About This Quiz

When you live in a place, you become that place. You listen to the music other people listen to, if for no other reason than that is what is on the radio. You see the movies everyone else sees, especially if you make a habit of seeing movies with friends. Even your television habits will be shaped by the world around you.

It is the same with food. Living in a place, one has to eat what is there, and eventually, we develop tastes for the local cuisine. While most food is divided up by nationality, the US is unique in that it has wildly varied regional cuisines. Just as the deep south is different from Chicago, so too will be the food they eat in these places. Immigrant groups have brought their food customs here, and these have blended, fused, and mutated into what we call American food.

How long have you lived at your current address? Have you somehow managed to get by without embracing the local food scene? If you moved somewhere else, would you find it strangely difficult to state your current tastes? How local have you become? It's time to find out! See if we can guess where you live based on your taste in food!
