11/10/2016 – Split


Welcome back 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.

I want to first apologize about my absence. Graduate school is not as easy as you may think, and I’ve been taking a bit of time dedicated to that, and this blog has suffered. I love this blog, and I look forward to continuing my quest of learning about food and actually sampling very little of it, and I look forward to continuing this blog into 2017. I just wanted to let you know that if you see breaks in the action, grad school is why.

I fully plan on being active for the next weeks as LL71 happens, and hope to have next-day coverage of all the food questions that occur.

After a tiring week this has been, I figured a category about things being “split” was thematic. Hope you enjoy these food questions!

1. The kippers seen here have been split using what cutting technique, named for an animal you probably wouldn’t see on a dinner table?

Question 1

2. What non-restaurant chain is credited with popularizing the banana split, as its namesake during the turn of the century in the Chicagoland area made the dessert the store’s official dessert? This chain has used the slogan “Be Well” in the recent era.

3. Because of a certain meteorological metaphor, the English’s “London Fog” dish is a variety of what thematic dish?

4. If you were in the city of Split, you might enjoy the dish Crni rižot, which is a form of cuttlefish or squid risotto, especially popular amongst coastal cities like Split. With a population of around 180,000, Split is the second-largest city of what European country?

Question 4

5. The “milkette” is another term for the 12.5% butterfat additive that as an American, you probably know better by what split name?

Thanks everyone, and there ought to be questions tomorrow!


1. Butterflying
2. Walgreens
3. Split pea soup
4. Croatia (its capital Zagreb is the largest)
5. Half and half

  1. I first learned of the city of Split at a pub quiz maybe 3 or 4 years back, where we were asked to give the world city for each of a group of airport codes. Nobody got SPU. (I think our team plumped for St. Petersburg.) Finally that knowledge has paid off!
