I had an interesting part #3 cooking for this quiz series (already had part #2 featured)... unfortunately never got around to finishing it and I think I lost the notes I had when I started making it... it was about foods with contested origins.

Scotland is a country. The quiz notes that these are not all sovereign nations. However, I do quibble with the fact that UK is accepted for England but not for Scotland. I'd prefer QM go one way or the other.

Scotland is not a country in the sense any of the others are. Otherwise, you should only accept Bavaria for Bratwurst, since that's where they are from, and the German "Land" translates to "country". Don't humour the Scots - if they want to be a country, they have a vote coming up, otherwise I suggest they just deal with being a province.

There needs to be consistency. "Country" indicates a sovereign nation to most. The UK contains Scotland and England, so if the UK is acceptable for one, it must be for the other, period.

But Scotland is its own country and the UK is made up of 4 countries. Accepting the UK for it would be like accepting "north america" for cuba, canada, jamaica, etc. etc.

No, it wouldn't. The UK isn't a continent. Besides, our problem is that 'UK' is accepted for England but not for Scotland.

But Haggis is very much a Scottish food - I'm English and have never eaten it. You can get it here, but UK shouldn't be accepted for it because Scotland is a different country and Haggis is the signature thing there but definitely not here. I thought most people knew that Scotland was a country, basic geography...

A recipe for haggis was published in a English book 200 years before there was any evidence of it being made in Scotland. It's origin in Scotland is doubtful. UK should still be accepted as a correct answer for this regardless of which part it is from.

Ok, back to the UK comment. Scotland, Wales, England, and Northern Island ARE different countries practically. A year they decided to come together to form the United Kingdom, hence the united part. That means Scotland is a good answer for Haggis.

So what? Every country of the world is made up of different parts. The Brits may call them "countries" but that doesn't mean they're the same as actual countries. France is made of 26 régions, Germany of 16 Länder, the US of 50 states... Should they all be their own country?

Yes, we Brits do call them different countries because they are. So tired of these ignorant comments about the U.K. Look at the long history, the different cultural ways, and then the way the English invaded and forced their language and culture and religion upon the people of the other countries within the U.K . That good old American you are smaller than us attitude. Give it a rest eh? These invasions were going on long before the white man stuck his fat nose in the land of Americas.

Actually skunkthepunk it was the Scots that invaded the north of Great Britain and pushed the Ancient Brits into the mountains or further south. They invaded from Ireland, bringing with them the Kilt, the Bagpipes etc. but not the tartan, that came much later and the designs for the kilts different clans were designed by an Englishman many years later.

Scotland is a seperate country, as is Wales, Ireland and England, we have different laws, and way of life, Haggis (whether or not it was created 200 years ago elsewhere) is Scottish, we have different national football teams , drinking laws and hours, rules, and laws, AND we ARE NOT A PROVINCE ! never have been and never will be !! Only people who dont know about Scotland would put down UK for haggis, totally wrong, AND the question master is always right !

do you have your own olympic team too? See I'm from Bavaria in Germany and we have in some parts own laws too, a different lifestyle and we have a "different language" :) (Germans will understand what I mean) BUT we are a part of Germany as every other Bundesland too. I know that Scotland always says we are a separate country like the irish part in Northern Ireland, but infact you are not. I'm sorry, but this is only in your wishes but in fact you are part of the UNITED Kingdom - which unites Northern Ireland, Wales, England and Scotland, like the UNITED States of America. I know that Haggis is from Scotland but tried UK first and wonder why this was not working. See when you play the quiz "countries of the world" there is only a UK and not Scotland, Wales and so on.

Since we're not talking about sovereign nations, the correct answer for the origin of poutine is Quebec, n'est pas??? Poutine is definitely NOT a Canadian invention. See: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Poutine - "The dish originated in rural Quebec, Canada, in the late 1950s." You probably should broaden your scope note to include countries, provinces, states, distinct regions and entities, etc.

Just like to add my voice tot he Scotland/England/UK debate. It must be consistent. Either accept UK for both or, preferably, for neither. Accepting UK for England but not Scotland just demonstrates the kind of ignorance which riles the Scots/Irish/Welsh so much. England/UK are NOT the same thing. So accept for both, or neither. Simple.
