9/29/2016 – “Z” Foods


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 marks the final day of LL70, and it looks like we are done with food questions for the season. This season I went 3 for 8 on the F/D questions, which is semi-disappointing . Chanterelle, Cassoulet, Kheer, Ham, and Marshmallow were all tough gets, but I would have loved to have gotten them. Well, nothing I can do about it now.

And, despite being in the green zone after MD23, it looks like I’ll be staying in B Rundle for LL71. I’ll end the season with 100+ correct answers, but I figure I’ll need 5 more right next season to confirm a promotion. Ah well. We’ve got the offseason to work on it.

Anyway, in honor of the season ending, I try to complete the Archive’s alphabetical listing with a set about Z foods. Enjoy!
