Corn Dog

Corn batter wrapped around a hot dog on a stick dunked in the deep fryer long enough for the batter to become a crisp-surfaced blanket of sweet bread: That is a corn dog. It can be found in convenience stores everywhere and is emblematic of state fairs, where they are a diplomatic union of animal husbandry (swines) and agronomy (corn), at once nutritionally balanced – meat and vegetable in a single foodstuff – yet seductively dissolute. It is believed they first were served as midway eats during the 1940s, either at the Texas or Minnesota fair.
