New York



New York

One of the original Thirteen Colonies, the Empire State borders on two Great Lakes, two Canadian provinces (Ontario and Quebec), and five states. Nothing exemplifies the American "melting pot" like New York City. Immigrants enriched New York with their culinary traditions. Jewish specialties like pastrami and all manner of Italian and Chinese dishes tantalized New Yorkers before gradually being absorbed into the culinary culture of the entire country. Russians, Puerto Ricans, Middle Easterners, Greeks -- the list of those who have added to the flavor of New York City spans the globe. Beyond New York City, rich agricultural land with diary and vegetable farms transitions into lakeside vineyards and orchards, rugged mountain country and the Great Appalachian Valley. New York State’s laudable wine country centers around the Finger Lakes, Long Island, Hudson Valley, and Lake Erie regions. Bagels were brought originally to Buffalo by Poles, where they met up with cream cheese, a New York creation. And, of course, Buffalo, New York, put the “Buffalo” in Buffalo wings.
