2/20/18 – Good vs. Evil


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.

It’s a brand new season, and I wish you all the best! Today’s post comes from an idea crafted by valued reader SeidlerA, and now I’m bringing it to you. Can you wrestle with the forces of good and evil by answering questions that are aligned for or against the world? Good luck!

1. Both angel food cake and devil’s food cake involve unique ingredients. Name the ingredient in angel food cake (formula KC4H5O6) that is added to stabilize the egg whites, and name the ingredient in devil’s food cake (formula NaHCO3) that is added to raise the pH of the cake and to give it a darker mahogany color.

Question 1

2. While often known as angel hair pasta, what Italian name, meaning “little hairs”, is the official name for this pasta?
