About This Quiz

Are you destined for "Top Chef" or more suited for "Worst Cooks in America?"

Some people eat to live, while others live to eat. If you fall into the latter category, it's likely that you view cooking as an art, not as a chore. Perhaps you're a cooking novice, but have binged every episode of "Iron Chef." Or maybe, you're pulling a "Julie & Julia" and are in the midst of cooking every recipe in "Mastering the Art of French Cooking." It's possible that you fall somewhere in between interest and obsession, and are simply interested in making a perfect filet mignon.

If you want to know how far along you are in the world of cooking techniques and lingo, take this quiz to find out!

Do you know the subtle difference between baking and roasting? What about the different ways to cure meat? Do you know what a honing steel is and how you use it? 

If you're sure you know the ingredients of a mirepoix (as opposed to a sofrito), and can list the steps needed to properly bread a chicken cutlet, you'll pass this quiz with the ease of a Granton blade cutting through a raw potato. On your mark, get set, bake!
