9/12/2016 – Ham


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 featured another F/D question, so let’s go to the tape:

Learned League precedent (LL70, MD11) – D’Ardennes, ibérico, di Parma, Westfälischer, and Yunnan all form common phrases with the accompaniment of one word—the same word, albeit in the corresponding language. What is that word translated into English?

So, I didn’t know this. Again, I’m semi-positive Thorsten is checking FCT to see if these questions have been asked before. I put “peninsula”. Of course I know Iberia is a peninsula, but I was semi-sure that Parma was on a peninsula (it’s not). Also, I thought Yunnan was the Korean name for Korea, but ah well.

Thorsten has given us five names of different hams, so let’s make that today’s theme. Here’s five questions about those hams. Enjoy!

1. Jambon d’Ardenne is a native dish of what Belgium region, the third region of Brussel, as opposed to Brussels and the Flemish region? Other native dishes to the region include Liege waffle, Herve cheese, and Orval beer.

Question 1

2. A simple test for  determining a jamón ibérico’s quality is by seeing if the meat has regular flecks of intramuscular fat, in other words, if it’s what?

Question 2

3. Parma ham aka Italian ham is more popular known as what name, a thinly dry-cured ham seen here?

Question 3

4. Westfälischer Schinken, or Westphalian ham, is a German delicacy which is made from pigs that have been fed specifically what item?

Question 4

5. Since I didn’t really find a good engaging question involving Xuanwei ham question, here’s a different one: the ham seen here is native to what four-letter English city? The ham is known for its pink coloring and is served with Madeira sauce.

Question 5
