The difference between sugar snap peas and snow peas is pretty minimal... I would recommend accepting either one.

But sugar snaps (as they're called in the UK) still doesn't work! (no one calls them sugar snap peas)

Snow peas tend to be called "mangetout" in the UK (in Waitrose and Tesco, at any rate). What are called "sugar snap peas" are visibly thicker.

The sage photo you use doesn't seem very representative of the photos that show up when you do a Google image search for "sage". For one thing, most of the latter have leaves much more elongated than in the former. For a second thing, your photo obscures the coarse texture of sage leaves that is more visible in the Google photos.

It would be helpful to use an image of sesame seeds that included an indication of scale. I was trying to find a name for much larger seeds, for example, sunflower seeds! 😊

I just Googled pictures of schnitzel and it all looks like what's in this quiz, but pictures of scaloppini look different. Also, the schnitzel in this quiz looks like every schnitzel I've every had, including in Austria. What am I missing?

I had problems with a few ... sage doesn't usually look like that around here - more narrow and pointy and greyish. Soybeans are practically never used fresh (green)

The schnitzel looks just like one I would cook at home. And the sage plant looks like the one I have at home growing in my garden.

Surprised at how few knew soybeans. Maybe just comes with being a vegetarian.

I honestly thought the soybeans were sugar snap peas at first! But as an American, I typically would call that edamame. Once I realized that, I knew it was soybeans

yep, I agree CMC315, edamame are just immature soybeans blanched in salt water.

I have only heard of it one maybe two times. One was a travel gameshow. Where the challenge was they had to find a local to make it for them. So I remembered it, but never heard of it before. (And I vaguely remember once since, where more people did seem to know it and I was huh how do you all know this. But maybe I dreamt that..)

Veg samosa is a must have starter at any Indian restaurant, imo. So good!

Samosas are delicious Indian snacks. They are very well-known in the UK, probably because of our large Indian/Pakistani/Bangladeshi communities, and that they feature on almost all "Indian" menus and take-aways.

"Also known as Emmental" is misleading. Emmental is just one variety of several thousand different Swiss Cheeses. Would be better if it said "Emmental or Gruyere for example"
+1
Level 67
Jan 17, 2021
Agreed, it threw me for a second. Huh it has another name? Then I thought ah (example of) holey cheese.

edit I do not know though if gruyère is a Swiss cheese. Not questioning it, just do not have the knowledge (I know it is Swiss though).

I believe the Dutch Leerdammer and Maasdammer are both Swiss cheese for example

+2
Level 64

This clue was very misleading. Definitely needs to be reworded. To me, any cheese from Switzerland is Swiss cheese.

Got them all second time round. I did spend ages trying to think of the US name for watercress, then realised it isn't watercress...

BTW yes what's the deal with "Swiss Cheese"? Is that just what Emmental is called in the US then? Isn't e.g. Gruyere cheese also Swiss cheese?

Fun reading the comments to see how regional some of the terms for food are.

That being said, where I come from the only schnitzel we see is pork. Took me a while to get that one.

accept spaghetto singular? according to your interesting facts, that’s a valid term, and the picture does contain more than one spaghetto
