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.
For our fifteenth visit to a foreign land (well, fourteenth if we count Hawaii as not being foreign), we take a stroll to the Netherlands, or Holland apparently. And in covering these questions, we shall be tulip, windmill, and wooden shoe free.
1. Seen here is what popular dish, essentially a deep fried meatball of beef or veal, which are eaten with mustard?
2. Name the immensely popular street food seen here. It’s made with a layer of caramel-like syrup between both sides, and you can probably figure out the last couple of syllables just from looking at it.
3. One of the more “bracing” foods you can try in the Netherlands is what form of salty licorice, where that salt is ammonium chloride. It’s often made into shapes like coins, animals, and lozenges, which may be where it gets the name most people know it by.
4. Name the Dutch cheese seen here. Made from cow’s milk, this cheese is flavored with cumin and caraway seeds.
5. We end our World Wednesday on some beer, once again. The main three breweries in the Netherlands are Heineken (which also brews Amstel), Bavaria, and what other company with distinctive green bottles? This beer is the leading import lager in the United Kingdom, and mini-kegs of this beer are seen in the United States.
Learned League precedent (LL34, MD18) – What is the name of the liqueur named after the largest island in the Netherlands Antilles?
Tomorrow: Strawberry questions forever!
