____ Food, I Heart Thee!

Here's some metatrivia for you: The term "trivia" actually originates from the Latin term meaning the intersecting point of three roads. Therefore, in honor of our sumptuous LA meal deal launching on Thursday, we are throwing some trivia at you from a country whose language stems from Latin. If you have the foodie chops to identify the country in question, we'll sprinkle $10 in HomeRun credits on ya! Just enter before Wednesday at midnight on FacebookTwitterPinterest, Google+, or this blog post, and you'll be rarin' and ready to go!

 

Clue #1: Wine is seen as its own food group in this country; children as young as 12 are allowed to have a little wine diluted with water during their meals.

Clue #2: This famous export is usually baked in a wood-fired oven, and packed with fresh vegetables, thinly sliced ham, salami, artichokes and olives.

Clue #3: Pasta is such an integral part of this country's cuisine that the Pope set quality standards way back in the 13th century.

Clue #3: Most dishes coming from the northern part of the country include meat and seafood, while southern dishes always include tomatoes.
