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.
Brunch. Do we know what it is? As a man, no. This is a field that is beyond the scope of my imagination. Listen, I understand breakfast and lunch. Also, I’m a huge proponent of having large meals between other large meals. But somehow there’s a completely different menu for Sunday noon plus/minus two hours? And this is from someone who recently ordered a Waffle House hash brown all-the-way at 5pm.
In honor of working for the weekend, here are some questions about brunch. To us!
1. What Creole brunch dish seen here is a pounded round steak, served with a tomato sauce, and usually served with grits? Despite what you might think, it is made by frying or searing the meat.
2. Eggs Benedict is a classic dish featuring an English muffin, poached eggs, hollandaise sauce, and Canadian bacon. What brunch dishes is the same thing, except the Canadian bacon is replaced with crab meat?
3. The oyster dish seen here, made with oysters on the half-shell baked with spinach, shallots, celery, and bread crumbs is named for what prominent American?
4. Sharing its name with a geologic term, name this dish similar to a frittata or quiche, made with bread, egg, and cheese, and often vegetables like spinach.
5. A mimosa is a cocktail that’s half champagne and half orange juice. The drink is served in a champagne flute, which is the glass seen in the middle of this picture. Name either type of champagne glass on either side of the flute.
Bonus 6. Name the two words blocked out in this screenshot, taken from liquor.com.
