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 wrap up the week with the rest of the Olympic host cities, and it’s exciting that we will have asked more questions about home cities than Michael Phelps has earned gold medals. There’s no way he’ll reach 28!
Los Angeles 1984: Name the restaurant seen here, founded in 1939, whose hot dogs are often listed as best in the city and state, and a cultural landmark for the city.
Seoul 1988: Translating as “mixed rice”, name the Korean dish seen here, made of mixed vegetables and beef, served on rice, and usually topped with a raw or fried egg.
Barcelona 1992: What Catalan speciality and incredible-Scrabbly named food is a dessert filled with crema catalana, deep fried, and covered in sugar?
Atlanta 1996: If you order your hash browns at Waffle House “smothered” and “covered”, what two ingredients will you find on it? Within the last 3 months, I’ve ordered the hash brown all the way, and it was so good and so much. I really should not get chili on the next one.
Sydney 2000: What two words have been obscured in this photo?
Athens 2004: Since not all Greek cheese is feta, name the cheese seen here, made from sheep’s or goat’s milk and features a sharp, salty flavor. The cheese is often grated, and this cheese is also the cheese often used in saganaki.
Beijing 2008: Name the dish seen here.
London 2012: The Manet painting “A Bar at the Foiles-Bergere” features a bottle of what English beer on the right, since its logo is clearly shown? The logo is oldest trademark in Britain, registered in 1875, although the beer was first made in 1777.
Rio 2016: Name the tropically fruit seen here. Don’t think too hard about it.
If you’ve think I’ve missed a major dish in this Olympic series, be sure to check out their country from a previous World Wednesday. I hope you’ve enjoyed this series, and keep watching the Olympics.
Next Monday: I’ve got a busy, traveling weekend, so no guarantee on Monday. If I do, I’m feeling McDonald’s, as to keep the Olympic series going.
