The Great Foodrock Trivia Quiz: Part One

Last week, Edible Manhattan hosted the third of their trivia nights at Brooklyn Brewery in Williamsburg, offering prizes as diverse as pounds of coffee, boxes of chocolates, locavoric wines, and, not surprisingly, bottles of Brooklyn beer.

The subject was rock music related to food. Edible Manhattan and Edible Brooklyn blogger and editor Rachel Wharton was the emcee, and I wrote the questions, which came in three sections. Beginning today, and for the next two Saturdays, Fork in the Road presents those questions for your stumpification -- the answers to today's quiz will be posted next Saturday, along with the next installment. Of course, you always have the option of Googling up the answers if you can't wait. So, put a CD on the CD player and put on your thinking caps.
