I need to do a cookery quiz!

(8 Posts)

Hi all

We are getting together with friends for NYE and we are each doing a quiz (10 questions) based on a different topic. I've decided to do mine on cooking. The others aren't great cooks so nothing too avant garde, but i was thinking things like 'what is a bain marie used for', that kind of thing.

I would love your ideas for questions (and answers!) please!

TIA

When I say the others aren't great cooks what I mean is, they aren't particularly passionate about it, not that they are rubbish cooks!!! blush blush

At Robinson's in Stockport, a 9-gallon barrel is known as a 'kil', short for kilderkin, so you if you asked the question the other way round - what is the name for a 9-gallon barrel of beer, you could give bonus marks to clever clogs who knew both answers.
