  20. 20. • The company maintains that it was the prize given to this brand for being “America’s Best”, awarded at the Chicago World’s Fair in 1893 (although this story is disputed – contemporary accounts maintain that the award consisted merely of a bronze medal). • Much more likely is the fact that the company’s founder, Frederick __1__, had the rather inspired idea of tying strips of coloured silk around each bottle following the World’s Fair win. Although this proved expensive, the tactic worked, as patrons soon began asking their bartenders for the __2__ ___3___ brand. • This is the muddled origin of the symbol of quality present in what brand name?
  21. 21. Blank
  22. 22. • The source of the blue ribbon in Pabst Blue Ribbon.
  23. 23. • Big League Chew is a brand of shredded bubble gum that was created in the late 1970s by Rob Nelson and sold to the Wrigley company by his friend Jim Bouton. Nelson and Bouton shared a profession, one in which the use of a particular dangerous but addictive substance was rampant at the time, and so they designed this gum to mimic the look and texture of said substance. • Thanks to their efforts, this use of this substance has lessened considerably among their fellow professionals over the years (although some traditionalists still cling to old, carcinogenic habits). • What profession? What habit has decreased, thanks in part to this product?
  24. 24. Blank
  25. 25. • The use of chewing tobacco among baseball players has lessened, thanks in part to Big League Chew.
  26. 26. • Rectangular-shaped deep dish pizza is sometimes called _______-style pizza, as opposed to the round varieties seen in other American cities. • This is due to the fact that pizzerias in _______ (once the fourth most populous city in America) did not want to spend money on pizza pans; instead, they improvised and used industrial parts trays, which are meant to hold small mechanical parts in factories. Fill in the blanks.
  27. 27. Blank
  28. 28. • Detroit-style pizza
  29. 29. • The earliest version of this confectionery originated in Italy in the 15th century. At the time, making this treat by hand was an expensive, labour-intensive endeavour, and hence the final product was not often available to the general public; only small quantities were produced, and it was most often used as a garnish for other desserts. • As in the case of aluminium, though, once a new manufacturing process was introduced and the whole operation was mechanized, what was once a very precious commodity plummeted in cost almost overnight. In this case, the machine (invented in 1897 and essentially unchanged to this day) consists of a small, perforated drum into which the raw material is placed and heated while simultaneously being rapidly spun. • What item of confectionery, now available worldwide?
  30. 30. Blank
  31. 31. • Cotton candy/candy floss
  32. 32. • As defined by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, “slack-fill” is the difference between the actual capacity of a container and the volume of product contained therein. Manufacturers of most food products can be fined by the FDA and sued by consumers for excessive slack-fill in their packaging. • However, one category of food products is immune to slack-fill regulations in America, much to the chagrin of consumers. Manufacturers of these products claim that the packaging methods they use are vital to the integrity of their product in the hands of end consumers, and that the method is commonly used throughout the world. What category? What packaging method?
  33. 33. Blank
  34. 34. • This is the reason why potato chips are sold in inflated, excessively large bags, a practice sometimes known as “selling air”.
  35. 35. • The Whole30 Diet is an American diet fad, created in 2015 by sports nutritionist Melissa Hartwig, that is a strange combination of the Paleolithic diet and the ketogenic diet. • Whole30 would go unnoticed, along with dozens of other diet fads, but for one bizarre-sounding fact. The diet features in this quiz because one of its cornerstones is the consumption of a substance which would be anathema to dieters in this part of the world. What substance?
  36. 36. Blank
  37. 37. • Ghee
  38. 38. • ______ is a German company, founded by Hans Riegel Sr. in 1920, in his hometown of Bonn. • Credited with inventing the gummy bear in 1922, the company is today the largest manufacturer of gummy candy (which now includes items such as gummy worms, gummy cola and gummy fruits) in the world, and is advertised with the slogan “Kids and grown-ups love it so – the happy world of ______”.

