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.
We had a F/D question earlier this week, so let’s review:
LearnedLeague precedent (LL75, MD8) – In the food montage pictured, based on the clues provided by the names of items A-C, what is the full name (including geographic reference) of the item in the section labeled “D”?
This question was kind of a letdown for me. I thought it was going to be something tricky, like the type of puzzles featured in the “What Comes Fourth?” 1Ds, but this seemed straightforward to me. That’s a Boston Market in A, and Boston baked beans in the bottom left. Also, the dessert in D is clearly a Boston cream pie. I am confident I would have gotten it without the other pictures around it. Apparently, Boston lettuce is also a thing. With this get, I’m now 3 for 4.
After my visit to MIT in January, I wrote our first Boston quiz, which featured trivia about both C and D above. So, with Boston on the brain, time to write some more questions about Old Bay’s largest city. Enjoy!
