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.
Last Friday, we had another Food/Drink question so let’s go to the tape:
Learned League precedent (LL70, MD 7) – What is the name, used in North India and most common in the west, for the sweet milk pudding that is served as a dessert or during a meal, usually made with rice, and flavored with raisins, cardamom, cinnamon, almonds, pistachio, or other ingredients? Its South Indian equivalent is payasam.
Wow, I think Thorsten is double checking to make sure the Food/Drink questions haven’t been asked on FCT. I’ve never heard of “kheer”, and I now go 0 for 3 in the food category. I’ve really got to write more food questions.
The inaugural question set for FCT was about pudding, so let’s do a sequel, nine months later. Enjoy!
1. A dried fruit custard with nuts, name the pudding seen here that was a favorite of Harry Truman. Its name clearly shows it was made in the state of Missouri.
2. Italian for “cooked cream”, name this dessert from the Piedmont region made of sweetened cream thickened with gelatin, and can be flavored with rum, coffee, or vanilla.
3. Tapioca is a starch that is extracted from what root?
4. What amphibian name is given to this English dish, made of sausages/bangers in Yorkshire pudding batter?
5. On their website, which flavor of Jell-O pudding comes first alphabetically?