The bacteria metabolises the lactic acid present in the immature Emmental, and naturally produces carbon dioxide. The gas collects in dozens of different areas throughout the body of the Emmental block, and thus the __1__ are formed. • The number and size of the __1__ present in __2__ ___3___ can be controlled by changing the acidity, temperature and curing time of the immature __2__ ___3___. Historically seen as a sign of imperfection, it is only relatively recently that __1__ have been regarded as a hallmark of genuine __2__ ___3___. Fill in the blanks.
  42. 42. Blank
  43. 43. • This is how the eyes (or holes) in Swiss cheese are formed.
  44. 44. • The Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Whiskey distillery in Lynchburg, Tennessee produces roughly 11 million bottles of whiskey a year, in the process using thousands of white oak whiskey barrels for aging the liquor. • Once these barrels have outlived their usefulness, the distillery sells most of them to other alcohol manufacturers, such as the Glenmorangie distillery in Scotland and the Mount Gay Rum Company of Barbados, which use the barrels to impart flavour to their own spirits. • A certain number of used Jack Daniel’s barrels, however, are set aside every year for purchase by another southern U.S. company, who use the barrels in their own three-year aging process (although the end product is non-alcoholic). Name this other company, and the iconic American food product it manufactures using retired Jack Daniel’s Whiskey barrels.

What was the punny headline?
  48. 48. Blank
  49. 49. • All the Food That’s Fit to Print
  50. 50. • What concept in modern day restaurants & hotel kitchens was created thanks to the fact that Auguste Escoffier worked as an Army Chef during the Franco-Prussian War? • While in the service, Escoffier thought he could apply what he noticed in the army, to gain more efficiency and reduce duplication of effort.
  51. 51. Blank

  53. 53. List-It
  54. 54. • Under the title “Legendary Outlets”, the restaurant search website Zomato.com lists restaurants that have operated for several decades, and which have remained popular with generations of customers. • The list of Legendary Outlets for Bangalore consists of 27 entries, of which the majority are vegetarian restaurants such as MTR, CTR, Vidyarthi Bhavan, etc. Only 11 of these 27 entities (five of which have multiple outlets across the city) serve non-vegetarian food.

  59. 59. • It is one of this city’s signature dishes. The locals have a romantic explanation, linking the dish to the construction of the city’s cathedral. Legend has it that on the wedding day of the master glazier’s daughter, a young apprentice – nicknamed Zafferano, on account of the vibrant colours he achieved by adding saffron to the stained-glass pigments – hit upon the idea of sprinkling it into a wedding dish, turning it as golden as the cathedral’s windows. • The dish consists of carnaroli fried with onion finely diced and softened to glistening translucency in butter. Next, a good, home-made chicken or beef stock is kept simmering and ladled onto the carnaroli, little by little, until fully absorbed. Which dish, and what city?

According to legend, the composer insisted on overseeing the preparation of this dish near his table. The chef became increasingly irritated with his customer’s constant interference, whereupon the maestro told him “So, turn your back”, which was somehow corrupted into ____1____. • This version of how the dish received its name is disputed, so we may never know for sure. But it is true that the combination of pan fried tenderloin, served over a crouton topped with fresh foie gras, and garnished with demi-glace or Madeira sauce and topped with truffles is a gastronomic opus worthy of the maestro ___2___. All it’s missing, perhaps, is an apple balanced on top of it. Fill in the blanks.

  65. 65. • Dr Kripa Varanasi of MIT has developed a database of recipes that have good lubricating properties when stored in containers made of a wide range of materials.

They established dak bungalows across the country both as staging posts for the mail and as accommodation for travellers. This meant they had to provide food and for the British, which in turn meant meat.

