1. Not many Serbs have eaten Jaretina, but those who have say it tastes like mutton, only better. What sort of meat is used for roasting Jaretina?

From Quiz
Bubble, Bubble....Burp!

Answer: kid meat

No, it's not human children flesh, it's meat of a young goat that is between one and two years old. Serbs don't eat cats and dogs, but it's possible to buy some sausages made of horse meat. Question supplied by zlajamilivojev

2. What type of fish eggs are traditionally eaten during New Year's celebrations in Japan?

From Quiz Incredible Edible Eggs

Answer: Herring

Although all types of fish eggs listed are edible, herring eggs are a New Year's specialty in Japan. The eggs are cooked and are usually eaten on their own, or they can be paired with rice on a New Year's menu. Herring eggs are known as kazunoko.

3. How long can honey remain edible if properly stored?

From Quiz Honey

Answer: Decades, perhaps even centuries

Leave it to the bees however to come up with what is probably the best preservation system for honey: leaving it sealed in its honeycomb.

4. Here we are in Cambodia. And here's a lady selling some tasty snacks in a basket. What do you think they are? If you had eight legs you could run away fast.

From Quiz Not For The Squeamish: Delicacies

Answer: Fried Tarantulas

Probably originating during the Khmer Rouge reign, when people were starving and ate what they could to survive, this dish was cheap and became quite popular. Pan-fried with garlic and salt, these critters are sold on the streets as snacks. Yum Yum. Remember insects have six legs and arachnids {spiders, mites, scorpions, etc} have eight.

5. The first food we shall look at is the national dish of Scotland. It consists of the heart, liver and lungs of a sheep, mixed with oatmeal, onion, spices, suet and salt and left to simmer in its own stomach. What is the name of this dish?

From Quiz Did You Seriously Just Eat That?

Answer: Haggis

Yes, the food in question is Haggis, probably the most well-known Scottish dish. As for the other choices, Finnan Haddie is smoked haddock, often served poached in milk, Forfar Bridie is a kind of meat pastry and Skirlie is a dish made of oatmeal, chopped onion and oil that can be used as stuffing or eaten on its own.

6. Andrew goes to Asia and eats Durian fruit. This fruit is known for its large size, its dangerous looking thorns and something else. What is it?

From Quiz "Bizarre Foods" with Andrew Zimmern Pt. 1

Answer: Its strange smell

The smell of this fruit is supposedly so bad, it is banned from many hotels and public transportation. Andrew described the taste as that of rotted onions, but many people love it.

7. What is a Rocky Mountain Oyster?

From Quiz You Really Gonna Eat That?

Answer: A testicle from a calf, boar or sheep

Fried, braised or poached, the younger, the more succulent! Pine nuts cost $4.00 per pound. Beer nuts cost $1.35 a pack. Deer nuts are just under a Buck!

8. There are an increasing number of people out there who believe it is more beneficial, and more nutritious, to feast on insects. Do you know what they are called?

From Quiz Man Eating Bugs!

Answer: Entomophagists

It's absolutely true! I was thinking about my daughter's nauseous collection of plastic insects, which she stores in a sweetie jar, when I decided to do some research. The funny thing is, as you'll find out - there's a quite an argument for trying this new cuisine!

9. Take your brains, fry them in some batter, serve on a toasted roll with mustard and a pickle, and you have a Brain Sandwich! Once very popular in the Midwest United States, what animals are used for the main ingredient?

From Quiz Bubble, Bubble....Burp!

Answer: Cows and pigs

Many cultures still use brains as a food source. In the U.S., the 1800s saw a rise in the use of brains, especially in the stockyard areas of the Midwest. When "Mad Cow Disease" broke out in the 1990s, some took it off the menu, while others substituted pig brains. My friend Hannibal likes them with some fava beans and a nice Chianti. Question supplied by mikegolden

10. In some countries, ant eggs are considered delicious. Which country refers to ant eggs as "escamoles"?

From Quiz Incredible Edible Eggs

Answer: Mexico

11. What does haggis consist of?

The offal is usually mixed with onion, spices, oatmeal, salt and stock, and boiled in the sheep's stomach for a few hours.

12. On which US holiday is the Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest held?

From Quiz Hot Dog!

