[QUOTE=cape chef]Smarty pants, I give myself a higher score and I will tell you why, you tell me why I am wrong.
1) Glutenin and Gliaden are both proteins mixing them with liquid and working them creates another protein by the name of Gluten. so unless this is a trick question or you know something I don't I have to question you on this one.

5) I agree was possibly wrong as frankly I was making what I thought was an educated "guess".

10) I think I am 2/3 correct. Creme Renversee and Creme Brulee are both in fact "flans" by virtue of their consistency. Creme Anglaise with the addition of gelatin becomes Creme Anglaise Collee.

What say you?

I was kinda stumped by #10 to CH as I like you considered Creme Brulee and the other you mentioned as flans as well. I guess #10 could actually be all of the above. Either way CC you are the instructor so your explanation works for me.

Chrose, creme renversee, creme caramel and flan all refer to egg custards baked "over" a layer of caramelized sugar.

as to your "proper" challenge on ? 1, You are 100% correct, no trick question, just poor proof reading on my part.:crazy:

I thought I would add another easy French and historical question directly related to ChefTalk and it's pastry people.
1. Aside being quite the gathering point of some famous artist, what is Montparnasse known for as far as pastries go?
I'll throw in a new automobile for the winning answer.

In the morn(for baguette and crois) lunch for (baguette for big meal and nap). after school(baguette maybe something almond ,maybe a piece pf pithivier) dinner bag/batard and somethiong for dessert.

Shroom,
After services on Sunday we head 15 miles in the opposite direction of home to get some choco croiss. The owner will put a couple extra batons of chocolate for me. During the week my son will usually hit the door with a piece of toasted italian bread and nutella. We got some good news yesterday, my wifes uncle(architect) just purchased a chalet in the mountains for all to use. We will shut down to go if we have to. Wife wants my son to see his gr.grandma one more time. now 100 Her doctor comes by weekly to she hows she is doing. What is wrong with our system? 100 and still walks for the morning baguette.I don't know if this is a tradition but she is so excited that the baker doesn't charge anyone over a hundred. For the last 80 yrs or so she has had a baguette,some jambon, boiled egg and a couple of glasses of wine for lunch and of course a nice nap.
I don't want to paint to pretty a picture. In the appartments they own in Paris the have security roll down metal windows. Grandma left them open 1 day for 2 hours and the thieves got her good.
