I have been studying food science for all 87 years I've been alive. Never have I ever taken a food science quiz more challenging. Your knowledge of food science is astounding! I never thought I would meet someone who knew more about food science than I, but it would appear I've met my match. I will be assigning this quiz to all of my students at the Culinary Institute of Cooking for their final exam. Cheers to you, Duke of Glert!

This quiz saved my marriage.

2 years ago me and my wife were going through the worst of times. I couldn't spend 5 minutes without starting an argument with her. At the same time, I got fired from work and was starting to run low on money. This truly was my darkest hour. But then I saw this quiz. Like an angel of heaven, this quiz came down to the lowest of the lowest pits and dragged me to heaven itself. There I was enlightened and reached Nirvana.I left my wife happily knowing that this cycle of reincarnation will end in this life and I will be finally at peace.Thank you duke of glert may the buddha shine your path and your next lives be as helpful and great as this one is turning out to be.

I blame you dukeofglert.

I am a student at the Stanford Culinary Institute and used this quiz to study for my final. I got my grade back and got a 2% on it. My dream to be a chef at a 5-star restaurant is ruined. This is your fault dukeofglert. I pray Allah strikes you down with his infinite wisdom and power from whatever hovel you live in you sick, sick man.
