About This Quiz

Regional cuisine is part of the reason the restaurant industry is worth literally billions of dollars.  If we just had "food" out there, like those uninspired food cubes from the old Star Trek show, then eating would be boring.  We need Indian food and Mexican food and soul food and all the other varieties that make eating more than just a biological function, but an experience.  A pleasure! Food is life, and it should be a joy.  And it is!  But it's also a reflection of the people who make it.  The ingredients you have handy, the climate in which you live, the history of your people, all of these things have an effect on what you eat and what you like.  Is it a surprise then that we might be able to guess where you're from based on your tastes?

If food is regional, then so too are a lot of tastes.  And even if you like a wide variety of foods, we bet your tastes are still pretty much rooted in where you started off in life.  So tell us about your likes and dislikes, let us know what makes your mouth water and what makes you cringe away, and we'll tell you exactly where you come from.  Take the quiz and see!
