1/15/2016 – “Q” Foods


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.

Each Friday, we’ll cover something in food that is good to know for trivia purposes or for general food purposes. This week, we cover foods that begin with the letter Q. Nostalgists of the 90s will remember that this exact subject was a critical Jeopardy! category in the film “White Men Can’t Jump”.


And of course, quizmasters like to rehash old pseudo-subjects like this, so let’s delve into this dishes!

1. Quattro formaggi, coming from the Italian for “four cheeses”, is a popular style of pizza which naturally is a blend of four cheeses. Name any two of these four cheeses.

2. The dish pictured here is what poached dumpling, consisting of a mixture of creamed fish or meat, formed into an egg shape? Its name is a general name for the shape it takes, and can be applied for the ice cream dish made in the same shape.

Question 2

3. Name either of the two countries that produce 92% of the world’s supply of the supposed “supergrain” quinoa.

4. The food seen here is partially named after what French region?
