About Regional Flavor
Vintage diners continue to flourish in the Granite State, where the maple-syrup consciousness is high. Thus, it is a great place to have breakfast. But don’t neglect first-rate seafood down by the shore and one of the best turkey dinners in the east up in the Lakes Region. Good ice cream shops are found throughout New Hampshire.
New Hampshire Regional Specialties
High whole-grain consciousness, a bounty of maple syrup, and the tradition of farm-worker hours make New Hampshire a significant breakfast state. At Polly's Pancake Parlor in the White Mountains, stone-ground buckwheat, corn, or whole wheat flour pancakes can be dressed with fancy-grade syrup, granulated maple sugar, or butter-thick maple spread.
Grape-Nuts pudding and Grape-Nuts ice cream are big favorites in this part of the world. What's good about adding the hard little pebbles of cereal to creamy dessert is that the cereal softens to become ribbons of earthy grain that contrasts so nicely to its ethereal medium. In a state with high ice cream consciousness, Grape-Nuts ice cream is a must-eat sensation.
