     This list is kind of cool thanks for sharing...Mass has a lot of foods...

  • Re: Did you know?

    I think I knew this. Not surprised about the blue crab being on Maryland's list of state foods. One-third of all blue crabs harvested in the U.S. come from Chesapeake Bay, although blue crab numbers are declining due to overfishing, pollution and loss of habitat.Sad

    Maryland's state dessert, the Smith Island Cake, is a rich, many-layered cake which was made famous by Frances Kitching, a great cook from Smith Island. (Smith Island is the only inhabited island in Chesapeake Bay.) The recipe calls for evaporated milk, and this is significant for some reason -- could it be that there are no cows on Smith Island to give fresh milk?Hmm  I clipped the recipe from the paper years ago, which calls for making a batch of vanilla cake batter, baked in about ten thin layers, then sandwiched between layers of chocolate frosting. Crushed candy between the layers, like Reese's cups or Snickers bars, are optional.

    Here is a link to the recipe and a picture of the Smith Island cake:

    There is also a peanut butter version.

    I noticed Nevada isn't on the list, either.  But then, having grown up there I can easily realize why.  Other than gambling and shows, there isn't much more.  

    Any guesses on what Army Bread is?  That's from Wyoming.

  • Re: Did you know?

    Of course the state food of Maine is the lobster and the state food of Vermont is maple syrup.  That's obvious.  I'm a native Vermonter but live in Texas now.  I've been here for 15 years, so now I'm a Texan (without the accent).  I love both foods.  I pretty much grew up on Vermont maple syrup, but I didn't know all that about Texas.  Doesn't matter because around here the food is mostly "Tex Mex", a combination of Mexican and southwestern food, and pecans are absolutely everywhere.

    Chicago-Pork and Beans? I don't get that one unless we're referring to the political climate. Chicago style hot dogs or pizza would make more sense.

    http://www.foodtimeline.org/foodfaq4.html
    What is the "state food" of Nevada? That's a difficult question to answer. Why? Because cuisine is not easily defined by political boundaries. It is a complicated mix of history, cultural/ethnic influence, and local commodities. Some states and cities are commonly associated with foods (Maryland crab cakes, Boston baked beans, Philly cheese steak, New York style pizza) others are harder to connect with a particular dish. If your teacher asks you to bring in a food that represents a particular state, you have several options:
    State-specific cookbooks
    Official state foods
    Popular commodities
    Other ideas
    Quick list of traditional state foods
    Historic notes & recipes
    Key Ingredeints: America by Food/Smithsonian Institution
    State cookbooks
    Most states have recipe books. Some of these are current (New Jersey Cookery, David & Gail Trimble), others are historic (History from the Hearth: A Colonial Michilimachinac Cookbook, Sally Eustice), and some concentrate on ethnic heritage (The Melting pot: Ethnic Cuisine in Texas, University of Texas at San Antonio). You can use the Library of Congress catalog to find these state-specific cookbooks. Run a subject search with these terms: cookery-state name (cookery-New Jersey or cookery-Iowa). Your librarian can help you find these books and bring them to your library. Old community/church cookbooks and restaurant menus are the best guides to the foods really enjoyed by local people at a particular time. These can be hard to find. Local libraries and historical societies are your best bet.
    We recommend:

    The American History Cookbook, Mark H. Zanger
    The American Regional Cookbook, Nancy & Arthur Hawkins
    The Fifty States Cookbook, Culinary Arts Institute
    Foods from the Founding Fathers, Helen Newbury Burke
    I Hear America Cooking, Betty Fussell
    The National Cookbook: A Kitchen Americana, Sheila Hibben
    New York World's Fair Cook Book: The American Kitchen, Crosby Gaige
    Taste of the States: A Food History of America, Hilde Gabriel Lee
    The Thirteen Colonies Cookbook, Mary Donovan
    All of these books offer classic recipes adapted for modern kitchens.
    State recipes on the Web
    1. Check the state's Dept. of Agriculture, or type "recipe" in the search Services Web site. Just click on the state you need.
    2. Local Legacies from the Library of Congress--select your state & check for food festivals, (Lettuce Days, Yuma AZ) and historic restaurants (Louis' Lunch, New Haven CT). No recipes here...but a great place to identify popular foods & culinary claims. Use Google to find more information: keyword "yuma lettuce days" or "gilroy garlic" returns festival page and history.
    3. Check foodways notes from Living History Museums in your state. Sometimes you will find recipes. If not, you can always contact the museum for suggestions.
    Official state foods
    Many states have adopted (by law!) official state beverages, fruits, vegetables, fish, etc. You will usually find these symbols on the kid's page or FAQ page. You can use your own recipe with the state symbol (Alabama's state fruit is the blackberry) as the featured ingredient. The standard URL format for each state is www.state.postalcode.us (EXAMPLES: www.state.nj.us, www.state.az.us). If you want to conduct a survey of all states (which ones have adoped milk as the official beverage?) use the symbols link on this site to go directly to all 50 states. Yes, this will take some time.
    A small handful of states have adopted official state dishes or baked goods. NOTE: there are no "official" recipes in recorded in state laws.

    "State Drink
    Coffee Milk is the official State Drink.
    Adopted on July 29, 1993.
    Coffee Milk is similar to chocolate milk but is made with coffee syrup. A coffee "cabinet" is coffee milk with ice cream (a coffee flavored milk shake). The main ingredient of this shake is "coffee milk," first introduced to Rhode Islanders in the early 1920's. Coffee milk became so popular in Rhode Island that in 1993 the Rhode Island state legislature voted coffee milk as the official state drink. It's called a "cabinet" because its originator kept his blender in a "kitchen cabinet." Autocrat Coffee Syrup is the preferred syrup in Rhode Island. Autocrat of Rhode Island is a leading provider of premium coffee, syrup, and coffee extract since 1895."

    A selected list of traditional state foods
    The following list was culled from a variety of sources and provides selections for every course: appetizer, bread, soup, salad, entree & dessert. It is by no means exhaustive. Some states/cities are well known for several foods. In these cases, we selected a few representative dishes. For states not commonly associated with a particular popular dish we selected a commodity from its state symbols. Please note: this list does not reflect the rich ethnic diversity and cultural heritage that blends together to compose American cuisine as a whole. It is meant only as a starting point.

    There isn't much by way of local commodities.  Maybe the State Tea could be Sagebrush Tea?  Guess the State Nut could be Pinions (pine nuts).  Not much else going for the state.
