9/23/2016 – Champagne (1000 Questions!)

science-of-sound-header

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, the 1000th original question gets asked on Five Course Trivia! It has been a great journey writing all of these questions, and I certainly feel more of a world traveler and more cultured through this new knowledge. Also, I especially have to thank the 11 folks who have guest written for FCT (whose questions are counted in the 1000). I look forward to writing more questions right here, and I hope I will not rest until my F/D percentage is .900+.

To celebrate 1000 questions, here’s a spot of champagne. Cheers!
