I'm thinking about bad-ass American states, and Jamie Oliver's new save-a-town (in West Virginia) . And MacGyver.
Ok, I know there's a lot in America's food culture that's lacking. But, as a voracious reader of both Fannie Farmer and The Joy of Cooking when I was a girl, I know there's some serious U.S. of A. cuisine. Little House on the Prairie books, too. My favourite museum in D.C. is the National Museum of the American Indian, and I had a kick butt Lemon Guava Agua Fresca the last time.
I always think of Indian Pudding as the quintessential New England Native dish. Not lobster or blueberry pie--anyone can eat those (though, uh, everyone shouldn't be eating lobster).
But is it worth veganizing? I've only had it once, and it kind of sucked. What do you think?
