterContinental London Park Lane hotel this summer. Ten years ago, when a taco in London might easily have contained canned baked beans, the idea of a Mexican restaurant in a posh hotel would have been mystifying.

“Our traditional food has always had a high value at home, and there is a lot of respect for the women who produce it,” she said. “But for people internationally to be excited about it and willing to pay for it? That is new.”
