TODAY’S FOOD TRIVIA QUESTIONS

1) What is the difference between 'Cajun' and 'Creole'?

2) This Italian skim milk cheese dates back to at least the 13th century and may date even to the 11th century. It is made only from April 1 through November 11 each year with milk from cows that have been feeding on fresh pasture. Most of the cream is skimmed from the milk which is then cooked in copper containers, pressed in cheesecloth lined molds, salted in brine and then allowed to mature.
Name this cheese.
 

 


ANSWERS TO TODAY’S FOOD TRIVIA QUESTIONS:

1) 'Creole' refers to the descendants of the original aristocratic French and Spanish (also German & Italian) settlers who came directly from Europe under Spanish sponsorship and rule to establish New Orleans in the 1690s.  The cooking also has Native American, West Indian and African influences.

'Cajun' referred to descendants of the former French colony in East Canada, called Acadia (Nova Scotia).  They had arrived in Acadia beginning in 1620. They were exiled in 1755 by the English, many eventually making their way to Louisiana, living in the swamps and bayous. Cajun cooking has very little influence of the classical cuisine of Europe - it is truly an American cuisine.

2) Parmigiano-Reggiano from Italy’s Parma region, the highest quality and original Parmesan Cheese.
