1/5/2017 – World Wednesday – Alaska


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.

Back at USC after a day of traveling, and there’s expectations of snow hitting Columbia this weekend! I doubt it’ll stick, but there are predictions. In honor of the impending snowpacalypse, let’s head to America’s Canada and look at the food of Alaska!


1. Sailor Boy Pilot Bread is produced in Richmond, Virginia, while 98% of its production is sent to Alaska. The company Interback Foods which produces SBPB is probably the only company in the US that still produces this food commodity. What eight-letter name do you probably know it better as?

Question 1

2. What two words have been redacted twice in this amazing Wikipedia screenshot?

Question 2

3. M.A.’s Gourmet Dogs in Anchorage is known for its signature product, seen in this photo. Besides Coca-Cola caramelized onions and cream cheese, what else is peculiar about this hot dog?

Question 3

4. The port city of Dutch Harbor, Alaska and its hub for king crab fishing is prominently featured on what culinary TV program?

Question 4

5. A mukluk is a form of Inuit boot. The muktuk is an Inuit dish that is made from what tissue found under the skin of cetaceans? Muktuk is often eaten raw, and often served with soy sauce.

Question 5

6. Name the Anchorage brewery whose logo is seen here, which takes its name from a Alaskan state slogan.

Question 6

You might have asked why there aren’t any questions about the Baked form of this state. Tomorrow’s edition will be about foods you light on fire.

Also, I know a lot of the dishes above are semi-strange, but there is a bunch of normal foods and restaurants in Alaska as well.


1. Hardtack
2. Ice cream
3. Reindeer meat

5. (Whale) blubber
