I was always very interested in regional foods. There are favorites you grew up with, then local foods you might eat on a trip somewhere. It's a neat way to experience the local culture and maybe learn a little history too. My all-time favorite is Scrapple. What on earth is that, one might ask. Pork products and cornmeal, all fried up! It is a Pennsylvania Dutch food, and according to Wikipedia, "the first pork food invented in America". Learn all about it here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scrapple. My grandmother worked as a teen at the Scrapple factory in Philly, and would never touch it!
Since I was on a "Regional Food Kick" I found a great website to order Irish and British foods: http://foodireland.com/. I wanted to be able to enjoy the teas I had in Ireland, home to a dear friend of mine. Irish/British foods have some really great names like Yorkshire Pudding, Spotted Dick, Digestives (cookies!). The website is really fun to read.
