Epicurean? Food enthusiast? Connoisseur of culinary skills? Then this quiz is perfect for you. You'll savor all the amazing techniques that make meals more flavorful and robust. It's fascinating how many variations in techniques there are in both dry and wet cooking.
In wet cooking methods, water, liquid or steam transfers heat to food. The maximum temperature of the cooking heat is water's boiling point or 100 C (212 F). With dry-heat cooking methods, the circulation of hot air or direct contact to fat transfers heat. Between the two larger categories, there are so many ways to impart flavor, modify texture and cook a meal to perfection.
You'll probably learn a few tasty tidbits along the way when taking this quiz, like how some cooking techniques evolved from environmental factors. For instance, in China when cooking fuel (as in wood) was scarce, stir fry was born. The technique of cutting meat and vegetables into small pieces so the food would cook faster and require less wood evolved out of necessity.
But the question remains, will you let the gastronomic genius in you shine through in this quiz? It all boils down to getting as many correct answers as you can. Go on, you have all the ingredients you need to ace this quiz.
