About This Quiz

Whether it is the holiday season, a special occasion or just a regular day, everyone from world-renowned pastry chefs to amateur bakers make some of these popular baked goods every single day. From the French Creme Brulee, to the Spanish empanada to the British mince pie to the Danish risalamande, these widely known and widely enjoyed treats have been baked for centuries and have been passed down from generation to generation.

While many of us find our recipes online, some of us choose to stick to traditional or family recipes, while others tend to put a new spin on old recipes, bringing classic culinary creations to a new audience, and there are others who just prefer to eat them. Do we know where some of our favorite baked goods come from, and the recipes or ingredients used to make them?  There's only one way to find out.

How many of these worldly treats can you identify from just a picture and how well can you match them to the country in which they were made popular? Take this quiz to test your knowledge on these baked treats and place a bet with a friend to see which one of you is more well versed in the subject of food geography.  Of course, the payoff will be delicious!
