3/11/2016 – Not What It Sounds Like


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, we cover foods with a very unique property: they aren’t what they seem. You might think you know what you were ordering, but they are nowhere near what they sound like. Don’t be fooled by the names, and good luck!

1. Biloxi Bacon is the name of the dish seen here, which is simply a smoked version of what fish, with a cane syrup glaze?

Question 1

2. If you ordered Colonial goose from a New Zealand restaurant menu, you wouldn’t see any poultry, but rather a roast leg of what, appropriately enough?

3. Scotch woodcock features no chicken, but is British dish made with softly scrambled eggs on toast, as well as paste made from what?

4. Name the dish seen here, a melted cheese often mixed with ale, and seasoned with dry mustard, black pepper, and Worcestershire sauce, and then served over toast. Its name contains a region that we don’t know if it came from there, and an animal name that certainly isn’t used while making it.

Question 4

5. What is the dish seen here, which certainly is not the seafood that its name appears to be?

Question 5
