e92bfa3c1a10f685cce414caa91fd6b6

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.

Somehow, in the first week of LL78, there’s only been one food question, so let’s go to the tape:

LearnedLeague precedent (LL78, MD1) – Among the many cultivars of the species Brassica oleracea, which cultivar is the most common and popular one that is named after a European capital?

I didn’t know this for sure, but I took a good stab. “Cultivar” means fruit or vegetable, and the only one of those I could name after a European capital was the Brussels sprout, the right answer. Apparently, Brassica oleracea also contains broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, collard greens, and kale. I am now 1 for 1 this season.

Today’s quiz is a nice geography challenge. I’ll give you a picture of a food that is named for a world capital, you name the country that capital is found. Good luck!
