Nice job getting identifiable photos! Should accept 'omelet' without the 'te' and 'crepes' without the circumflex.
Jan 4th, 2013 at 05:43 GMT
Fantastic! I'd love to see a similar quiz based on another cuisine, e.g. Italian or Japanese.
Jan 4th, 2013 at 08:10 GMT
^Thanks!@thedpr: added. @Aaron_Kashtan: you'll be glad to hear I'm planning to do a whole series of these, so yes, there will be quizzes for other countries' cuisines.
Jan 4th, 2013 at 12:06 GMT
Excellent quiz and I can't wait to play the whole series! You have some great pictures for each clue. That being said, the first picture in the first rwo looks distinctly cheesy to me. I was certain it was potatoes au gratin, which is a French dish. Also, the fourth picture in the first row is also known as a Napoleon, so please accept that as well.
Jan 4th, 2013 at 21:06 GMT
Nice quiz! Maybe accept entrecote for the steak frites?
Jan 5th, 2013 at 06:03 GMT
Great quiz. As some of the answers accepted English versions, I think it might be good to also allow "beef burgundy" for "boeuf bourguignon."
Jan 6th, 2013 at 04:30 GMT
Good stuff. How about "chocolatine" for the pain au chocolat? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chocolatine
Jan 6th, 2013 at 15:22 GMT
I thought the mousse was a souffle. Oh well. They're both amazingly delicious and fattening. It's so much fun to make that design on the Napoleon with a toothpick.
Jan 6th, 2013 at 17:34 GMT
Love it; would have loved to have seen tartiflette...my favourite French dish :)
Jan 7th, 2013 at 01:56 GMT
croquembouche can also be "croque-en-bouche". Please accept that.
Jan 7th, 2013 at 15:58 GMT
Thanks for the feedback everyone, I've added in the alternatives.
Jan 7th, 2013 at 18:32 GMT
this was really good and challenging - the only picture I really couldn't work out was the chocolate mousse, to me it looks like some sort of bun.... Looking forward to hte other versions :-)
Jan 9th, 2013 at 12:04 GMT
I was convinced that the first one in column 5 was Forrero Rocher, I was desperately trying every spelling I could think of!
Jan 10th, 2013 at 09:32 GMT
I couldnt spell beouf beourgignon (still cant) and i just put tartin thats a shame either way great quiz made me so hungry i love french food
Jan 12th, 2013 at 14:21 GMT
lol i couldn't spell bouef bourguignon either so I finally gave up and entered beef stew...... and it worked! Hooray for alternate answers!
Jan 15th, 2013 at 18:43 GMT
I spent a minute thinking what sponge cake with chocolate cream is called in French, then gave up and realized it was pâté all along. I'm so stupid. :D
Jan 21st, 2013 at 01:45 GMT
I had a hard time with Ratatouille and croque monsieur, and also resorted to beef stew. I never could spell french words.
Feb 3rd, 2013 at 14:19 GMT
Bouillabaisse was the one I couldn't spell. Also tried many variations of duck à l'orange for what turned out to be coq au vin. And I couldn't get over the fact that the pain au chocolat looks like it is extruding a small poo.

Great quiz! Hopefully all those Pixar film quizzes paid off on remembering how to spell it!
Feb 20th, 2013 at 04:19 GMT
Yeah, great quiz. Of course now I'm hungry. There's an egg dish that looked like pasta to me for some reason... couldn't figure out what on earth it was. d'oh!
Feb 20th, 2013 at 04:31 GMT
Couldn't help singing "Foux Da Fa Fa" by Flight of the Conchords in my head while doing this quiz.
Feb 20th, 2013 at 04:37 GMT
Nice work on this one! I may not be a cheese expert, but I do eat a lot of camembert, which looks an awful lot like brie. Could it be an accepted answer as well?
Feb 20th, 2013 at 04:37 GMT
I confess - I tried "French Fries"
Feb 20th, 2013 at 04:46 GMT
Did anyone else get croquembouche because they watched "The Weekenders" as a kid? I was also impressed that I got roquefort and ratatouille from two different rodents made by Disney/Pixar.
Feb 20th, 2013 at 05:03 GMT
@secretgaijin "you could of said something nice about my profitiroles."
Feb 20th, 2013 at 05:08 GMT
Would've done better if I could spell the damn words! I'm such an American.

"Stupid French, smoke cigarettes, eat fat cheese. It doesn't hurt them. NOTHING HURTS THEM!"
Feb 20th, 2013 at 05:29 GMT
loved that you included cassoulet, one of the many culinary delights of the Midi. Yummy photos!

@juviejay They also smoke cheese and eat fat cigarettes...

This quiz has reminded me of how much I hate French food.
Feb 20th, 2013 at 06:48 GMT
I didn't recognize that photo as pate. I thought it was some kind of dessert.
Feb 20th, 2013 at 07:21 GMT
Found this a bit confusing in that some french forms of the dishes were't accepted e.g. Pot au feu as the beef stew when Cassoulet was accepted. Great quiz though :)
Feb 20th, 2013 at 08:28 GMT
Thanks for the publication, Sporcle!
Feb 20th, 2013 at 08:28 GMT
I thought Tarte Flambée here, which is an Alsatian thin bread pizza where cream cheese is basically substituted (and accompanied by onions) for cheese. It was disgusting, and I was hoping that that terrible experience would at least pay off on Sporcle.
Feb 20th, 2013 at 08:30 GMT
@irishailish: cassoulet is the duck, sausage and bean dish, not the beef stew (which is bouef bourguignon). As pot au feu is a type of beef stew I would add it in as an alternative to the bourguignon, but now the quiz has been published I can't edit it.
Feb 20th, 2013 at 08:31 GMT
Thank you for accepting my terrible English interpretations of French names! This became a game less of trying to guess the correct name and more one of finding out what its actual name is after typing Steak and Chips, French Bread and Custard Slice (which I knew was wrong since the French don't have custard, only creme anglaise, which is not quite the same thing). Fun quiz!
Feb 20th, 2013 at 11:13 GMT
Tried steak tartare, pommes frites, chateaubriand, tournedos... And this for a vegetarian ;) Over here we call mille-feuille tompouce, and I thought the croquembouche to be a Saint Honore cake, or, indeed, profiteroles.
Feb 20th, 2013 at 11:56 GMT
Very tasty, I'm hungry now. I also tried tompouce for the mille-feuille, but apparently that's a term only used in Belgium and the Netherlands.
Feb 20th, 2013 at 11:57 GMT
down on Steak frites...I did try "french fries", then pommes frites (which after seeing the answer should have worked), then I assumed it was something else so I tried au jus (which is shown) then reached for filet mignon..... when nothing worked, I quit -- then see "STEAK" boooo... OK -- it was still fun
