TODAY’S FOOD TRIVIA QUESTIONS

1) This food was created by Ruth Graves Wakefield in the 1930s, near Whitman, Massachusetts.  Ruth and her husband owned a small Inn and she came up with the recipe by accident when she had to substitute ingredients in a recipe.
Name this food.

2) This member of the buckwheat family has roots and leaves that contain poisonous substances, and only one part of the plant is edible.  It is native to the region around Turkey, and some species have been used medicinally in China and Tibet for at least 4000 years. It was not used in Western cooking until the 18th century. It is used in compotes, chutneys, jams, pies, and in an Italian aperitif.  In 1947 it was legally classified as a fruit in the U.S., even though botanically it is a vegetable.
Name this plant.
 

 



ANSWERS TO TODAY’S FOOD TRIVIA QUESTIONS:

1) The Toll House Cookie, otherwise known as the chocolate chip cookie. Ruth cooked for her guests, and one day had to substitute semi-sweet chocolate for baker's chocolate in a cookie recipe. She chopped the chocolate in bits, but when she took the cookies from the oven, the semi-sweet chocolate had not melted into the dough as the baker's chocolate had. These cookies with chocolate 'chips' became an immediate hit with her guests.

2) Rhubarb. The stalks are the only edible part, and the Italian aperitif is 'Rabarbaro.'
