About This Quiz

Europe contains a mishmash of cultures, with histories dating back thousands of years. Some cultures are all about working hard, playing hard, and conquering the pinnacle of your profession. Others are more about the Epicurean life and enjoying those finer things, slowing down for a siesta or contemplating philosophy. 

European climates also run the gamut, from the temperate, pleasant climes of France to the warm, perfect-for-farming-year-round Italian sunshine, to the short growing season and spectacular winters of the frozen north.

That means European cuisine covers a vast range of options. There are healthy Mediterranean diets based on peppers, zucchini, pasta, and fluffy bread, grilled to perfection and drizzled with olive oil then sprinkled with just the right dose of goat's cheese. There's indulgent French dining where fatty soft cheese and butter are considered staples and no meal is complete without a bottle of wine.

Then there's everything north of the Channel, where salad is still breaking into the lexicon, haggis is still considered to be a legitimate dining option, and the beer is so full of live yeast that it's a wonder it doesn't just get up and walk away.
