Decent article in today's New York Times on the peculiar native cuisine of Little Rhody.
Overall, it's informative and entertaining. Perhaps almost as much as my posts on RI food. :>)
Kudos to the author for using the term "up the arm" in his discussion of weiners, and for his mention of George's of Galilee as a good source for stuffies and clamcakes.
Errors, omissions, quibbles:
1. No mention of snail salad.
2. No mention of grapenut custard.
3. Misspelling of jonnycake mecca Common's Lunch as Commons Lunch. The apostrophe gives it that extra-special quirky RI flavor.
4. Clamcakes are nothing at all like hushpuppies, and I think to even mention hushpuppies gives people a misleading impression of clamcakes.
