Well, if I still lived in the Bay Area, it would probably be sourdough bread.

If I was still in Wilmington it would be eastern NC barbecue with pepper slaw and Brunswick stew.

Since I'm in east Tennessee I guess it's moonshine

Toasted ravioli, which I think is a St. Louis specialty - the ravioli is breaded, fried and served with marinara and a sprinkling of parmesan cheese

In NC, King's or Smithfield's BBQ, and/or shrimpburgers from the Big Oak drive-in.

Apples! Oh man do we have some delicious apples here!

Rainer cherries are also a favorite.

Back in England I would say bangers and mash was a favorite along with gooseberry crumble and custard.

We don't really have anything special. We're Kansas.

We do have a fantastic local eatery called Douglas Street Eats that has awesome cottage pie. I thought it was good before (it was previously the British Banger Cafe but they went out of business and someone bought it and reopened it), but now with the new owner it's way, WAYYYYYY better. I go there every Friday for lunch. $5 for a giant serving of cottage pie, a dinner roll, and curry beans. And the service and atmosphere couldn't be better. AND they have a buy 8, get the 9th free loyalty card. Their bangers and mash is pretty good too, but it doesn't hold a candle to their cottage pie. They also have sandwiches, but I feel that's such as waste when cottage pie is an option lol.

Apples! Oh man do we have some delicious apples here!
OH YES! I LOVE real Washington apples. They don't taste the same by the time they get here. A lot of the produce is very good. We used to go to Tacoma Boys all the time for fresh produce. We went to a farmer's market type place when I got Logan, and they were pretty cheap too. Asparagus for about $1/lb! That's unheard of's closerto $3-$4/pound here.

There's a little place near me that makes the BEST bbq baked potatoes. You have a baked potato stuffed with chopped beef and sliced sausage, butter, sweet or spicy bbq sauce, cheese, and anything else you want on it like bacon bits or sour cream or whatever. Sooooooo good. Oh, man. I want one so bad now. I think when I get back to Texas, I'm going to have to go get one.

Now I must find out what poutine is and eat it. Way too many mentions of it lol.

We don't really have a local dish per se. But I do love me some freshly-picked local wild mushroom in a good mushroom soup. Mmmm.

I live in Oklahoma.... it's a cultural dead end. lol I can't think of an 'okie' food.

TX? BBQ and Tex Mex and Authentic Mexican food. I've had a lot of different types of barbeque and Texas is by far my favorite. I love good tamales in particular. Chicken fried steak is another. There's a bunch of great towns to kolaches and particularly jalapeno 'kolaches' (I know some places only the fruit filled kind are kolaches, but most people call the sausage ones kolaches too here) in too.

I miss Texas.
