Regular followers will know I always have a bit of crazy fun-with-food on New Years Eve, in the form of a buffet table which forms the first round of a quiz.
This year our theme was Europe, and everyone came dressed on theme. We had everything from a slice of pizza to Conchita Wurst, with lederhosen and gillet jaunes in between!
So here’s the first round of the quiz. Which European places are represented by these food items?!
The average score for our (admittedly slightly tipsy) teams was 26.75 out of 29 with one team scoring an impressive 28.5! Can you beat them?
8. TV with moving (sort of) images of the original Red Wedding…but what is the name of the fictional country?
So, that’s it: 29 European locations in buffet table form!! How many can you get? Clue: NONE are in the UK, Europe is defined geographically rather than politically, and one place is represented twice.
While you are thinking he’s some extra Europe based fun that we had to play with…
And here’s the before and after shots.
