Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. What flavouring gives Italian delights such as Amaretto liqueur and amaretti cookies their distinctive taste and smell?

Answer: almond

Amaretto means "a little bitter", referring to the bitter almonds used in its making. The dark-coloured, sweet liqueur, which can be drunk on its own or used in cocktails or desserts, originated in the town of Saronno (Lombardy), probably in the 15th century.

Some commercial brands, however, use apricot kernel oil rather than bitter almonds as a flavouring, making the liqueur safe to drink for those who are allergic to nuts. Amaretti cookies, also from Saronno, are dry, crumbly macaroons made with sugar, egg whites, almonds and apricot kernels.

2. The Burgundy snail is an edible delicacy. It is sometimes called the Roman snail or even the edible snail. Generally speaking though, by what French name is this snail called in English?

Answer: Escargot

Snail, a delicacy by European standards. Helix pomatia, a common European snail, has been eaten by humans for thousands of years since Greek and Roman times. Over time it has been given several names in English: Roman snail, Burgundy snail, edible snail, but none so vulgar as just calling it "escargot", the French word for "snail". This large snail is not easy to farm, however, it is still gathered for cooking in many countries all around Europe.

All of the incorrect answers were also the word for snail, but in Arabic, Greek, and Hebrew.

4. Which flower, a member of the aster family, shares its name with the girlfriend of a popular cartoon character?

Answer: Daisy

All the choices are girls' names, but only one, Daisy, is also a flower in the Asteraceae (aster) family, a large plant family which includes sunflowers and marigolds, among others. Daisy Duck is the girlfriend of Donald Duck, who was created by Walt Disney in 1934 and voiced by voice actor Clarence Nash. Daisy Duck was a later Disney creation and was first introduced in 1940 in the film 'Mr Duck Steps Out'. Unlike Donald, she has been voiced by several actors over the years, although Clarence Nash voiced her originally in 'Mr Duck Steps Out'. Daisy has appeared with Donald and his family in several Disney films and also in the comic strips.

5. From what braided fabric are candle wicks made?

Answer: Cotton

Braided cotton is typically used for candle wicks. The wick braid can be made flat so that it will burn itself out. You may sometimes see a metal wire running through the braid. This gives the wick some stiffness while keeping the flame higher from the wax. Depending on the type, purpose or size of the candle, the wick may have a metal base, a bottom seal or just end in a stub.

8. When purchasing mussels, is it okay for them to be open?

Answer: No, they must be closed.

Steamers are okay to cook if they are open. Clams, mussels and quahogs, however, must be closed. If open, the animal inside has died, making them inedible. If a mussel is only partially opened, tap it, a live one will immediately close.

9. The Joker in a deck of Queen's Slipper brand playing cards, designed and produced in Australia, depicts what native creature whose laughter can be contagious?

Answer: Kookaburra

The territorial call of the Australian kookaburra sounds uncannily like human laughter and is VERY LOUD. When one starts up, other nearby kookaburra birds often join in. You might be reminded of the children's song that begins, "Kookaburra sits in the old gum tree. . ."

Question by player SonOfSaradoc
10. The red grape variety "Pinotage" was first bred in which wine producing country better known for its wildlife?

Answer: South Africa

First bred in Stellenbosch, South Africa in 1925 by Professor Abraham Perold, Pinotage is a cross between the two varietals, Pinot Noir and Cinsaut. Cinsaut is also known as Hermitage in some countries, hence the name "Pinotage". The name was first used on a wine label in 1961 when the Stellenbosch Farmers' Winery sold a wine from the 1959 harvest called "Lanzerac Pinotage". Pinotage is one of only five foreign varieties approved to be grown in France for the production of wine.
