Gourmet Gaffe is a Z-machine interactive fiction game written with Inform 7 and is © 2011 by Hulk Handsome.

In this one-room joke game, you play as the inventor of the back scratcher. The Queen of France is pleased with you until you ask for ketchup at her dining table. Sacré bleu! Now you must escape her dungeon before you're thrown to the mimes!

This solution is by David Welbourn, and is based on Release 1 of the game.
