Here we go with the Tuesday quiz. Good luck!

1. Crema de Lima from Spain is what flavoured liqueur?

2. Creme Yvette is made from the petals of violet parma , is highly scented , and named after the French actress Yvette Guilbert. Where is it made?

3. This liqueur comes from the Basque region in the southwest of France and is flavoured with Armagnac , with fruits , honey , and flowers from the Pyrenees that are close by. First introduced in 1835 it comes in both yellow and green with the former at 43% and the more intensely flavoured green coming in at 55%. What is the name of this liqueur?

4. In French cuisine a chasseur sauce is made from mushrooms , shallots , tomatoes , and white wine added to a sauteed dish such as chicken for example. What does the word chasseur translated into English mean?
