A master chef

If you have answered correctly 6-9 questions, you are a master chef. You know what you eat, and you don’t need a recipe to know what to do with a tomato, eggplant and courgette. Baking is also not a problem for you, and you know for sure that your cooking skills are impressive when you collect empty plates after the dinner.

All hail to the gastronomic master

If you scored 10 in this food quiz, meaning that you answered all the questions correctly, then you are a gastronomic master. You know your food from A to Z and can even create your own recipes. There is not much to say, you are basically a food guru.


It is not a secret, that food plays a huge role in human life. And although, some people may seem indifferent about it and eat whatever’s at hand, all people have their specific preferences. You may like certain dishes, and dislike others, and that is ok. Being a food lover is very popular nowadays, knowing which food goes better in which combinations and spending time to enjoy certain dishes can even be considered a hobby. But not all foodies really know what they eat, what nutritional value some foods have, and sometimes even what they are made of. This food quiz will determine who is a gastronomic master, a master chef, food amateur, or a newbie.

Food is not all you need! Supplement your diet with some exercise to double your results.