Answer: Fourth of July

On July 4, 1916 there was a small hot dog eating contest at Nathan's first stand, between four immigrants, over who was the most patriotic. July is also National Hot Dog Month, which makes Independence Day a logical choice. In 1993, a one-on-one contest was held under Brooklyn Bridge between competitive eaters Michael DeVito and Orio Ito. A 1978 contest also occurred on Memorial Day.

13. This insect is a dangerous visitor in houses in the USA, but it can be a gourmet treat in other places. What insect is served fried and live?

From Quiz That Tastes Disgusting!

Answer: Termites

Live queen termites are a gourmet treat in Singapore. Go to South Africa if you'd rather have termites fried in oil.

14. This flower has a delicate and sweet flavor. It's used as a scent for teas, a flavoring for teas and as a syrup.

From Quiz Please, Don't Eat the Daisies!

Answer: Jasmine

Jasmine is used for scenting teas. For the flavoring of tea, both green and Oolong tea are used and it takes about four hours for the jasmine to blend with the tea. The flower is a very fragrant and its leaves are oval and shiny while the flowers are tubular and waxy-white. Jasmine syrup is an ingredient that is used in the production of both scones and marshmallows.

15. In 1885, Englishman Vincent M. Holt published a pamphlet entitled "Why Not Eat Insects?". In this, he lists certain menus, one of which includes 'Fried Soles with Woodlouse Sauce'. What is the term for insect eating?

From Quiz You Can't Eat That! Can You?

Answer: Entomophagy

Heston Blumanthal referred to this book in his Channel 4 programme "Heston's Victorian Feast". The book also includes other insect delights, such as 'Moths on Toast' and 'Cauliflowers Garnished with Caterpillars'. Vincent Holt described the taste of woodlouse as a 'superior shrimp'. 'Myrmecophagy' is eating ants, 'xerophagy' is being made to eat bread and water as a means of punishment, and 'autophagy' can be a term for eating oneself.

16. This member of the brassica family features highly on the hate list. Which vegetable has varieties that include Bosworth, Falstaff and Bedford Fillbasket?

From Quiz Yeuch! I'm Not Eating THAT!

Answer: Brussels sprouts

The poor maligned sprout is rich in vitamins, fibre and phytonutrients. Overcooking sprouts leads to an unpleasant sulphuric aroma (both during and after eating) and also enhances their slightly bitter taste, which is probably why they are so disliked. The average child will not fall for the line that they are "Fairy Cabbages" Sprout-haters in the USA can blame French settlers for introducing them in the late eighteenth/early nineteenth centuries.

17. There is another poison in this quartet. But which one?

From Quiz Don't Eat Me

Answer: Aconite

Aceto is vinegar. Aioli is a beautiful, garlic mayonnaise from Provence in France. Arancia is the Italian for orange. Aconite (monkshood), contains a deadly poison.

18. Which part of the alligator is generally regarded as the best?

From Quiz You Really Gonna Eat That?

Answer: The white tail meat

White tail meat is tender and similar to veal. The body meat is pink, tougher and stronger flavored. The black tail meat is only suitable for braising.

19. Do you realise that 100 grams of cricket contains ...?

From Quiz Man Eating Bugs!

Answer: 121 calories and 12.9 grams of protein

If you compare 100 grams of cricket with 100 grams of beef, chicken or lamb ... you'd probably ingest less fat and equally the same amount of protein! Buy yourself a fishing net and 'hop' off to grab a few!

20. What colour are emu eggshells?

From Quiz Incredible Edible Eggs

Answer: Dark blue-green

Emu eggs are very popular in Australia where the birds are native. Each emu egg can weigh as much as two pounds (nine hundred grams), and have the equivalent of a dozen chicken eggs in each. Those who try them often report that they have a much more delicate flavour than chicken eggs.

21. This red fruit is sometimes used as a topping. It is usually small-diced and added on top especially if the nachos also have shredded lettuce. What 'fruit' am I adding to this appetizer?

From Quiz The Wonderful World of Nachos

Answer: Tomato

Culinary folks consider tomatoes a vegetable but botanically it is actually a fruit. I love tomatoes on my nachos but only if they are ripe and in season. Many restaurants use salsa instead of tomatoes. Some even use both!

22. At which theme park, with a food-related name, is the Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest held?

From Quiz Hot Dog!

Answer: Coney Island

The Long Island theme park is home to the first and most famous Nathan's restaurant, at the corner of Surf and Stillwell Avenues in south Brooklyn. The contest starts at noon, and has been broadcast on ESPN since 2004. The event brought a new record in 2011, of over 40,000, to the small community on the Atlantic Ocean shore.

