My friend Pinky has again challenged me in the food arena, posting another of her quizzes. I always answer 100%, and she is always 100% polite about my answers. We go together like warm croissants and honey.

  1. What is a rendang? It sounds rather like a hillbilly term, so is it a fancy name for road kill, spiced and grilled?
  2. What does “to butterfly” means? Make something look like a butterfly, spread it out and paint with highly coloured food dyes till it looks good enough to fly away?
  3. What is meadowsweet and what is it used for? A plant that makes wet meadows smell nicer than cowpats. It is an aid against arthritis.
  4. What does Mulligatawny means? According to Sous Chef it means double your money.
  5. What does the term “coats a spoon” means? For truly neurotic people, making little clothes for your cutlery.
  6. What is “Ouefs en Meurette”? Eggs in the style of Meurette, whoever she was/is?
  7. What are the main ingredients of paneer? It’s a soft white cheese from India; so maybe milk is the main ingredient
  8. What is the name of Nepal’s most favourite dish? Yummy (however they say that in Nepalese)
  9. What is the main ingredient of Chaas? Can’t fool me. Chaas is a milky drink, someone was talking about it las night.
  10. What do gazpacho, bouillabaisse and bisque have in common? I like soups like them 😉
