Sarah Kuo 13 comments

Even the most full-fledged carnivore needs to take a break from meat sometimes. To fill the protein void, we turn to tofu, the coagulated soy milk block that often gets a bad rap. But if tofu could talk it would say, hey, I am tasty too! Try me with tomatoes and cilantro, or in the Sichuan dish mapo tofu. Let's hear it for that pale jiggly block. Take the tofu quiz » More

Sarah Kuo 6 comments

Pumpkins have always had a special place in my heart. Not only was it my nickname growing up—thanks to my round, gourd-like shape—but also because I just never get tired of them.

It's time to eat, breathe, and drink (in latte form?) the pumpkin! And see how much you really know about them. Take the quiz » More

Quiz: How Much Do You Know About Oysters?

Joan Fang 21 comments

Oysters are a briny, fresh taste of the sea. But they can take some getting used to. Just ask a child (and some adults for that matter) if they want to eat raw, salty, slightly slimy seafood—the answer will most probably be an emphatic no. But once you learn to love them, you probably can't get enough. It's easy enough to eat six oysters in one sitting, a dozen, or even two dozen if you're that obsessed. Plus, they're a pretty low-calorie food for what it's worth. So how much do you know about oysters? Take the quiz! » More

But how much do you really know about the bagel? Take the quiz! » More

Quiz: How Much Do You Know About Sushi?

Joan Fang 42 comments

Sushi perhaps provides the broadest palette for flavors. Simple sushi rice can be transformed into something greater than the sum of its parts with a slice of fresh fish, or an egg omelette, or even with wackier combinations of cream cheese and smoked salmon. Along with a drizzle of soy sauce, a dab of wasabi, and a few slices of pickled ginger. How much do you know about sushi? Take the quiz! » More

No matter which type you prefer, how much do you know about either type of ramen? Take the quiz! » More
