I'm making up a quiz for work. The two contestants are chefs and I need to ask them one question each on their specialist subject. My cooking knowlege is a little, er, homely so I'm drawing a blank.

Any ideas? Not too difficult.

Thanks.

I would go for something like 'how much would you expect to pay for Asda turkey twizzlers'

Would you Feisty?

Adult chefs or kid/young chefs?

Gourmet or microwave chefs?

Some questions here . Are they about the right standard, or too difficult/easy?

Adults Notherner.
Jackie thanks. Those are great.

Actually, those might be a bit too easy on reflection.

Any more for any more?

How about these on 'How green is your food?'

Hmm, tricky. I'd be tempted to ask things such as:

What are the main ingredients of xxxxx (insert dish)

What is the English translation for Foie gras?

Who was firts British Chef to get 3 Michelin Stars?

I would ask them questions like

'what does florentine refer to when in the title of a dish'? Answer 'spinach'

What is sauce bigarade? A sauce made from meat jus with the juice and zest of oranges usually served with duck.

What are the main ingredients used in a cassoulet? Sausage, white beans and confit of duck/goose fat (actually can't remember tbh)

Those are the sort of things that they should have learnt at chef college
