How well did you do?

10 out of 15. Although I lived in the SF bay area for 14 years, I never knew that chowder was/is popular there.

15 for me. Iza, you're absolutely correct. Is there a more eclectic test that doesn't slant exclusively to European/French food? Bring it on!

I only missed two and I don't even speak French. That is quite good, I think.

Well done Britcook! That Jamie Oliver fellow is kinda cute except for that funny lisp, so being naked won't be so bad ;)

I missed one, but I probably would have missed more if not for the chowder hint in this post and if I hadn't learned about rennet in another post somewhere in ChefTalk.

two wrong and one lucky guess. I didn't know chowder is popular in San Francisco either and I'm currently living in the area. Perhaps they meant cioppino, which is a San Francisco treat.

15, but had to take a guess on the chowder question. Been in San Francisco plenty of times and don't remember ever seeing chowder on a menu. I think they fudged that one.
Also, I think for "praline" both answers would be correct. While in the US, praline refers to a sugary nutty confection popular in the south, "praline" (pronounced
PRAH leen ay) in french, italian and swiss pastry circles refers to any "one bite"-sized pastry. So a chocolate truffle would fit into that category.

While chowder may be available in San Francisco--at the Swan Oyster Bar for instance--it is much more popular elsewhere, indigenous to New England and decidedly NOT a broth. There is only ONE chowder (forget about Manhattan--that's soup)and that's CLAM chowder, and must contain--by definition: clams, clam juice or fish stock, potatoes, onions, and very important: pork product as in salt pork or less authentically--bacon-- and cream. Making it a cream soup. I'm usually not a nitpicker, but my old Cape Cod cooking roots compelled me to rant. ANTHONY BOURDAIN :mad:

hehe, no answer but the obvious.

Praline - yes a type of toffee/caramel, but also a type of chocolate - referring to a mixture of nuts and chocolate (maybe even some fondant).

Gotta be careful as to which segment of cooking one applies one knowledge to, after all, petit fours and what nots apply to pastry cooking, but it is still cooking after all (just specialised).

Hi,

Put me right. I thought kedgeree was mostly rice and fish. We used sieved/chopped egg to decorate.

Thanks.

12 out of 15

ok, I found this real late compared to everyone else, heh. I did pretty well, though!

Chowder is popular in SF, yes, but mostly down on Pier 39 with the tourists. The whole "chowder in a bowl" thing. They serve it New England style nearly all the time.

Yay!! I got 13 right!
I've learned some stuff in the past year!
And NO I don't know my wines at all. Ask me about my whiskey and scotch . . .:D
