12/19/2016 – Peppermint


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.

With three Match Days to go, I’m sitting in 4th place in my B Rundle. With any luck, I’ll stay in the top 5 and make it to A for next season. But I’m not counting my chicken nuggets, since I was in a similar spot last season and ended up in ninth place.

It’s Christmas next week! While I’ll still be covering any foods that appear in LL71, let’s enjoy the holiday season with some yuletide foods! There a LOT of Christmas food, so this segment will last for most of these next two weeks. Today, let’s have some peppermint. Enjoy!
