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 have any regional
foods that I have left out, please let me know. I also welcome your
American Regional Cuisine articles by
What's Cooking America.
