Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. The cocktail in the photo was named for a fifteenth century Venetian with the first name of Giovanni. In which area did he make his name?

Answer: Painting

The Bellini cocktail consists of sparkling white wine mixed with peach puree, and was named by its creator, Guiseppe Cipriani, after Giovanni Bellini, a Renaissance artist. Bellini was one of the early artists of the period, and was the teacher of both Titian and Giorgione. Among Bellini's works are 'The Ecstasy of St. Francis' and 'Head of the Baptist'.
2. The dish pictured is believed by many to be named for the victor of a famous 1815 battle. By what name is he normally remembered?

Answer: Duke of Wellington

Beef Wellington is fillet steak, topped with pâté and mushrooms, cooked in a pastry case. It may, or may not, have been named for the victor of the Battle of Waterloo, but they definitely share a name.

Arthur Wellesley was born in Ireland and joined the army as an ensign at the age of eighteen. He proved himself an able soldier, and fought in several campaigns, in India and during the Napoleonic Wars. Wellesley was the commander at the Battle of Waterloo, the decisive battle which brought an end to Napoleon's ambitions. For his success, Wellesley was created the lst Duke of Wellington, and then followed a career in politics. He became Prime Minister on two occasions - from 1828 until 1830, and again, very briefly, in 1834.
3. The rather tempting looking ice cream pictured contains cherries and is named, by its creators Ben and Jerry, for a founder member of which well known American rock band?

Answer: Grateful Dead

Named for Jerry Garcia, the ice cream is cherry flavoured, and contains cherries and dark chocolate.

Garcia founded the Grateful Dead in 1965 with Bob Weir, Bill Kreutzmann, Phil Lesh and Ron McKernan, who was known as Pigpen. The band toured more or less constantly for the next thirty years, until Garcia's death from a heart attack in 1995. The surviving members continued to perform, together and separately, under various names, and their fans, known as Deadheads, remain loyal to a band which celebrated its fiftieth anniversary in 2015.
4. Which monarch was reported to be rather fond of the cake in the picture, which is named after her? She reigned for many years, so it clearly did her no harm.

Answer: Queen Victoria

The Victoria sponge, or Victoria sandwich, consists of two cakes with a filling of jam and cream. The top can be dusted with icing sugar or caster sugar, or left plain. The cake is probably the best known of the many foods named for the queen.

Victoria came to the British throne in 1837, less than a month after her eighteenth birthday, in succession to her uncle, William IV. Her reign lasted until just into the twentieth century - she died at the age of 81 in 1901. Her marriage to Prince Albert was fruitful, and she gave birth to nine children in all. The death of her husband in 1861 caused her to withdraw from public life and her dour and severe appearance as a widow tends to be the way most people picture her.
5. The original name of several members of the British Royal family, including Prince Charles's honorary godfather, was the same as that borne by the cake pictured. What anglicised version of the name did they adopt during the First World War?

Answer: Mountbatten

The cake is a Battenberg, consisting of two different colours of sponge cake covered with marzipan.

The Grand Duchy of Hesse, in Germany, was ruled by the Battenberg family, several members of whom married into various European royal families. They included Princess Alice of Battenberg, who married Prince Andrew of Greece and Denmark, the parents of Prince Philip, husband of Queen Elizabeth II. Because of anti-German feelings caused by the Great War, many family members changed their name to Mountbatten in 1917. Louis Mountbatten, lst Earl Mountbatten of Burma, who was a confidant of the Prince of Wales, was originally Prince Louis of Battenberg.
6. The dessert in the photograph originated 'Down Under' in either Australia or New Zealand, who both claim it. What was the occupation of the woman for whom it was named?

Answer: Ballerina

The pavlova is made from meringue topped with cream and fruit of various kinds. It is generally accepted that it was named in honour of the ballerina Anna Pavlova.

Pavlova was born in St. Petersburg in what was then the Russian Empire. She began her official ballet training at the age of ten, and overcame certain physical difficulties by hard work and dedication. She performed the role of 'The Dying Swan', created for her by Mikhail Fokine, for the first time in 1905 and went on to dance the same piece several thousand times through her career. Pavlova died in 1931, just before her fiftieth birthday.
7. Which woman had four dishes, including the one pictured, named for her by the chef Auguste Escoffier?

Answer: Nellie Melba

The picture shows the very dry toast named Melba toast, and Dame Nellie also had a sweet sauce, a stuffed tomato recipe and, probably the best known of all, the peach and ice cream dessert named Peach Melba named for her.

Helen Porter Mitchell was born in Melbourne, and took a variation of her home's name for her stage name. She was one of the best known opera singers of her era - the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Melba sang at London's Covent Garden, in New York at the Metropolitan Opera and at the Paris Opera among many other venues. She was created a Dame in 1918 in recognition of her work in charity fund raising during the war, and died back at home in Australia in 1931.
8. Although the origins of its name are disputed, there is no argument that the drink pictured shares the name with which Queen's nickname?

Answer: Mary I

The Bloody Mary cocktail is made from vodka and tomato juice, with various other things added, and often garnished with vegetables including carrots and celery.

Mary I is only one candidate for the name of the cocktail, but her nickname was well earned. She came to the English throne after her father, Henry VIII, had separated from the Roman Catholic church, and her brother, Edward VI, who preceded her on the throne, was also Protestant. Mary was firmly of the Roman Catholic faith followed by her mother, Catherine of Aragon, and her reign of only five years saw nearly three hundred Protestants burned at the stake. Elizabeth I became queen in 1558 and restored the Protestant faith.
9. The steak dish in the photograph does not include an apple, or a white horse, but it is named for which Italian composer of the nineteenth century?

Answer: Rossini

The tournedos Rossini consists of a fillet steak topped with pâté and served on a crouton.

Gioachino Antonio Rossini was active as a composer in the early nineteenth century, and his best known works include 'The Barber of Seville' and 'Otello', which both premiered in 1816. The piece which most people, even those who know no opera, would recognise is the overture to William Tell, an opera from 1829. Parts of this have been used in various works, such as in the film 'A Clockwork Orange' (1971). A speeded up version was used as the theme tune to 'The Lone Ranger' on both radio and television. The question hinted at this with the white horse, and, in legend, William Tell was said to have shot an apple from his son's head.
10. The biscuit pictured was named for one of the prime movers in the struggle to unify the country of Italy. Which of these is it?

Answer: Giuseppe Garibaldi

The Garibaldi biscuit was created in 1861 and named for the human Garibaldi, who had visited England in 1854. The biscuits are a sort of currant sandwich, with the dried fruit in the middle of two layers of crunchy biscuit.

Giuseppe Garibaldi was a soldier who fought in many of the battles of the mid nineteenth century in the period known as the 'Risorgimento' - resurgence in English. Italy was still divided into individual states, such as Tuscany and Venice, at the time. The major battles ended by 1870, with Rome becoming the capital, although not all regions were part of a unified Italy until the next century. Garibaldi is considered to be one of the founding fathers of the country.
