5/10/2016 – Sushi


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 belly up to the bar, specifically a sushi bar, and see what rice and fish we can find. Enjoy!

1. Match these types of sushi (shape wise) with the correct number in the picture below: Makizushi, Nigirizushi, Temaki.

Question 1

2. Besides cucumber, what fruit or vegetable is found in a California sushi roll? When served abroad, this ingredient is sometimes replaced with mango or banana.

3. If you order sushi with “unagi”, you should fully expect to see which fish in your sushi?

4. Pictured here is what sweet, pickled ginger that is eaten between sushi courses, to help with digestion, leading to its alternate name of “sushi ginger”?

Question 4

5. What’s the main talking point at a meal where the sushi is served “nyotaimori”?

Learned League precedent: The Sushi 1DS

Tomorrow: We’re actually going to have a World Wednesday, and we are heading to a nether land.

2. Avocado
3. Freshwater eel

5. There’s a naked woman involved. Yeah, this is that thing.
