Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Boston, Massachusetts is a town rich in history, culture, higher education, sports, and food named after the town! There's Boston Cream Pie, actually a cake, and Boston clam chowder, also known as New England clam chowder. But Boston earned the nickname "Beantown" from its delicious bean recipe. What sweet and sticky sugar derivative can be added to regular baked beans in order to turn them into Boston Baked Beans?

Answer: Molasses (Treacle)

Molasses, or treacle, is generally made as a by-product in the refinement and extraction of sugar from sugar cane. Boston baked beans were first made in the early 18th century with the addition of molasses, as a byproduct of rum manufacturing, of which Boston was a major exporter. Maple syrup, similar to molasses, may also be used to create Boston baked beans.
2. There is a certain city in the US named after an animal. Additionally, this city is the namesake of a certain food, popular in bars, first made in the city. However, the food has nothing to do with the animal of the city's namesake, instead being made with a part of a chicken's anatomy. Marinated and soaked in a spicy sauce of cayenne pepper and vinegar, what is this delicious snack?

Answer: Buffalo Wings

Buffalo wings were first made in the city of Buffalo, New York in the mid-late 20th century, but there are numerous competing claims among local chefs as to who was the first to serve them. This spicy and messy dish, when soaked in the signature Buffalo sauce, is often tempered by dipping in ranch of blue cheese dressing. Caribou, Maine, Antelope, Montana, and Cougar, Washington are all cities in the United States with an animal name, but none have a specific food named after the town. Buffalo, New York, near the Canadian border, is the second largest city in New York State to New York City.
3. These little round greens in the cabbage family were first cultivated in Northern Europe, and the first written record of them dates back to 1587. As long as you have sufficient butter and salt, they can be tasty. Named after a European capital, what are these delicious vegetables?

Answer: Brussels Sprouts

Brussels Sprouts are an extremely healthy vegetable, very high in vitamin C and vitamin K. They also contain sulforaphane and indole-3-carbinole, two substances thought to prevent and block cancer growth. They are very popular in the city of Brussels, Belgium, from where the plant is thought to originate in the presently cultivated form.
4. Chicken Kiev is a delicious chicken dish named after the capital of the Ukraine, however many believe it was invented in Moscow in the early 1900's. To make chicken Kiev, a chicken cutlet is pounded, breaded, and either fried or baked, with which of the following fillings in the center?

Answer: Garlic Butter and Herbs

While any of the fillings listed as options would be delicious, traditional Chicken Kiev is made with fillings of garlic butter and herbs. For the choice of herbs, parsley, green onion, tarragon and dill weed are all popular. Once filled, the breaded chicken breast can be either baked or fried, but given the buttery center already, baking is the healthier option. Kiev, the capital of the Ukraine, is an old historic city, and the center of Kievan Rus, the predecessor to the Russian Empire.
5. This delicious dish is prepared by coating a beef fillet with pâté, mushrooms, onions or other spices, wrapping it in a pastry and baking. The perfect slice will be nice and juicy with a good bit of red in the center. Some believe that it was named after an English Field Marshal, Duke, and later Prime Minister. Others maintain that it was named after a New Zealand city. What is this delicious dish?

Answer: Beef Wellington

In addition to the fatty pâté topping, a traditional Beef Wellington is flavored with duxelles, a mixture of mushrooms, onions, shallots and herbs, and sautéed in butter. Besides adding the extra flavor to the pallet, the pastry in which the concoction is baked also helps keep the meat moist and juicy. Wellington, New Zealand, is the country's capital, and the southernmost capital in the world. Sometimes, the term "Wellington" can be added to other meats to describe similar dishes of meat baked into pastry, such as lamb Wellington.
6. Bologna Sausage can be made from any type of finely ground meat, but is usually made from beef, pork, turkey, or even a mix of all three! For the vegetarians, it can even be made of soy. It comes cooked, and generally pre-sliced, thick or thin, and is delicious in sandwiches. It was named after the city of Bologna, from where a similar sausage, Mortadella originated, in which of the following European nations?

Answer: Italy

Bologna, Italy, is famous for being the home to the oldest university in the world, the University of Bologna. It is also the place of origin of the sausage Mortadella, similar to modern bologna, but with visible chunks of fat. Bologna sausage is generally high in fat, finely ground into the meat mixture with no visible chunks, though low-fat options are readily available.

It is also generally high in sodium content. And like most sausages, it is generally made of less than prime cuts of meat, those pieces of meat that one would generally not eat unless finely ground up into sausage form.
7. When mixed with corn, this bean comprises the dish succotash, popular in the American South. On its own, it can be quite delicious, given sufficient butter and salt. And despite the fact that they are fat free and can help lower cholesterol, they are sometimes called butter beans. Originating in South America, which of the following cities gives these beans its namesake?

Answer: Lima, Peru

Grown for as many as 4,000 years, Lima beans were first cultivated by the native inhabitants of the high altitude Andes Mountains, in present day Peru. When exported by the conquering Spaniards, the shipments were labeled with the city of origin, Lima, Peru, and the city name was stuck to the bean.

They are high in soluble fiber, which is fantastic for preventing cholesterol from forming and clogging up the cardiovascular system. They are also high in magnesium and iron.
8. The term "hot dog" originated in the United States, but very similar delicious sausages are known by various names across the globe, some attached to a city-based toponym. One European variety of wiener resembles an American hot dog, but in North America they are traditionally cut much shorter and sold packed in tin cans. Wieners, meaning "from the city of Wien" as the namesake city is known in German, are also referred to as which of the following?

Answer: Vienna Sausages

The word "wiener," a common generalized name for a hot dog in the west, roughly translates into "from the city of Vienna" in German. Vienna, known as "Wien" in the native tongue, is the capital of Austria. The European style wiener, or Vienna sausage, is a long and slender sausage resembling a typical American hot dog. To differentiate in the United States and Canada, a Vienna sausage typically refers to a short variety, packed in tomato or chili sauce, sold pre-cooked and packaged in tin cans. They can be made from any type of ground meat, typically beef or pork, and mixed with mustard and other spices before stuffed in a thin casing, cooked, and canned.
9. A Denver omelette, named after the "mile high city" in the US State of Colorado, is sometimes called the "Southwest omelette." Topped with cheese, they generally contain, besides eggs obviously, onion, green pepper, and which of the following delicious meats?

Answer: Diced Ham

Though they sometimes can come with additional mixings, to make a truly classic Denver omelet, diced ham, onion, and chopped green peppers are a necessity. To give a Denver omelet extra kick, they are delicious when topped with salsa for that additional Southwestern zest. Sitting on the western edge of the Great Plains and at the foothills to the Rocky Mountains, Denver, Colorado serves as a gateway to many fantastic ski resorts.
10. There are many delicious beef dishes named after cities. Which of the following is commonly made with beef in modern times, but traditionally was made from rabbit or squirrel meat?

Answer: Brunswick Stew

Brunswick stew, with competing naming claims from Brunswick, Georgia and Brunswick County, Virginia, is a popular stew in the American South. Besides beef, squirrel or rabbit, it can also be made with pork or chicken. Tomato based, it also contains southern vegetables such as corn, lima beans, or okra. New York strip, commonly called club steak or just strip steak, is a cut from the short loin.

When left on the bone, combined with the filet mignon, it comprises the other half of a T-bone, or porterhouse. Philadelphia Cheesesteak contains beef traditionally sliced thin, sautéed, sometimes with other toppings such as onion and peppers, and served with cheese on a bun. London broil, ironically unknown in London, consists of a large roast of marinated flank steak, broiled, and best served sliced with a juicy red center.
