Food Named After Places / States

I love Wednesday night dinners. There is always a theme, the food is always delicious, and it’s a great group of people!
This week, we came up with the plan based on the fact that Michael, the host and chef, bought a “blow torch” and wanted to make Baked Alaska.

So I came up with a list of state and place themed foods! I included it at the bottom of the post. And, while we forgot about the Baked Alaska, we had one of my favorite meals so far!
