10/17/2016 – What Comes Fourth? (w/ Neville Fogarty)


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.

This week is Guest Week here at FCT, and I’m inviting friends and supporters of the site to craft some of their own questions! To start the week, we have questions from Neville Fogarty, a math professor now in Newport News, Virginia. He’s currently a co-smith of the What Comes Fourth? 1DS currently live on LL. 

Today’s installment is based on the original source of this style of question, the British quiz show “Only Connect” [editor’s note: you can watch this wonderful program here]. You have to determine what comes fourth in these food-related sequences. We’ll spot you the first entry in each sequence of four, and if you need more, then you can click on corresponding boxes.

And in spirit of the original show, you can keep score! If you determine the fourth entry after seeing only the first clue, you get 5 points. After two clues, you get 3 points. After three clues, you get 2 points. Feel free to share (or not) your score.

  1. Instead of a text file for each clue, maybe just make each clue white – then you can highlight over it with the mouse.


    1. True, but since this website is mostly email based, if the text was made white when I wrote it, then all the people who receive the email would see all the text, since it wouldn’t translate to white. For now, I’m content with the format of this quiz.
