Do you know what was voted Ireland’s favourite take-away dish? How about what brand of tinned soup did Andy Warhol famously paint?

Welcome to a very special edition of our weekly Food Quiz for Food Month at The Irish Times. Put your knowledge of all things gastronomic to the test by attempting these five themed rounds of 10 questions, compiled by Michelle and Greg Bowe who write the food blog, The Greedy Couple.
