Regional Specialties Preview for #SundaySupper
by Sue Lau | Palatable Pastime
A taste of home. Everyone knows something that is commonly prepared around the place they live that everybody loves. It can really warm the heart, ground you, and provide the communal sustenance of friendship, common background and local flavor.
For me, growing up in St. Louis, I was weaned on barbecued pork steaks, toasted ravioli, St. Paul sandwiches, cracker crust pizza with provol cheese, gooey butter cakes, and of course, Ted Drewe’s Frozen Custard.
Bill and I moved away after we married, being wrapped up in that machine we call the US Military. Every few years we found a new place to call home. Across the south, with specialties like whole fried catfish and an astonishing array of barbecue, to Florida with all its seafood (rock shrimp are a particular favorite of mine!) and then back north to Ohio where at long last, having settled in Cincinnati, we have come to enjoy the spoils of Cincinnati chili and of course, goetta.
It all has become woven into the tapestry of our lives. Food memories span the years from many places, breaking bread with many faces. And now, with some places far in the distant past we can talk with friends and say “Do you remember the food they had at…” and immediately receive knowing nods and smiles.
This Sunday, over fifty bloggers from all over the planet will share some of their favorite regional specialty recipes with you. And on Sunday evening we will gather around the table for a fun and lively Twitter chat at 7 p.m. ET. To join the conversation, use the hashtag #SundaySupper and feel free to jump in anytime and share your own meatball recipes, tips and ideas!
I hope you will join us! Bring your favorite local recipes to share!
