I have been posting old food quizzes here from my other blog, which I am going to close down eventually as it takes a lot of time maintaining two blogs. This Food Quiz Number 70 is the most recent one, set by my friend Pink. If you would like to give it a try, click here for the questions, and do the answers on your own blog, and let Pink know. If you are just interested in learning something, then carry on reading! These are my answers, and all of them are done without referring to external sources, including google. I will edit the post when Pink posts the answers so that you can go and see what they are.
