It’s almost time for the next instalment of the Bristol Bites Food Quiz at The Star & Dove, starting at 8pm on Monday, November 5th.
Entry to the quiz at the popular Totterdown venue is £1.50 per person, with teams of up to four people allowed. The top three teams will be awarded vouchers to spend on food at The Star & Dove: £20 for the winning team, £10 for second place and £5 for the third placed team.
Pit your wits against other teams of food lovers with five rounds to test your food and drink knowledge. I’m busy working on questions for three of the rounds – general knowledge, a picture round and a specialist round (which changes every month) – while the final two rounds are compiled by the boys at The Star & Dove.
One of these rounds sees the team putting together an appetiser for every person taking part, with the aim of identifying all of the ingredients. They’ll also be putting together a “name the ingredients” round (see photo), whereby every team will smell, taste and touch their way through ten foodstuffs to try and name the lot.
As November 5th is Bonfire Night, head over early and take advantage of the fact that the team will be serving food from their fire pit rather than the standard tavern menu. Expect the likes of soups, stews, and a selection of meats and fish.
After the quiz (it should finish around 10pm…), guests will be invited to head outside where they can watch a fireworks display that the boys are hosting from the pub’s roof terrace – I can’t wait!
Looking forward to hopefully seeing some of you there…it’s worth booking a table if you’re keen, as we had a full house last time! 🙂
