First, this is my first post on Chowhound... long-time reader, first time poster. Great site.
Anyways, Montreal has bagels. Philly has pretzels. San Marzano, Italy, has tomatoes. Chicago's got pizza.
What is your neck of the woods famous for? And while we're at it, why don't you tell us where we can get the absolute best of the best: your favourite bagel, pretzel, or pizza haunt.
For myself, I'm from the prairies of Canada, probably the wheat growing capital of the world. Numerous times I've been watching cooking programs only to hear chefs - often British - point out that they're using "good Canadian flour." Since I'm from here, I suppose I've never used standard or "bad" flour... we've just always bought Canadian flour and never thought twice about it, but apparently it's something special to some people.
What's famous in your region?
