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.
Sorry for the delay, but as of this moment, by masters thesis proposal has been sent to my committee. There’s more down the line, but at least that has been finished. Also, I’m REALLY looking forward to some good sleep tonight.
Welp, the first question of LL71 was about food/drink, so let’s go to the tape:
Learned League precedent (LL71, MD1) – The culinary term “affogato” normally refers to a dessert topped (or “drowned”) with what?
Thanks to a really awesome coffee chart I discovered writing my last Coffee installment, I remembered this gem:
I’ve never had it, as I don’t drink coffee, but I might be more inclined to if it’s basically a float. So, I’m now 1 for 1 on the Food and Drink! We’ll see how that goes.
1. Did you look at the coffee chart I linked to? Let’s see. What word is shared in the names of the four drinks seen here?
2. In coffee production, what hyphenated name is given to coffee plants that have been cultivated from under a canopy of trees?
3. Chai latte describes a standard caffe latte flavored with spiced tea instead of espresso. What adjective is added to its name when espresso shots are included in the drink?
4. Kona coffee, the only coffee grown in the United States, is official only if it was grown on the slopes of Mauna Loa or Hualalai on which Hawaiian island?
5. Bolt, Rivo, and Vue are all varieties of what? Bonus question, in which state is it headquartered in?
6. Excluding pumpkin, name the three spices (well, two spices and an herb) that go into the making of a Pumpkin Spice Latte by Starbucks.
7. Seen on the country ham pictured, name this sauce made from the drippings of pan-frying your favorite form of meat, with some black coffee mixed into it?
8. Since 1932, Maxwell House has produced what kind of text, a Jewish text that is read on the first two nights of Passover, which includes directions the ritual as well as the Book of Exodus? The book has been made into 50 million copies, and the Maxwell House form of this text is the most well known form if it today in the US.
We’ve got a food question today, so I’ll be back tomorrow for the recap! Sorry for the delay y’all!
