I was in Kohler Wisconsin at the American Club in July and was reading one of the food magazines (I think it was Gourmet but, it could easily have been Bon Appetite, Food and Wine... etc.). One of the pages mentioned a fun deck of cards that included fun questions to ask your dinner guests. One of the examples was something like, "What food are you embarrassed to like?" On the same page, it mentioned an ice cream maker based in Los Angeles (where I live).
I meant to write these two down but, completely forgot... doh!
Please help me find this deck of cards!!! Please! (Oh and, if you have the ice cream maker's name from L.A. too, that'd be a bonus :-D)

    The web site http://www.booksforfoodies.com has a "games for foodies" section. Maybe you'll find it in there.? I've never played that card game, but it sounds like something I'd like!

      It could be Foodie Fight, I think created by a woman in DesMoines, IA.
      It's a trivia game with board and cards so I'm not sure it's what you're thinking of, though you could certainly just read the cards. That's how we used to play Trivial Pursuit at our house, skipping the board part all together.

        I purchased Foodie Fight with such great anticipation - yay a food game that I can learn from! However if you are even remotely interested in food, i.e. read the Wednesday NYT or these boards etc., you'll find the questions too easy. Also we went through about 4-6 games and pretty much tapped out the deck.

          this game i'm looking for is not a trivia game and, it had no board attached... just a very large stack of cards with questions for the guests. you pass around the question like you do with a great plate of cheese.
          thanks for trying though :)

                Sorry, I can't give any details at all about "Eat My Trivia." I simply came across it online while searching.
