This isn’t a ‘daily food quiz’ (as the picture above might suggest), but rather.. a random Q&A so I can share some of my foodie facts & trivia with you.. with the hope that you might participate and answer foodie questions about yourself in the comment section??? The above ‘quiz photo’ is from a Facebook application, being ‘Restaurant City’ (which I play)! On RC there is a daily food question.. and it’s usually easier than this chilli question. The questions I usually get wrong refer to cuts of meat.. for example whereabouts on a cow is “Chuck Steak?” for example (front, middle or back)? I did study butchery (as part of hospitality studies years ago).. but I obviously didn’t retain everything.
The Naga Jolokia chilli – hottest in the world.
I’ve sourced these questions from the internet to kickstart todays Q&A.. so here we go! And won’t you consider having “a go”?
What are your staples (ie. name some things you’d always find in your fridge or pantry)?
Rice bran oil (bottle and spray), jasmine rice, light soy sauce, white pepper, Maldon sea salt, tuna in olive oil (little tins usually), Gravity coffee beans, brown onions, free range omega 3 eggs, Kraft ‘FREE’ cheese slices, mature chedder (slices or block), Flora buttery, low fat milk (used to be skim, but it’s no good for milk texturing when using our coffee machine), shaved ham, Weight Watchers sour cream, Paul’s plain skim yoghurt (to serve with curries or make dressings), whole egg mayonnaise, chicken fillets (thigh or breast), banana’s, tinned cherry tomatoes and many jars & bottles of condiments.
What are you indulgences?
Eating out, flavoured oils, expensive nuts & churros with chocolate sauce. Oh, and the crisp, choc coating you can get on vanilla icecream (even though I’m not a huge icecream fan). For this reason, ‘Ice Magic’ is a dangerous thing to have in my house.
What (foodie related thing) can’t you live without?
Cookbooks, cooking magazines, cooking shows, fresh or dried herbs & spices, Maldon salt & coffee.
What (in your house) is past its ‘Use By’ or ‘Expiry’ date?
Lettuce and/or salad greens. Always.
