12/9/2016 – Black Friday


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.

I promised it a few weeks back, but now I’ve got the time to do it. This Friday, enjoy some foods that are in fact black!

1. After once boiling the juice from cane sugar, you get “first syrup” or “cane syrup”. Boiling that juice twice results in “second molasses”, which has a bitter taste. Boiling a third time will get you what kind of molasses?

Question 1

2. What cocktail is made from mixing equal parts stout (usually Guinness) and white, sparkling wine (traditionally Champagne)?

Question 2

3. What term is given to any prickly vine or shrub or thicket, often applied to blackberry bushes and fruits similar to blackberries?

4. Black beans, a staple in Mexican cuisine, are sometimes called black what beans, probably due to the shape of the beans?

Question 4

5. Give the brand name of the classic gum seen in the bottom right of this picture.

Question 5

6. Name the ice cream flavor seen in this picture. My memory with this flavor is solely that also-ran Herman Cain in his 2012 campaign compared himself to this ice cream flavor.

Question 6

Have a great weekend everyone!
