I think I may know a couple, and I’ll wing the rest, even though I suspect Pink Polka Dot is swearing at us a lot …


1        What type of meat is traditionally used in a Cacciatore stew?

I know that means ‘Hunter’ but one could hunt almost anything that’s catchy.


2  What is a Muffaletta?

You write to someone, and get the wording all wrong?


 3        What are Scotch eggs?

They havenae go’ a sense o’ humour, och aye, for one canna see the yolk. It has been taken out of the hardboiled egg and stuffed with a mix of sausage and stuff. One needs to eggsperiment on such stuff.


4. Sweet peppers don’t produce the chemical responsible for the hot chilli burn. What is this chemical?

Nasty burny stuff.


5. What is japonais?

Japanese in a French accent.


6. What is the name of the traditional Greek anise-flavored aperitif?

That is ouzo, which is a relative of a zo-zo which is an onion if you turn it up on end anticlockwise and look at it from the top down. Of course, it is a no-no the other way round.


7. What is Schiacciata?

Bless you.


8. Are Brinjals fruit or vegetables?

Neither – they are an animal product. From planting an egg. (Fruit, I’d guess.)


9. Which natural edible product can never spoil?

Sweet of you to ask that, Honey!


10. Approximately how many liters of milk are required to make 500g butter?

That entirely depends how many times it gets me beat and I produce either cream or a white puddle on the floor.
