6/9/2016 – Noodle Identification 2


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.

We had a Food/Drink question yesterday, so let’s go to the tape:

Learned League precedent (LL69, MD10) – Bavette, bucatini, conchiglie, gemelli, and lumache (or chiocciole) are different variations of what?

While most of these names were unknown to me, I did recognize conchiglie as the conch-shaped pasta that I’ve discussed in February’s Noodle Identification installment. Also, I was *pretty* sure that bucatini was a pasta, but I can’t say I knew what it looked like. Nonetheless, I’m now 4 for 4 in F/D questions. What strange time we live in.

So, since knowing pasta is an important thing, FCT is featuring its first sequel. I covered 10 pastas last time, and only 1 made it to this question, which featured 6, so it’s time to raise the pasta number. I’ll give you a picture and the Italian translation of the name, you give me the pasta.
