2/1/17 – Fish and Chips (with Conal Huetter)


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.

This week is Guest Week here at FCT, and I’m inviting friends and supporters of the site to craft some of their own questions! Today, we have questions from Conal Huetter, an archivist in Washington DC. Conal is also the author of the upcoming Sandwiches 1DS tomorrow, so be sure to play that. Everything after this point was written by him. Enjoy!
