Recently, Andrew at “Very Good Taste” challenged the foodie blog world with a list of 101 things no true foodie couldn’t NOT eat.
So how about a new list? This time what counts is this:  How many do you know? Never mind if you ate them, that’s not the point. What do you REALLY know about food? Tell us what the foods are in this list. What do these food words signify, mean, denote?
Send your results to “Gherkins & Tomatoes” by October 15. The first person to get all the answers right wins a special mention in a “Gherkins & Tomatoes” post.  Answers will be posted after October 21. Hint: All these foods appear in various food-related encyclopedias and dictionaries.
