3. If I want to eat a cold soup, which one should I choose?

Answer: Vichyssoise

Vichyssoise is a thick velouté soup that is made of leeks, onions, potatoes, cream and chicken stock and is usually served cold. Although recipes of this soup were common in France much earlier, it was famously introduced in 1917 at the Ritz-Carlton hotel in New York by a French chef named Louis Diat.

It is very delicious and easy to make, so give it a try!

Antipasto is regarded as the start of a traditional Italian meal. It could consist of cured meats, mushrooms, olives and various cheeses among other things.

Primo is the first course and may include pasta, gnocchi or risotto. Contorno is a side dish served with the second course, secondo. Dolce is the dessert.

5. Which hobby is most likely to use a "watermark detector"?

Answer: Stamp collecting

A watermark is a design or image pressed into paper during the manufacturing process. Some watermarks are easily visible when the paper is held up to the light; others are more difficult to see. Watermarks are especially important to stamp collectors. Often two stamps that appear identical to the naked eye will vary greatly in value when the watermark of the paper on which they are printed is taken into account. Most collectors place the stamp into a black container filled with a liquid called "watermark fluid" to make the watermark visible.

There are also machines which do not require fluid to reveal the watermark.

6. A loaf of sourdough bread can be shaped into a round ball. What is this ball of bread called?

Answer: Boule

A common shape of a loaf of sourdough bread is a rounded ball from the French word 'boule' for ball. Sourdough starter replaces the yeast found in other breads to give it an acidic taste. Experienced bakers advise pulling out "wings" of dough and folding them over each other to make the rounded boule. Scoring the boule permits the escape of of steam during the bake.

7. Gosh I'm so tired. I just indulged in our annual Thanksgiving turkey dinner and have been overcome by that stuff in turkey that can make a person sleepy. What is it?

Answer: tryptophan

Actually, most meats contain tryptophan, but turkey, already high in the substance, is usually accompanied by many side dishes that are high in carbohydrates. The mashed and sweet potatoes, delicious rolls and pies all contribute to the sleepiness one feels.

The combination of foodstuffs in this feast metabolizes into serotonin and melatonin and thus, the overwhelming urge to take a nap.

8. While serving wine, what process removes the sediment from the liquid before drinking?

Answer: decantation

The incorrect answer options are three of the six changes of the state of water. Decantation in terms of wine-drinking is hardly a scientific process as one simply pours a portion of the liquid from the bottle into a decanter (a glass container) in order for the sediment to stay in the bottle and not get into the glasses of the drinkers. Aeration is said to be another benefit of decantation, but the degree to how much it is a benefit is debated.

Question by player kthnos
10. Which of these foods is (biologically) a vegetable, NOT a fruit?
