12/13/2016 – Ovens


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.

We had a Food/Drink question yesterday, so let’s go to the tape:

Learned League precedent (LL71, MD18) – Pasta and other Italian dishes which are described as al forno, such as lasagna, have what distinction?

I’m sure “forno” and “furnace” come from the same root, but they both mean from the oven. Thankful for a nice layup using food terminology, so I now go to 4 for 7.

Even though it crossed my mind to do an installment on baked things, but we just had an edition on uncooked foods, so today we’re doing ovens. Enjoy!

1. Pictured here, the item called a braadpan in the Netherlands, translated from “frying pan”, is known as what in the United States?

Question 1

2. To the nearest 100 degrees Fahrenheit, according to GE, what temperature does a self-cleaning oven reach during a cleaning cycle in order to fulfill its namesake purpose?

3. Name the German appliance company, often associated with their ovens, whose logo is featured here. If you remove its last letter, you get the name of a type of pear.

Question 3

4. Of fish, cake, steak, or pizza, which one of these foods were likely be cooked on an impingement oven?

5. What type of oven is seen here, which uses a lamp with a light powered with elements like iodine and bromine?

Question 5


1. Dutch oven
2. 900 degrees F
3. Bosch
4. Pizza. It’s the kind of oven with a conveyer belt. It’s often used at sandwich places like Quizno’s.
5. Halogen oven
