A respected amateur
If your result is 3 to 6 correct answers, your rank is a respected amateur. You admire nice food and may even dabble in cooking yourself. You have a great potential and can understand a recipe book without using a dictionary (most of the time). There is still a lot of room for improvement, so keep on learning new things.
A master chef
If you have answered correctly 6-9 questions, you are a master chef. You know what you eat, and you don’t need a recipe to know what to do with a tomato, eggplant and courgette.

All hail to the gastronomic master
If you scored 10 in this food quiz, meaning that you answered all the questions correctly, then you are a gastronomic master. You know your food from A to Z and can even create your own recipes. There is not much to say, you are basically a food guru.
