Shepherd's pie and cottage pie are not the same thing - one's made with lamb the other with beef.

The quiz doesn't indicate that they are the same thing, just as they are "also known as". While I agree that shepherd's pie should refer a pie made with lamb or mutton and cottage pie to one with beef, every other mediocre British style pub I go into serves a "shepherd's pie" made with ground beef. So, I see cottage pie called shepherd's pie all the time, and that is what many people know it as.

They are the same. Cottage Pie and Shepard's Pie are made with any kind of meat. What Shepherds don't eat beef. Malarky.

I agree with you Fruitloop. It's like saying a cappuccino is also known as a latte. They're both espresso-based drinks, but they're two different things and are not referred to interchangeably other than by people who don't quite know what they're talking about.

According to the Wikipedia article:

The term "shepherd's pie" did not appear until 1877, and since then it has been used synonymously with "cottage pie", regardless of whether the principal ingredient was beef or mutton.

The Wikipedia article also supports this claim with links to seven different sources. The quiz is correct.

Back in the sixties I grew up on Shepherd's Pie but back then we called it Chinese Pie. Of course that is no longer politically correct....

Looks like that Wikipedia article has been updated:

"The term shepherd's pie did not appear until 1854, and was initially used synonymously with cottage pie, regardless of whether the meat was beef or mutton. However, in the UK since the 20th century, the term shepherd's pie is used only when the meat is lamb."

Three links verifying the latter claim. I guess outside the UK it may still be synonymous.

I suggest accepting 'The Open' and 'Claret Jug' for The Open Championship clue. In my experience, it is widely known as simply THE Open... When that didn't work I thought I would try Claret Jug as it is referred to as that a lot. I appreciate that "The Open" is very similar to "The Open Championship", obviously.

I think I've seen this come up on another quiz as well, but 'unagi' doesn't mean freshwater eel - it just means eel. For example, take this passage from the Japanese Wikipedia article on moray eels: "他のウナギ目魚類同様に体は前後に細長い円筒形で、腹鰭が退化し、背鰭・尾鰭・臀鰭が一繋がりになっている" It clearly includes moray eels - a decidedly marine species - in the category of "unagi". For a simpler proof, just type 'unagi' into Google translate set to Japanese to English. It will translate it as just "eel". Same will apply if you use the Japanese characters for unagi: "ウナギ".
