Many thanks to all who bought this quiz and even more thanks to those who sent in their answers.
When I compiled this quiz I thought it would be an easy topic, but, sorry, I was proved wrong. I have allowed a few alternative answers, and have not taken plurals into consideration, plus some answers can be written in a different order.
The book I used was the
GOOD HOUSEKEEPING COOKERY ENCYLOPAEDIA, which was first published in 1951, my copy says ‘This separate and Revised Edition 1964). I have had it since I was at school and found it extremely useful over the years.
The answer sheets have now been sent out, including the new quiz mentioned above.

My latest cryptic fundraiser for Macmillan Cancer Support is now available for pre-order at - copies will be sent out from Sunday 25th August onwards.
This time there are lots of food-related prizes - details on my blog at
This quiz consists of 100 foods defined by cryptic clues.
Thank you in anticipation for your support.
Please can someone give me the address for The RSBP quiz Lets go wild. Many thanks.
