    Default Trivial pursuit

    Different question every day. Try to put your answers in spoilers.

    Which popular TV chef and cookbook author once worked in the White House as a nuclear energy budget analyst?

    Well, there's no stopping you, but that would make it pretty easy. The Google a Day quiz supposedly tests your ability to hunt the facts down using a search engine.

    I'd try and answer these off the top of your head, just to see if you know the answer or not. Although the quiz seems to have been written by a Yank, and most of us probably won't have a scooby-doo about White House staff, so some might be a bit tricky.

    It's only for fun.

    Aye, I'm being stupid. It's the other one that we can Google. Duh!

    Two guesses from me.

    Spoiler:
    Alton Brown or Wylie Dufreyn or however you spell it


    They're both a bit geeky and American.

    Answer:

    Ina Garten, known professionally as the Barefoot Contessa. Garten served as a budget analyst in the White House’s Office of Management and Budget during the Ford and Carter administrations, writing budget and policy papers on nuclear power plants. She left in 1978 to buy a specialty food store in the Hamptons.
