Pink Yogurt Covered Pretzels  Strawberry

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 move elsewhere in the dairy kingdom by asking questions about yogurt. Note: it’s pronounced yo-gurt, and not yog-urt. Sorry if you’re confused, but that’s how it is.

1. The edifice of a temple are seen in the logo for what Greek yogurt by Dannon Yogurt? This brand is typically seen in blue containers, and its name comes from the Greek for “household”.

2. While we’re on Greek yogurt, name the dipping sauce seen here, made with garlic, cucumber, olive oil, lemon juice, and yogurt, which is often served with calamari.

Question 2

3. Often flavored with cucumber and mint, name the yogurt-based side dish seen in Indian and Pakistani cuisine. The dish is often considered a salad when it includes chopped vegetables and fruits, and is very closely related to dahi chutney.

Question 3

4. The food product marketed as “Yoplait Tubes” in Canada is marketed as what in the United States?

5. To the nearest ten degrees, what temperature in Fahrenheit is milk set to during the fermentation process, which after several hours, will essentially create the yogurt we eat? The number I have is based on several online food resources, so it seems to be right.

Learned League precedent (LL58, MD22) – This traditionally salty Indian beverage is made by blending yogurt with water, salt, and spices until frothy, and flavored with cumin and chili pepper. A sweet version is flavored with sugar, rosewater, or fruit juice.

Tomorrow: We once again look at the archive, and let’s do a sequel to our “Q” foods by now covering “X” foods!
