We are talking about food ladies!!!  :)

What specialties do you have at home, that you can not find any where else?

I am in Southwest Louisiana, and I know that Southeast Texas, and North Louisiana make some of these foods, but it is no where as good as it is here.  

Boudin

Cracklins

Crawfish Etoufee

Shrimp Creole

Fish Coubion

Gumbo

Rice Dressing

Sauce Piquante

Seafood Dressing

Stuff Fried Shrimp

I am going to stop here.....your turn.

If we leave here to move up North, I wonder if our taste buds would be satisfied.  I am sure it will do my waistline some good.  lol

Beer. Lots and lots of really good beer.

And cheese.

And, since we like both those things so much, we made beer-cheese soup so you can enjoy them at the same time.

Buckeyes  (Chocolate w/ peanut butter- not the nuts from the tree)

Not saying they can't be made elsewhere. but we are the Buckeye state :p

Some of the best beer and most breweries per capita in the world.

I'm in Reno NV and they have what they call an "Awful Awful Burger". It's supposed to be amazing but the pics I've seen it just looks like a greasy gross burger to me. I've never had one.

We do have a bunch of casinos with every kind of restaurant and buffet you could imagine so there is no shortage of food choices.

There is also a big Basque population here so there are a decent amount of Basque restaurants.
