Foodie Fight! Something to get your mitts on
There are a bunch of endorsements from food celebs on the box – Mario Batali, Lidia Bastianich and Chuck Williams weigh in – but my favorite comes from Jacques Pepin, who says:
“Finally, a trivia game that I am interested in and knowledeable enough to play!”
My sentiments precisely.
Here are a few questions I picked at random:
- Which fish has the highest fat content – Chilean sea bass, halibut or catfish?
- True or False: A rich chocolate dessert should be paired with a wine of greater sweetness, such as a French Sauternes, or the wine may taste thin and bitter?
- What American artist is known for his paintings of cakes and pies?
- When do you not raise your glass during a toast?
- What chef’s trick will hold a cutting board steady, or keep a mixing bowl from traveling, when both hands are busy pouring and stirring?
- Which cut of food is smaller – minced or chopped?
- How many minutes past the slated time will a restaurant reservation be honored – about 10 to 15 minutes, 20 to 25 minutes, or 30 to 35 minutes.
There are 1,000 questions, six playing boards and hours of fun in store, and I think FOODIE FIGHT would make a great gift when you’re heading to someone’s house for dinner. Come Christmas, it could be a super stocking stuffer. But be warned: You can only stuff a sturdy stocking: the box, with its neat magnetic close, packs as much heft as a porterhouse steak!
