I was in Philly for the last couple of days and while waiting in the airport last evening, the Philadelphia Enquirer had an extensive article about gravy. Well since I certainly enjoy East Tennessee gravy such as sawmill, chicken, red eye and about any others known to man, I knew this would be a good article. To my surprise, it was all about red sauce such as marinara, spaghetti sauce, etc. Nothing about what I expected. This is another interesting example of regional definitions. The article was almost two complete pages listing the top ten gravy preparations and why. All were about either marinara or spaghetti sauce.
