[UPDATE] Are you Philly's Foodiest Foodie? Test Your Knowledge at Food Quizzo on Feb. 27 @ The Wishing Well

It's time to put your money where your mouth is, Philly foodies. On Wed., Feb. 27, at 7 p.m. at The Wishing Well (767 S. Ninth St.), round up a team of your best gourmands and test your knowledge of all things comestible and potable at the South Philly Food Co-op's Food Quizzo.

The event is FREE to attend. Questions will be "sourced" from some of the finest culinary minds in the Philly dining and food-blogging scene, and will be grouped in three categories:

  1. Philly Focused

  2. At Home Cooking

  3. Nutrition and History

Question contributors thusfar  include:


  • Barry's Homebrew

  • Daniel Berlin, Owner and Pickle Packer at the Bongo Zeptobrewery

  • Garces Trading Company

  • Beth Kaufman, Healthy Fare

  • Fair Food

  • The Avenue Delicatessen from co-op members Laura Frangiosa and Josh Skaroff

  • Jill Weber, Jet Wine Bar and Rex 1516

  • Passyunk Post

  • Trey Popp, Philadelphia Magazine

And we continue to add  tongue-teasers from food industry folks every day.

(Want to submit your own questions? Email questions about food — any question — along with the answer, to Leigh Goldenberg, Chair, Programs and Events Committee, South Philly Food Co-op. Ideally, your question will fit into one of three categories: Philly Focused, At Home Cooking, or Nutrition and History. If you are so inclined, provide 2-3 alternative (but incorrect) answers, that would help our quiz master. We'll read your name and affiliation along with the question at Quizzo.)

There will, of course, be prizes for the winning teams. But as if that's not exciting enough, all Co-op members will get their 15% Shop South Philly discount on food and drinks purchased at the Wishing Well that night. And anyone who joins The Co-op that evening will get the discount, too.

See you there!
