Regular blog readers may have noticed that Robb and I both appreciate the way maps can convey information. The current trend for "infographics" hits a real sweet spot with us.
This week, the New York Times published a fascinating map, examining the Thanksgiving foods. They teamed with Google to see what regionally distinct recipes were being researched around the country. (Click here for the full article -- it's fascinating.)
So what do you think, blog readers? Does this map make sense? There was a another recent New York Times article, looking at regional Thanksgiving recipes that stirred up a bit of controversy. I'm not clear what the hub-bub was about, but you can click here to compare. Interestingly, both articles produced sauerkraut as the regionally unique food for my home state of Maryland. But I wasn't apparently from the right part of Maryland (and didn't have Marylanders as parents) to have ever had sauerkraut with turkey.
Where are you from, and are you going to be eating any of the foods shown on these maps?
