1/6/2017 – Flambéed Foods


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.

Yesterday’s edition included Alaskan foods, none of which were Baked Alaska. Today’s edition takes care of that, by asking about foods you set on fire. Enjoy!

1. Although the word originally was associated with a European celebration, what word has entered the dictionary meaning “flambé”, notably for a dessert that incorporates Kirsch?

2. The Bananas Foster is a dessert made bananas, ice cream, brown sugar, dark rum, and banana liqueur first made in 1951 at Brennan’s, a restaurant in what famous neighborhood? Other establishments in this neighborhood include Antoine’s, Arnaud’s, Galatoire’s, K-Paul’s, and Central Grocery.

Question 2

3. Although this flambéed drink is made from beer, amaretto, and high-proof liquor, it seems to taste like what non-alcoholic drink, as evidenced by its name?

Question 3

4. Served with Worcestershire sauce, mushrooms, and named after a Roman goddess, name this steak dish seen here.  Its creation came with the fad of having tableside flambéed foods.

Question 4 (sorry for no flame)

5. What dessert of custard and caramel is on fire here?

Question 5

6. What gas with formula C4H10 is often used in handheld cooking torches like the one seen here? This way, you can set foods on fire on the go.

Have a great weekend!
