Test your French food knowledge

herbes de provence

Are you a Francophile? Do you love French food? Think you know a lot about French cuisine? If the answer to any of these questions is ‘yes’, you might want to take the Epicurious quiz designed to test your knowledge of French food.

The quiz contains several multiple choice questions that range from information that anyone with a passing knowledge of French food would know (which of the following is not one of the mother sauces – a) Velouté, b) Espagnole, c) Mayonnaise, or d) Tomate) to ones that may be a bit more challenging (According to Larousse Gastronomique, this military and commercial crossroads of western Europe has a surprisingly unexceptional history of cuisine – a) Champagne, b) Bordeaux, c) Normandy, or d) Burgundy).

If you are a true Francophile, or have been at the cooking game for some time, you’ll likely do fairly well on the quiz. If not, you might learn a thing or two about French foods or regional specialties. I discovered an interesting tidbit about herbes de Provence (I won’t spoil the surprise by telling you before you take the quiz).
