    This food-trivia game is modeled after the famous game show.

    The rules are simple. It's just like the show. Each player will post an answer to the previous player's question, along with a question for the next player. For example:

    1st post: This cheese often comes pre-grated in green cans.
    2nd post: What is Parmesan?

    This coffee-laden Italian dessert translates to "pick me up".
    3rd post: What is tiramisu?

    ...and so on.

    Get it? Got it? Good!

    Continued from previous thread...

    What is quince?

    This food is available to us today thanks to a 17th century Indian priest who risked his life to smuggle some of its seeds to India to be cultivated there.

    OH! Yeah me!! icon_biggrin.gif

    Ok, this is a long description, bear with me.....

    Actually a vegetable, it's most often thought of as a fruit because of it's sweetness. It's related to the pumpkin, cucumber and squash. China is the world's largest producer of it. The first recorded harvest was in Egypt and it took place nearly 5000 years ago. This is depicted in Egyptian hieroglyphics that is found in ancient buildings. This vegetable was also placed in the tombs of kings to help them nourish in the afterlife.

    No question? I'll take a whack at it to keep this moving.

    Although this food is new to the North American market, it was a staple of the ancient Incas, who called it the mother grain. To this day it is an important food in the South American cuisine. It's considered a complete protein.

    What is quinoa?

    Assuming I'm correct (let me know if I'm not)...

    This Malaysian fruit can weigh up to 10 pounds. It has a brownish-green, semi-hard shell covered with thick spikes, and is slightly larger than a football. The fruit has an overpowering odor, similar to stinky feet....

    What is the Durian stinky fruit! Yuk.

    England is the home of this old-fashioned but delicious dessert made of cooked, pureed fruit that is strained, chilled and folded into whipped cream.

    What is chicken?

    Interesting article here on McD's and other fast food industries in India

    This spicy dish is a hotbed of contention for its devoted and very vocal followers. They run the gamut on what goes in the pot. Beans? No beans? Meat? Meatless? Take your stand and see how many people disagree on what goes in this popular dish.

    Actually it was mutton but I'm sure the meat is very diverse all over India...great guess!

    What is chili?

    It's a fruit, although many people believe that it's a vegetable. Originally, it was native to the western side of South America. However, it was first cultivated in Mexico, and it was through Colombus that seeds were first introduced to Europe. A great source of vitiman A and C, you can find them in red, orange, yellow, green and even purple.

    What is a tomato?

    It is difficult to trace the exact history of ************, but it was most likely domesticated somewhere in Europe before 1000 BC. By the Middle Ages it was a prominent part of European cuisine, although certain varieties were not developed until the 16th century. Heads are generally picked during the first year of the plants' life cycles, but those intended for seed are allowed to grow a second year, and must be kept separated from other cole crops to prevent cross pollination.It is prone to several nutrient deficiencies, as well as multiple pests, bacteria and fungal diseases.
