    Jambalaya---New Orleans,Louisiana
    Creole jambalaya originates from the French Quarter of New Orleans.It consists of meat and vegetables mixed with rice. Traditionally, the meat always includes sausage of some sort, often a smoked sausage such as Andouille, along with some other meat or seafood, frequently pork, chicken, crayfish, or shrimp. The vegetables are usually a sofrito-like mixture known as the "holy trinity" in Creole and Cajun cooking, consisting of onion, celery, and green bell pepper, though other vegetables such as carrots, tomatoes, chilis, and garlic are also used. After browning and sauteeing the meat and vegetables, rice, seasonings, and broth are added and the entire dish is cooked together until the rice is done.

    Lexington Barbecue---Lexington, North Carolina

    The Lexington style of barbecue (occasionally referred to as Piedmont style) uses a vinegar-based "red" sauce that is seasoned with ketchup, vinegar, and pepper, along with other spices that vary from recipe to recipe. It is most common in the Piedmont (central) and western areas of the state. This style uses only the pork shouldersection of the pig. As with other styles of barbecue, the recipes vary widely, and can include many different ingredients, and range from slightly sweet to hot and spicy. The sauce also serves as the seasoning base for "red slaw" (also called "barbecue slaw"), which is coleslaw made by using Lexington-style barbecue sauce in place of mayonnaise.

    Idi Amin Dada once had 2 Americans for lunch. I do not know if that is true or not but they claimed he killed 2 statesmen from America and ate them.

    Boston cream pie---Boston,MA

    A Boston cream pie is a cake that is filled with a
    custard or cream filling and frosted with chocolate.Despite its name, it is in fact a cake, and not a pie. Owners of the Parker House Hotel in Boston states that the Boston cream pie was first created at the hotel by Armenian-French chef M. Sanzian in 1856.The cake he created, called "Parker House Chocolate Cream Pie", consisted of two layers of French butter sponge cake filled with crème pâtissière and brushed with a rum syrup, its side coated with crème pâtissière overlain with toasted sliced almonds, and the top coated with chocolate fondant.

    Lafayette, Louisiana -- Crawfish

    Crawfish, also known as crayfish, crawdads, freshwater lobster and, if you’re feeling really authentic, mudbugs, are freshwater crustaceans. They’re delicious, no matter how they’re cooked, and Lafayette as cornered the market, not only because they harvest some 90% of North America’s total crawfish, but because they’ve found a way to eat them at every meal, as snacks or appetizers or main dishes.

    Denver, Colorado -- The Denver Omelet

    The humble Denver Omelet is known across America, often under different names, but the ingredients remain the same: diced ham, onions and green bell peppers, topped with cheese and served with hash browns. Its exact origin is in dispute; some claim it was initially a sandwich invented by Western pioneers, with its bread removed once it became more popular in Denver as a breakfast meal than a sandwich, while others claim its origin is French.

    The Half-Smoke — Washington, D.C.
    Famous in Washington, the half-smoke might appear, to the untrained eye, to be a simple hot dog. Instead, it’s a half-pork, half-beef jumbo dog, smoked to perfection and served with herbs, onions and chili sauce. Even President Obama has been known to take time out of his busy schedule to visit the best half-smoke joints in the city.

    Peach Cobbler — Atlanta

    In the Deep South, cobblers most commonly come in single fruit varieties and are named as such, such as peach cobbler. The Deep South tradition also gives the option of topping the fruit cobbler with a scoop or two of vanilla ice cream.

    Chicago-Style Hot Dog

    Probably Chicago's most distinctive dish, and when done right, my absolute favorite original creation from this city. A proper Chicago dog features a steamed natural casing all-beef hot dog in a poppy-seed bun, topped with mustard, chopped onions, neon green relish, tomato wedges, a dill pickle spear, sport peppers, and celery salt.
