9/7/2016 – World Wednesday – Turkish


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.

Before we move into Turkish food, LL had a question about drink yesterday:

Learned League precedent (LL70, MD8) – Édouard Manet’s A Bar at the Folies-Bergère, pictured here, features within it what is believed to be one of the first formally registered trademarks. It is a trademark for what brand?

Slam dunk for me, as I had a similar though during the Olympic cities series on FCT:


The answer was Bass Ale, and all was well. Unfortunately, my F/D remains .000 this season, because apparently this was a Bus/Econ question. Ah well.

Anyway, the World Wednesday Araba rolls on, and the 29th stop takes us to Turkey.

Afiyet olsun!
