We had a fantastic turn out for our Gourmet Burger Night last Friday. Not only did everyone enjoy the burgers that were lovingly home-made by our team of skilled butchers, but we also said “Cheers!” to International Beer Day by sampling some locally brewed ales.
The answers to our burger-themed quiz are as follows:
- Why is a hamburger so-called when it is made of beef?
The term ‘hamburger’ originally derives from Hamburg in Germany where a minced-beef style dish was created.
- What is the “Big Mac Index”?
The Big Mac index was invented by The Economist in 1986 as a light-hearted guide to whether currencies are at their “correct” level.
- What links Rodin and Edward III to tonight?
Les Bourgeois de Calais (The Burghers of Calais) is a sculpture by Rodin that commemorates an event during the Hundred Years’ War, when Calais, a French port on the English Channel, was under siege by the English for about eleven months.
- How many burgers does McDonald’s sell?
75 per second
A huge congratulations to the winner of the quiz, Lisa Ratcliffe, who wins a table for two at our next evening event.
Make sure you keep an eye out for our upcoming events, such as our Harvest Supper on Friday 6th September. As ever, prior booking is essential and bookings can be made by calling us on 01902 735 724.
