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.

To put the cherry on top of a long LL70, here’s a few questions on cherries. Enjoy!

1. A friend of mine noticed that my name “Chris King” can be anagrammed into the names of two alcoholic drinks, one of those being a brandy distilled from morello cherries. What are those two drinks?

2. Name the variety of sour cherries seen here. Typically grown in Michigan and Wisconsin, they’re named after a suburb of Paris.

  1. Wow – I clearly know NOTHING about cherries (except Kirsch and maraschino of course)… Good one!

    For truly delicious real maraschino cherries (and not the nuclear red ones found in most bars), I highly recommend buying a bottle of Luxardo maraschino cherries, imported from Italy. They will change your Wisconsin Old Fashioned and your life (be careful though – you’ll want to eat them all straight from the jar).