23. This food is made from burying fish in salt. The fish literally digest themselves, and the liquid is drained and used in Vietnamese cuisine. What is this "fish sauce"?

From Quiz That Tastes Disgusting!

Answer: Nuoc Mam

Nuoc Mam is to Vietnamese cooking as Soy is to Chinese cooking. The Vietnamese usually make it with anchovies and salt. Rakorret is a Norwegian sauce, Mahyawa is Arabic and Garum was used by ancient Romans.

24. Bees make honey from nectar through a process called what?

From Quiz Honey

Answer: Regurgitation

Bees, working as a group, ingest and regurgitate the nectar a number of times until it is the desired quality.

25. Over to the Phillipines now, and we run into another street vendor, selling boiled eggs. Seems harmless enough. Eeewwww, what's in this thing called 'Balut'?

From Quiz Not For The Squeamish: Delicacies

Answer: A partially formed chicken embryo

Well, what would you expect in an egg? These fertilized eggs are boiled a day or so prior to hatching {there are inaccuracies}, so the first taste you get is a bit of yolk and then you can crunch up the tiny chicken or duck. Feeling queasy? Let us venture north then.

26. George and Andrew have finally arrived to join Ralph the Llama for dinner, and Ralph has ordered an appetizer course of grilled nopales. On what desert delicacy will they be dining?

From Quiz Wham-Bam, Thank You Spam

Answer: Prickly pear cactus pads

Nopales are the fleshy pads from the prickly pear cactus plant. They can be prepared in a number of ways but are most often encountered in boiled or grilled strips with the spines removed. They have a rather mild flavor, somewhat like a green bean or a green pepper, and their cooked texture is somewhat like okra. Nopales have been touted for their health benefits - they are high in several vitamins and minerals, such as Vitamin C and manganese, and have traditionally been used as a laxative and hangover remedy. They are also being studied for use in treatment of diabetes. Ralph the Llama had ordered nopales because he thought that George and Andrew would appreciate having a popular New Mexican dish. Ralph had decided to order nopales earlier in the day but when they arrived he realised that 'Nothing looks the same in the light'. However, it turned out that George had once tried a dish of nopales and Spam and rather liked it, and they all enjoyed the grilled nopales. PDAZ has also been known to enjoy nopales.

27. Surprisingly, this flower has a lemony flavor.

From Quiz Please, Don't Eat the Daisies!

Answer: Lilac

The beautiful and aromatic lilac is floral and pungent but has a lemony flavor as well. The lilac is wonderful in salads. It can be crystallized and used with egg whites and sugar. The flowers can be candied and used to make wine.

28. Uncle Umberto, from the Italian branch of the family, can't get enough of his favourite dessert-Zabaglione. Unfortunately for him, he found out too late that it contained Prussic Acid instead of wine. What wine should have been used?

From Quiz Pick Your Poison

Answer: Marsala

Marsala comes from the town and port in Sicily and was first popularised by the British Navy when Nelson ordered barrels of it for the officers of his Fleet based in Naples. Later a regular shipment was set up between the port and Liverpool, to supply the huge demand for this popular, fortified dessert wine.

29. In which country, the largest city of which is Ho Chi Minh City, do they serve Thit Cho Hap (steamed dog meat) and Cho Xao Sa Ot (fried dog meat) in lemon grass and chili?

From Quiz 'They Eat Dogs Here'

Answer: Vietnam

In Vietnam it is thought that eating dog meat prior to a new moon brings good luck. Dogs are primarily eaten in Northern Vietnam and women seldom eat the meat as it is frowned upon for them to do so. In Vietnam, as in other countries, eating dog meat is said to increase the virility in a man. In 2009, it transpired that dog meat was one of the predominant 'carriers' of a bacteria causing a cholera epidemic in Northern Vietnam.

30. In Morocco, Andrew visits 'Lamb Alley', where any and all parts of the animal are available for consumption. What item did he describe as tasting like, "The very essence of the barnyard"?

From Quiz "Bizarre Foods" with Andrew Zimmern Pt. 1

Answer: The roasted eyeball

He does sample all of these items, (the ear is considered a delicacy despite its texture and the brains are described as creamy and tender) but the roasted eyeball was particularly impressive.
