9/11/17 – Holes


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.

Last Friday, we had a Food/Drink question, so let’s go to the tape:

Learned League precedent (LL74, MD11) – Archetypal “Swiss” cheese, with its large holes, that is produced outside of Switzerland is an imitation of what authentic Swiss cheese, which takes its name from the valley near Bern where it originated?

That question appeared on the Swiss edition of World Wednesday, and it paid off in spades on Friday. I’ve also asked a very similar question for a USC trivia night. Either way, I’ve got cheese. I’m now 2 for 3 on F/D questions.

In honor of Emmental cheese and its eyes, here’s some more questions about foods with holes. Enjoy!

1. Name the holy cereal seen here.

2. Finish the analogy. Timbits : Tim Hortons :: ______ : Dunkin’ Donuts.
