Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Crimini, chanterelle and enokitake.

Answer: Mushroom

Crimini, chanterelle and enokitake are all edible mushrooms. Crimini is a brown or white button-shaped mushroom native to Europe and North America. Chanterelle are golden coloured and the shape is more funneled. Cultivated enokitake, or enoki, is a thin white Japanese mushroom which grow in clumps.
2. Bird's eye, Madame Jeanette and cascabel.

Answer: Pepper

Bird's eye is a small, thin red chili pepper that grows on bushy shrubs. Madame Jeanette is a yellow pepper which originated in Suriname. It was believed to have been named after a famous Brazilian prostitute. Cascabel is a small chili which is normally grown in Mexico. When the chili is dried, the seeds inside rattle if shaken.
3. Lentil, peanut and lupin.

Answer: Legume

Lentils, peanuts and lupins are eaten in great quantity by vegetarians because they are high in nutrients, fiber and low in calories. Lupins are least known out of the three because they are more associated as being a garden flower. The beans can be pickled and eaten as a snack. They are becoming a popular alternative to soy as a cash crop.
4. Focaccia, Bara brith and pita.

Answer: Bread

Focaccia is an Italian bread which can be made plain or with added herbs, olive oil or cheese. Bara brith is a fruit bread which originates from Wales - bara means bread and brith means speckled in Welsh. Pita is a bread from the Middle East and has a 'pocket' which can be used to fill the bread with ingredients such as vegetables, cheese or even sweet fillings.
5. Pomegranate, elderberry and kumquat.

Answer: Fruit

Pomegranates grow on shrubs and small trees and are widely used in cookery, with the seeds appearing in many Middle Eastern dishes while the juice is often required for sauces, soups and dips as well as making a pleasant drink. Elderberries are often used to make fruit wine, while both the fruit and the associated flowers turn up in yoghurts and desserts. Kumquats are small orange-coloured citrus fruits often used as a decorative garnish.
6. Cassava, celeriac and parsnip.

Answer: Vegetable

The term 'vegetable' generally refers to parts of a plant used as a food stuff, with some notable exceptions such as fruits and nuts. Parsnips, celeriac and cassavas are all root vegetables. Parsnips resemble carrots, but are white in colour; celeriac is often known as celery root and commonly made into soup; and cassavas are a starchy tuber, which are a staple food in South America and Africa.
7. Appenzeller, Sage Derby and Esrom.

Answer: Cheese

Appenzeller has been made in Switzerland for at least seven hundred years, and has different coloured labels to denote for how long it has been aged. Sage Derby dates back to the seventeenth century and is a version of the English Derby cheese with the addition of sage for flavouring. Esrom is also known as Danish Port Salut, and was originally produced by the monks of Esrom Abbey.
8. Fennel, dill and borage.

Answer: Herbs

Used for flavouring food, herbs are the leaves, flowers and stems of plants and can be utilised either fresh or dried. Fennel is a member of the carrot family, and tastes of aniseed, Dill belongs to the same family as celery while borage is also known as starflower and originates from the Mediterranean area.
9. Lamprey, flounder and mahi-mahi.

Answer: Fish

Lampreys are a type of fish resembling eels, and can be found in most oceans of the world as well as some inland lakes and rivers. The flounder is a flat fish, which is found mainly on the sea bed, or sometimes in estuaries. The mahi-mahi is also known as the common dolphin fish and is another fish found in many places worldwide.
10. Nutmeg, cinnamon and saffron.
