Thanks to all of you who entered the Slovenian Food Quiz. I imagine you have been losing sleep over whether or not you have won the grand prize! See the photos and correct answers matched below.
Number 1) John Dory fish
Number 2) Cheese strudel- Note the massive portion size hanging over the sides of the plate. The afternoon of cycling filled short steep climbs following induced much groaning and moaning from the Commonwealth group and a chorus of “Why did I eat so much?”
Number 3) Poached trout
Number 4) Beef ball That was tricky…the beef is under the cornflake like batter.
Number 5) Swordfish – Thought by some to have a strong resemblance to roast piglet.
Number 6) Chicken with pumpkin – The waiter called them ‘cigars’ – always an appealing description of a food item. Tasted far better than tobacco I will add.
Number 7) Grilled trout
Number 8) Roast piglet – This little piggy did indeed go to dinner
Number 9) Apple strudel
Number 10) Radish slaw – and deserving mention is the mushroom pate hiding beside it. Best thing I ate on the trip says the veggie lover
And the winner is ….after careful analysis of all entries….Janie with 8 out of 10 correct answers. Congrats! The grand prize of Slovenian chocolate is on it’s way to you. The fact that it has traveled in my backpack for the past two weeks with my well used cycling jersey and shorts should not deter you from the full enjoyment of such a sensational award.
