Its mostly just people whose lives are take over by politics that hate other regions, most of us don't have any problem with the coasts, the south and the midwest. we love our country. the divided politically obsessed subgroup of our population is just a loud minority.

70% of Americans are homeowners. They want housing appreciation, not flat or declining prices.
You don't even own a house - the hell are you talking about?

I was mostly making a joke (hot dish was a bit broader than lutefisk), but hot dish is fairly representative of midwest cuisine in general. In Iowa you'd see something pretty similar at a pot luck, they're just calling the same dish a casserole even though condensed soup and noodles are a common base.

And of course, in Iowa they traditionally put tater tots on it.

I am not a casserole fan, to say the least! And the term "hot dish" makes it even more nauseating.

But how do you feel about jello salad?

Personally in many ways I'd be happy to move back to the midwest, but the climate and cuisine would be the two hardest things for me.

Well, the "cuisine" of rural North Dakota is quite a bit different than the cuisine of Chicago, for starters...

True, though I'd say Chicago is something of an eastern island in a midwest sea. In any case it's an outlier.

Not to mention Chicagoland also has a COL above the national average, and much higher than the regional average, so you're giving up at least a chunk of the primary benefit of relocating from the coast to the midwest.

Madison and the Twin Cities are more complicated, since if you're talking about dining out there's pretty broad dining options, likewise if you're going to a pot luck of adult professionals someone probably will bring spring rolls or chips and salsa. But if you go to a family potluck, odds are good you'll see a lot of midwest cuisine.

Milwaukee is a far better food town than Madison; so is Detroit. So is Cleveland and so on. I live in the Midwest and haven't been to a "pot luck" in decades and never see the food you're talking about. Maybe in some rural areas? I don't know. But the Midwest you're talking about died a long time ago for me, at least. I remember a bit of it as a kid in the 70s and 80s, though. Then again, you assumed a regional/rural thing like "hot dish" existed throughout the entirety of the Midwest, so...

Ah okay, yeah i have never had hot dish or lutefisk.

I have had tatter tots, where i live there is nothing really unique about our cuisine.
I probably eat the same things as someone from Florida or Washington state eats.

We are proud of our juicy lucy's (burgers with cheese INSIDE the patties... but its not like we eat it every day
