Maybe this topic has been done to death, but if so, I don't remeber it.  A post on another thread got me to thinking about the topic of parochial food prejudices.  No, not your hatred of the crummy food you had growing up in Catholic school.  We all know (or maybe even are) those narrow-minded people who kvetch about one certain type of food or drink that just doesn’t get done correctly outside of their own state/county/town.  I’m thinking of people like North Carolinians (and other southerners) and their various BBQs, New Yorkers and their bagels, Texans and their chili etc.  Are these prejudices more psychological than gastronomical?  Which ones have you experienced or do you, yourself hold?  Personally, I have a hard time accepting the fact that a good crabcake can be made outside of the mid-Atlantic region generally and Maryland, in particular.  Any thoughts?
