world's cuisines

Postby Guest » Sun Mar 27, 2005 10:53 pm

Are you interested in learning about other country's cuisines? If yes, take this quiz for fun... :D

1. Chapathi is a dish from
a. India
b. China
c. Cambodia
d. South Africa
Notes: Chapati or chapatti is a type of roti or *** bread.
It is made from a dough of atta flour, (from whole durum wheat), water and salt by rolling it out into discs of approximately 12 cm diameter and browning it on both sides on a very hot, dry cast-iron griddle or frying pan. It is then held very briefly (ca. 0.5 s) directly into an open flame, causing it to puff up with steam like a balloon.

2. Pavlova is a dish from
a. Australia
b. Austria
c. Great Britian
d. Denmark
Notes: Pavlova is a light and fluffy meringue dessert named after the ballet dancer, Anna Pavlova. Pavlova is made by beating egg-whites and salt to a very stiff consistency before folding in castor sugar, vanilla, and vinegar, and then slow-baking the mixture to dry all the moisture and create the meringue. This leaves the outside of the pavlova a crisp crunchy shell, while the interior remains soft and moist.

3. Pho (Beef noodle) is a dish from
a. Thailand
b. Laos
c. Vietnam
d. Malaysia
Notes: Pho (pronounced "fuh" in English) is a traditional **** noodle dish. It is composed of a thin white rice noodle, in a clear beef broth, with thin cuts of beef (steak, fatty flank, lean flank, brisket), tendon, tripe, meatballs, or other ingredients such as green onions, white onions, cilantro, basil leaves, lemon or lime, bean sprouts or chiles. In many restaurants, the last four items are usually provided on a separate plate, which allows customers to add as many or as few condiments to the broth soup as they desire. Some hot sauces can be applied to pho noodles as well.

4. Okonomiyaki is a dish from
a. The Philippines
b. Holland
c. Korea
d. Japan
Notes: Okonomiyaki is a type of **** pan-fried batter cake with various ingredients. The batter is based on flour, grated yam, water or dashi, egg and shredded cabbage, and usually contains other ingredients such as green onion, meat, squid, shrimp, vegetables, Kimchi, and cheese.

5. Ketfo is a dish from
a. Belgium
b. Ethiopia
c. German
d. South Africa
Notes: ketfo consists of raw (or rare) ground beef marinated in mitmita (very spicy chili powder) and niter kibbeh.

6. Paella is a dish from
a. Spain
b. France
c. Hungary
d. Poland
Notes: Paella is usually garnished with vegetables and with meat or seafood. The three main ingredients are rice, saffron, and olive oil.

7. Escargot is a dish from
a. France
b. Spain
c. Great Britain
d. Jamaica
Notes: Escargot is removed from the shell, stripped of its entrails, cooked (usually with garlic butter), then poured back into the shell with the butter and sauce for serving. Special plates with several snail-sized depressions are sometimes used.

8. Cachaça is a drink from
a. Brazil
b. Spain
c. France
d. Argentina
Notes: Cachaça is the most popular distilled alcoholic beverage in ****, made from sugarcane juice. Unlike tequila, cachaça, also a strong liquor, is better tasted slowly. Some cachaça tasters usually let the drink linger inside their mouths in order to feel the retro-taste, an important feature of the well-made cachaças. An Alternative way to drink cachaça is to put it inside a short and slim glass called martelinho ("little hammer"), and drink in one single shot. Often some lime juice is added to the cachaça. Bits of brown sugar cake (rapadura) are sometimes eaten between glasses.

9. Hangi is a dish from
a. Morocco
b. Cuba
c. India
d. New Zealand
Notes: Hangi (pronounced hung-ee), a pit in which meats or fish are cooked with vegetables. A deep hole is dug in the ground, lined with red-hot stones and covered with vegetation. The food is then placed on top. The whole oven is sprinkled with water and sealed with more vegetation. The hole is then filled with earth and left to steam for several hours. Traditionally, men dig and prepare the hole, and women prepare the food to go in it. All members of an extended family (whanau) help out for such a feast.

10. Gai yang is a dish from
a. China
b. Thailand
c. Korea
d. Japan
Notes: Gai yang or kai yang is a type of grilled or barbecued chicken originating in the Isan region of ***. The dish is now popular throughout the country.
