Thanksgiving Post Script

It seems "As American as apple pie" is a bit of a misnomer, at least on Thanksgiving. Check out this neat graphic courtesy of The New York Times that shows by state what everyone ate on Turkey Day, or apparently in the Northeast, Not-Turkey Day.


  1. That's pretty cool.
    Good Holiday that Thanksgiving although I frown upon the obligatory "tired of turkey? cook this" articles in every magazine.

  2. It's really amazing how much you can tell about the regional and cultural differences across the country just by looking at what people eat.

    If you were to narrow the filter to just my apartment, the list would include persimmons, Indian food and sushi. Not sure what that says about me.

  3. Where was the section for Tofurkey?

    And does the outstanding preponderance of mac n cheese searching in the South mean that they eat more of it there, or that it's a rarity that requires research to prepare?
