I am so very excited that Trivia Mafia, one of the best bar trivia groups in town, has decided to challenge the foodists to a mental show down. In conjunction with area co-ops, in celebration of 2012 as The Year of the Co-op, Trivia Mafia will be setting up in local bars all month with a veritable reusable bag full of food/co-op questions. It may go something like this:
Immigrants from what Scandinavian country brought the co-op movement to Minnesota? *
Products labeled 100% organic are allowed to contain two ingredients that may not be organic. Name them. **
Lordy knows that we have a few high-and-mighty amongst us who think they know everything there is to know about everything you might chew. Present company excluded, natch. But you know that guy, the one who SWEARS up and down that searing meat will seal in the juices while saying chi-pohl-tay? He’s the one I want to sit by.
* Nope, Finland.
** Water, salt.
