The Tuesday Quiz

This week's quiz will test your knowledge. Let's see if you are up to the challenge this time.

1. What is the name of the fish that is closely related to the sea bream but less flavourful? It is caught in the Mediterranean and the Bay of Biscay.

2. Sablé is what? Is it sand in French , is it a pastry served often in France during the summer particularly in the northern region of that country , or is it a round crumbly biscuit often with a fluted edge?

3. The French verb écailler means to scale fish. What other french culinary term does it mean?

4. When growing grapes in a vineyard is it more advantageous for quality purposes to have grapes grow in areas where there is good drainage or poor drainage?

5. What wine has the Chardonnay grape? Is it Pouilly Fumé or Pouilly Fuissé?

Good luck to all and see you later with the answers.

In fact rather than post again I will submit the answers on this post in the comment section later on tonight when I get home from work. For some of you who I know will be asleep check back tomorrow morning.
