About This Quiz

The culinary world is full of delicious desserts, seasonings and dishes that are popular for their flavors and textures. Some of these flavors are bolder and more pronounced, while others are more subtle and hidden. And if you've worked in a kitchen before, then you probably know what kinds of dishes we're talking about!

Thai cuisine is a great example of this. Popular choices like spicy green papaya salad, pad thai and chicken in coconut soup are made with many different types of ingredients. Some of these include fish sauce, lime juice, tamarind, dried chiles and coconut milk. While it can be difficult to detect each one of these ingredients, they all work together to create harmonious flavors. But some dishes don't need a lot of elements to be flavorful. Take the classic pizza, for example. Some pizza dough, tomato sauce and cheese is all you need for a hearty meal to share. You can even mix and match various vegetables, proteins, herbs and fruits together for even more flavor. So in this yummy food quiz, we're going to learn more about the types of foods you love and hate to find out what your kitchen role once was!
