Will fried chicken make our list of 10 Best Classic American Dishes? Here is Riverpark’s rather fussy rendition.
This weekend is the Fourth of July, our most sacred secular holiday, and now is the time to celebrate iconic American foods. While our favorite national dishes don’t quite have the terroir you might find in, say, Spain or the Fiji islands, where people have been living in the same spot for thousands of years (though Native American inventions like Indian pudding and succotash are exceptions), our recipes have elaborate and fascinating backstories, ingenious substitutions, and multiple variations.
But which ones will be pick? Tune in bright and early tomorrow morning to find out.
