1/5/2016 – “Containing” Dishes


Welcome to Five Course Trivia! Five days a week, we’ll post five questions about something from the culinary world, from soup to nuts and all dishes in between.

Today’s topic are “containing” words. In many names of dishes, a word signifies that the dish contains a certain food item. Given that word and an example of a dish, name the food item that would be found in that dish. Sorry for lack of pictures. This is one of those types of questions where pictures of the food might give away the answer.

1. Benne (found in foods like benne brittle)

2. Nantua (especially found in sauces like the one in the dish fish mousseline with sauce nantua)

3. Ubriaco (like the Italian Veneto region’s Ubriaco cheese)

4. Lyonnaise (as in potatoes lyonnaise, as opposed to the Lyonnaise cuisine found in France)

5. Amandine (found in dishes like catfish amandine)

Learned League precedent (L66, MD6) – What is the essential ingredient in any dish described as florentine?

Tomorrow: We head to the Emerald Isle for our first World Wednesday!
