Thursday’s questions were:
1. Who said: The roots of education are bitter, but the fruit is sweet.?
2. What is an anthophila more commonly known as?
3. It’s miel in French, miele in Italian, miel in Spanish and too easy in Maori, what is it in English?
4. What is a nectavore?
5. Is your favourite toast-topping sweet or savoury?
Points for answers:
Andrei and David both win an electronic batch of ricebubble honey suckle square (recipe below answers) for a clean sweep.
J Bloggs gets three, a bonus for humour for # 4 and a nearly for # 2 – bees are flower-lovers but I think you were thinking of anthophilia with an i before the final a not anthophila.
Answers follow the break:
3. Honey (honi in Maori).
4. An animal which eats the sugar-rich nectar produced by flowering plants.
5. Vegemite, cottage cheese and tomato in summer, cottage cheese and kiwifruit without the vegemite in winter.
