I had some family in town from Pittsburgh. They brought me nutroll, for which that city is known.
My wife is from Columbus, OH and she introduced me to Cincinnati chili which is now a staple in our house.
My own family is from Chicago, so when I go back I make sure to partake of this light lunch: polish sausage, which Chicago style fixings.
What are the city or state specific foods that one simply has to try?
Oh, I would also really appreciate more pie recipes. I'm finding thinking about food all of the time has given my brain a nice respite from Newt/Mitt, Newt/Mitt, Newt/Mitt....AHHHHHHHH!
