Utica has Chicken Riggies, Greens, Tomato Pie and Half-Moons as semi-official standard-bearers for signature dishes. Now a woman in Rome is proposing the Chocolate Chip Cookie as Rome's signature dish.
But I can think of ANOTHER item that may truly be Rome's signature food: Turkey Joints!
We may be poor in these here parts . . . but we eat very well, thank you!
