American Regional Foods - Mid Atlantic American Cooking
Delaware - Maryland - New Jersey - New York - Pennsylvania - Washington D.C.
This section of my web site
is a celebration of one of the world's greatest cuisines - American Cuisine.
It tells the story of what Americans eat and why. Many people think that
American food has become homogenized and nationalized, but the following
articles, history, and recipes show that American regional cuisine is very
much alive. It has expanded to include new and exciting foods and dishes
that we now call our own. Most of us grow up taking local specialties for
granted. It is when we move away that we realize our beloved dish is missing
and just how much we enjoyed it. Even if we can find it in other others of
the country, it never tastes quite as good as when we had it in our hometown
and our mother and/or grandmother made it.
pages are a "work in progress," and it will take me some time to
completely finish the different regions. If you know of any regional
foods that I have left out, please let me know. I also welcome your