  69. 69. Blank
  70. 70. • X: Chicken • Y: Eggs • Z: Omelette
  71. 71. • Cesar Ritz started a campaign for dining in the evening by enlisting the help of Lillie Langtry in 1890. Gradually, it became more chic for men and women to be seen at the Savoy Restaurant than in their own homes. At the Savoy, they mingled with actors and actresses (Sarah Bernhardt), opera divas (Nellie Melba), composers (Sir Arthur Sullivan) and other artists. Now, the main purpose of enlisting the highly influential Lillie Langtry (who was a socialite, mistress of the future Edward VII and stage superstar) was to get one bit of puritanical regulation changed. What regulation?
  72. 72. Blank
  73. 73. • In England & large parts of Europe, bars and restaurants stopped serving liquor at 7 p.m. Lillie Langtry used her influence to secure an alteration to the regulations, and thus liquor could be served until 12:30 in the morning.
  74. 74. • Chanko Kawasaki is perhaps the only restaurant in Tokyo still serving the genuine article. • Tadashi Kawasaki’s chanko is a delicately flavored chicken broth enriched with carrots, burdock, tofu, welsh onion, daikon, cabbage, abura-age tofu, and cellophane noodles.

  75. 75. Blank
  76. 76. • Chanko is the dish served to Sumo wrestlers to shore up weight. Chanko Kawasaki is run by a family of Sumo wrestlers specializing in this food.

  78. 78. Blank
  79. 79. Smokehouse Deli
  80. 80. • The Uddina Vada was traditionally made during death ceremonies but in the recent past has been a staple as festival food down south! Its made of Urad Dal. • Historians today believe that this food item is proof of a certain change in the habits of Brahmins which took place around 500BC. What change, and what historic event was responsible for it?
  81. 81. Blank
  82. 82. • The advent of Jainism caused Brahmins to turn vegetarian. The Uddina vada was prepared to make up for protein lost due to the non-intake of meat.
  83. 83. • Cuisses de Nymphs à l'Aurore is a dish that gives no clue as to what is in the dish. This subterfuge was done on purpose. It translates to “Thighs of the Nymphs of Dawn”, and was euphemistically named to trick 600 guests at a soirée, held in 1908 at the London Savoy in honour of the Prince of Wales (the future King George V), into eating a food that was not popular with the English. • The French, however, had been eating this since prehistoric times. In fact, in the Tenth Century, French monks got this classified as a fish to get around Lenten prohibitions on meat, and this classification has stuck in the culinary world to the present time. The dish was a sensation, and so Cuisses became a great hit that London social season. • What’s the common two-word name for this dish?
  84. 84. • Frog Legs
  85. 85. • When spelt as 2 words, this name refers to the small seedless black dried grapes from Corinth, west of Athens. That’s also the origin of one part of the 2 word name. • Spelt as one word, however, it refers to to the berries from a shrub, Ribes nigrum, which grows in the cold of northern Europe and Asia. They have nothing to do with the grapes, apart from looking a bit like them when dried. • Perhaps the confusion came from an attempt to pass off the northern berries for the sweet southern fruit, or perhaps English was just lazy about making the distinction between the two. The French, more precisely, call the berries ‘cassis’ and the dried grapes ‘raisins de Corinthe’. They use the berries in a liqueur, crème de cassis, which makes one of the best wine cocktails when added to white wine to make Kirs (and to champagne to make Kir Royales). The dried grapes go in desserts. • What two fruits?
  86. 86. Blank
  87. 87. • Black currants, blackcurrants
  88. 88. • All the big multinational brands like Aunt Jemima, Hungry Jack, Mrs Butterworth etc make a product that is composed mainly of high fructose corn syrup, and flavour it with a synthetic industrial molecule called Soloton. This is sold as ______ Flavoured Syrup. What big fraud?
  89. 89. Blank
  90. 90. • Maple Syrup that is sold by most brands has never even been close to a maple tree!
  91. 91. • King Stanislas I of Poland was exiled to Lorraine in 1737, where he held the title of Duke. During that period, he was responsible for the creation and/or popularisation of 3 enduring desserts. • He dipped stale bread in rum, topped it with cream and named the result after his favourite fictional character. He also introduced to French royalty a labour-intensive recipe that had been devised by one of his Polish cooks. Thirdly, he was so impressed with the shell- like cakes baked by a peasant girl from Commercy that he named them after her. Name all three.
  92. 92. Blank
  93. 93. • Rum Baba (From Ali baba & forty thieves) • Meringue • Madeleine
