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.
So, back at LL HQ, I am currently 2 for 8. Right now, it’s seeing if I can stay above that relegation zone. I blame my current streak slightly to hard questions, but definitely to no food questions! C’mon, we’re 2/5 of the way through, and we’ve only had 2 food questions! And one of them was about cattle! I hope my luck will change soon.
Today’s installment will land squarely in the last spot on the alphabetical archive list. Twelve questions about tangential connections to the zodiac! Enjoy.
