  1. 10 out of 11 – I got George Washington’s soup wrong!
    About #4 “Christopher Columbus introduced this spice to Europe as guinea pepper” I think you’re right that CC introduced capsicums to Europe, and also that they were known as ‘Guinea peppers’ in English, but he, of all people, would not have made the mistake of thinking they came from Guinea. With hard info difficult to come by in those days, it was common to attach a supposed though often incorrect country of origin to a product. Think of the turkey and the guinea pig.
