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.
I took a couple of weeks off, since LL74 wrapped up and because school gets tricky.
This edition is inspired by friend-of-the-show Alex Jeffrey. About a week ago, Alex shared a photo to my Facebook that featured an amazing diagram that shows Mexican foods broken down into a taxonomy, while each of the foods were cartoons! So, in honor of this amazing graphic, I made a quiz.
Given a cartoon food and its definition, name the food. The graphic in full can be found with the answers. Good luck!
1. Tortilla chips that are topped with cheese, chiles, etc. then heated until the cheese melts.
2. A torta made with a sesame seed bread roll, made with egg, and often includes avocado, meat, and white cheese, with the final product looking like a brioche.
3. Tamale variety featuring mole sauce and chicken, named after the Mexican state where it originates.
4. Traditional soup made with hominy, pork, and shredded vegetables.
5. Rotating pork dish directly inspired by the Lebanese population that immigrated to Mexico in the early 20th century.
6. Street food consisting of a corn on the cob, and covered with salt, chili powder, butter, and other spices, which I had for the first time over the weekend!
7. Sweet roll, sometimes topped with anise seeds, that is traditionally eaten November 1st or 2nd.
