I noticed in one of the "fat" threads that Oklahoma has "official" food, so I did a search and found that many other states have "official" food. And once again, West Virginia gets short-changed and legislators have failed to provide us with "official" food. What would you want to see made the State food?

Pepperoni Buns...original...tastee...but not a food known all over the state...I would vote for 'fried green tomatoes, because they are about 30 days away from happening here....and the indians used them too...

DavidK and Threerun, you are both brilliant. It struck me as I read your posts that if you split a fresh pepperoni roll and topped it with fried green tomatoes you would have the perfect West Virginia sandwich! If you look at Oklahoma's "official" foods, none of it is specifically Oklahoma. So what would typify what most West Virginians would want as a full meal. Green tomatoes and pepperoni rolls would be a good starter. But what would be the main course with side dishes? As well as dessert? Apples are king in WV, perhaps a cobbler or plain apple pie?

The pepperoni roll is the painfully obvious choice.

This state is so varied. The mountains separate the peoples and tastes and cuisine vary by region. Wheeling has their own thing, North central their own thing, Southern WV..etc...

My choice for a main dish that might be widely popular is venison or fish (or some other game).

My choices from Southern WV are a chili dog with mustard, raw onion and slaw and banana pudding. Main dish and dessert. :)
