Can you tell a kiwi from a durian? How about a T-bone from a Porterhouse steak?  The world of food is filled with bites great and small, tart and tangy, sweet and ridiculously, tongue-meltingly spicy.  How many of them can you identify?  This quiz will put your foodie brain to the test!

One place where knowing your foods is significant is in the produce department, especially if you're buying peppers to make a dish. Confusing a bell pepper with a poblano will get you a slightly spicier result than you'd planned, but it's nothing too horrible. However, confuse a cherry pepper with a Scotch bonnet, a jalapeno with a habanero, and you're really in for trouble! Your guests will be reminding themselves to never trust your cooking again while they're trying to eat or drink anything that will quench the fires in their throats.

You'll want to be on your toes when it comes to pasta, too. If you buy ziti when you need cavatelli, your dish won't come out the way you planned. Try to make macaroni and cheese with vermicelli, and you'll have a mess on your hands!

So grab a snack, pour your favorite beverage, and tune up your foodie brain for our delicious quiz!
