Alabama: Fried Green Tomatoes

Alabama

Our first recipe for Americana Appetites is complete! Alabama’s Fried Green Tomatoes—people really eat these? Apparently! Their salty sweetness creates a combination unlike any other. If you’re looking for the best ones, make a lunch stop at the Irondale Cafe where they serve ’em up with their homemade remoulade sauce.

Food Type: Maryland Style Crabcakes

Crabcakes

If there’s one thing Marylanders know, it’s crustaceans. Maryland-style crabcakes populate menus across the country, yet never quite live up to their hometown flair anywhere other than the Old Line State. From the Old Bay to the jumbo lump meat, these crabcakes always leave your mouth watering for more—not to mention, a cold Natty Boh.

This week’s Food Type is the beginning of an upcoming collection that will bring to life homespun recipes from each of the 50 states. As we’re working our way from Maine lobster rolls all the way over to California fish tacos, these handlettered pieces will unfold into the Calligraphy Kitchen’s “Americana Appetite” series. Stay tuned and be sure to follow us on Facebook and Twitter to help out with your state’s recipe decision! Cheers, J.
