9/6/2016 – Pudding 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.

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.

Question 1

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.

Question 2

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?

Question 4

5. On their website, which flavor of Jell-O pudding comes first alphabetically?
