What’s Your Foodie IQ?

My friends at Allrecipes.com have been working on some online food-related quizzes, and wanted me to check one out to see what I thought. I was hesitant at first, since I was obviously going to get all the questions right, and have to tell them their test was way too easy, thereby possibly hurting someone’s feelings.

However, much to my chagrin, I only scored a 15. Apparently, the quiz is not too easy. Do you think you could beat Chef John’s score? Find out here!

I also scored 15.

But, is knowing HOW many hotgogs (and buns) truly a marker of foodie street cred?

I learned the scientific/technical name for beluga caviar.

16! According to the test I am marginally more of a foodie than Chef John, although I seriously doubt the relevance of some of the questions.

Sigh I only got 10. I am not sure what question about a hot dog eating contest is doing in a foodie quiz.

19...Hello chef! As a true foodie, mangosteen and yuzu are mere child's play to you.

12! I was doing terribly at first. My working in a liquor store is the only reason I knew 11 and 16.
