On the subject of local foods though, I am partial to the very occasional Philly steak :)
I'm not a big hard pretzel fan,but in the states,were have pretzels made with rye and pumpernickel flour,which are pretty decent dipped in mustard.I prefer those bid soft chewy pretzels.
We do make a great Philly cheese steak here.The secret is semi frozen rib steak,sliced thin,and Kraft Cheese Wiz.
I do enjoy the occasional freshwater crayfish,and freshwater,as well as saltwater clams and oysters with just a touch of fresh lemon,and coctail sauce.
I'm also a big fish n'chips fan.My friend Sharon,who hails from London,showed me how to do a "proper" batter.
OK...I'm hungry now.:)
