Recently the Huffington Post revealed which dinner recipes are most googled by each state. It is based on Google Trends – which while not exactly scientific, is a fun way to see food tastes across the USA. You might find the results somewhat unexpected:

I found this quite fascinating and some really surprised me. It shows white meat in the north, red meat in the south, seafood in non-coastal states, and some real niche foods like egg burger, paneer and rice balls. Ace! Did your state match up to what you expected?
