Moving to Colorado from the south I mentioned I would love to have a crawfish boil one day. That was met with a lot of EW!

Only regional food I can't hack is grits.

Reminds me of wallpaper paste.

I occasionally like to buy a ring of blood sausage from a great meat market in central MN.

I try not to dwell on the ingredients as I eat it.

They don't make much of a sound at all - someone could sneak up on you with a bowl of grits and you'd never know they were there.

Grits are made from hominy (alkaline-treated corn), polenta is made from ground dried corn. The difference in flavor is as different as night and day.

I don't find it notable, myself, and cook both fairly regularly. Just me.

I wouldn't call them night and day. Grits and, say, chili ... that would be night and day.
