Couldn't spell 'andouille' for the life of me so figured I was wrong. Nope, just can't spell.

There's actually a difference - it depends on where it's manufactured, much like whiskey vs whisky. Sans 'e' usually means central/eastern Europe, Bohemian style. With 'e' usually means western Europe/elsewhere (typically France). If it isn't already, the answer should be accepted without the 'e' (I can't recall if it did).

Aubergine and Andouille were the easiest for me as a French speaker :)... Also I always say "Aspargus"... just learnt it's "AspaRAgus"... my English is getting better! :)

I always thought that tequila was made from the leaves, but I found out that all the leaves are chopped off and the bulbous base of the agave holds a soccer-ball size of white pulp.

As fas as I remember: the leaves can be used to create clothes and paper. Also, during the Prehispanic Era, the leaves were turned into thatch for the humble houses.

I never knew there was another name for arugula. Good thing this wasn't a letter R quiz. I never would have gotten rocket.

In New Zealand I have never seen acorn squash (and never heard of it). We have something that looks very similar called buttercup.

I've seen buttercup squash but never grown it. I grew acorn squash once but they were too hard to cut open and I found them stringy and less flavorful than butternut. Someone suggested poking holes in them and baking them whole in the oven, but I even had trouble gouging a few holes in them. Maybe I should trying growing buttercup - do you recommend them? If I'm lucky I might get a couple before the squash bugs and squash vine borers decimate them.

The andouille is misleading for a European, because a French andouille is a large andouillette and it doesn't resemble the Louisiana style andouille sausage at all. Still, it's all about the learning, and I have done that. I had never heard of or seen an acorn squash either. Thanks to Lenny and George for knowledge of alfalfa.
