3/30/17 – Ends with “X”


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.

Hi everybody! So, it’s been a couple of weeks, and now LL72 is finished! My summary:
1. 105/150 correct answers
2. 8/11 on Food/Drink
3. 6-15-4
4. 23rd of 26
5. Stay in A

There’s no doubt 5CT has made my F/D score stay high, and I’m thankful for this site everyday. I hope your season went the way you wanted, and if not, I hope you’re crafting your strategy for LL73!

Um, we had some food questions a while back, so let’s go to the tape:

Learned League precedent (LL72, 13) – A cornerstone of French cuisine is what thickening agent for basic sauces, first made by cooking flour and butter together until a brownish tint was obtained? The recipe remains the same today, though the desired color can vary.

Week 1 of Five Course Trivia covered the mother sauces of France, and it payed off today (Question 2). Roux was right, and since I don’t really want to talk about flour/butter combos, how about foods that end with X, thus completing the “extremities that end with X” series. Enjoy!

1. What mixture is shown in the dish seen here?

Question 1

2. What treat made by Mars takes its name from a portmanteau derived from having a pair of biscuits used to make them?

3. A type of mustard sauce, hovmästarsås, literally translating as maitre d’s sauce and seen here, is a sauce that almost always accompanies what dish?

Question 3

4. Since 2003, what restaurant chain has been the owner of Qdoba Mexican Eats restaurant chain?
