It's midday, and this morning I have spent far too long chatting with my friend Kate over cups of tea and discussing the aspects of a perfect cinema (freshly baked cookies and blankets in case you are wondering). I do apologise because I know that you all have been waiting with bated breath to find out the answers of the Christmas Quiz - Food and Drink round as promised. The fact that I have inadvertently lost the piece of paper with the answers on shall not stop us, for it is in my brain - somewhere.
So here we go folks,
1. What was number 1 in the Amazon cook-book bestseller list for 2011?
River Cottage Veg Every Day
2. Which way do you stir the Christmas pudding mixture for good luck?
3. Translate these common food phrases into English...
a) Antipasto - Before the meal
b) A la carte - From the menu
c) Amuse Bouche - Mouth amuser or palate pleaser
4. How many bottles of champagne are there in a Jeroboam?
5. Apple or Tomato?
a. Honeycrisp - Apple
b. Mr Stripy - Tomato
c. Hank - Tomato
d. Rusty Coat - Apple
Mystery Rudolph Round 'Guess Who' - John Torode. Jokes, it was of course the spoon gobbler himself - Mr Gregg Wallace.
So - did you get 10/10? I'd be disappointed if you didn't.
I am controversially going to announce Kavey as the overall winner. Controversially because she failed to answer any question and instead got everything mixed up. It all ended with her explaining that it's not that odd that a tomato is called Hank because she has a friend, who had a friend, who kept a tomato as a pet. In a jar of water. For years. You literally couldn't make that stuff up.
So for sheer amusement, I salute you Queen Kavey of Quiz Land. Here is your imaginary crown.
