nicely done. maybe add "Balsamico" as answering option for "balsamic vinegar"?
Jan 12th, 2013 at 09:31 GMT
^thanks! 'Balsamico' added as an alternative.

I'm slightly surprised this quiz is being downvoted so much more than the French one was - please can people downvoting it leave feedback, so I know what to improve?

I really love it, five globes from me! I kicked myself over carbonara, tagliatelli and tortellini though, I knew that I did know them but couldn't for the life of me remember them in time.

Very good. I couldn't work out what you wanted for the spaghetti one, though, since all the other sauces and pasta types were accepted by themselves, eg tagliatelle.
Jan 12th, 2013 at 17:09 GMT
Thanks for the feedback Triffid. I really wanted to include carbonara, and the most famous and authentic way of serving it is with spaghetti, so I went with that. Maybe with the other pastas, I should do what I did with the tortellini and have them on their own in the pictures. What do you think?
Jan 12th, 2013 at 17:13 GMT
I was going to have spaghetti bolognese as well, but then discovered that the dish isn't actually authentic (ie. serving bolognese sauce with spaghetti isn't authentically Italian), so that's why I included ragu alla bolognese on its own.

I'm Italian and I can't succeed in having a full score on this quiz. Shame on me. In my opinion, the wrong one is pecorino, since in the picture you can see only a piece of cheese, and our most famous cheese is, I guess, Parmiggiano Reggiano, so I kept trying with that. Maybe it's just a problem of mine though. Well done. Five globes from me

^Thanks for the great feedback. I had it spelled 'Parmigiano', so maybe that's why it didn't accept it when you put it in. Which spelling is correct? On the internet it seems to be with one 'g'. Anyway, I've changed the answer so that Parmig(g)iano Reggiano is the main answer, with pecorino as an alternative. :)

Re the carbonara, I couldn't identify the sauce from the pic. It was the spaghetti that was prominent(as it should be), and tbh it could have been any one of various sauces. I got the ragu at once; as you say, "bolognese" sauce is not really authentic. Of course carbonara cannot be shown as a separate sauce in the same way, as it is formed around the hot pasta.
Jan 14th, 2013 at 06:24 GMT
I've made a typing mistake, correct spelling is parmigiano with only one G, but it didn't accept it when I tried. Now it works perfectly. Thanks :)
Jan 16th, 2013 at 08:57 GMT
tortelloni wasn't accepted, when it is essentially the same thing. I know this is just me but i've never called it with an i :(

In Italian is salamE, not salami ;-) !

Who doesn't recognize pizza? :D

Frustrated that I couldn't get tortellini, even though I used to eat it all the time, I just couldn't remember what it was called...
Mar 13th, 2013 at 03:23 GMT
Although it did look like balsamic vinegar, I was confused by the glass full of it. I guessed chianti.
