Local food enjoyed by a single man exploring the world at human speed.

Keywords: pasta, pizza
|Although St. Louis doesn't have a staple must-have food item, it has some food variations unique to the area. I've tried two of those food eaten almost only in St. Louis: the toasted ravioli and the St. Louis pizza, with provel cheese.|
First the toasted ravioli are basically
classic beef-stuffed ravioli noodles, which are then they are covered
in bread crumbs and fried. They are usually served with marinara
sauce and sprinkled with Parmesan cheese. I bought mine at a local
deli counter inside a grocery store, they were very tasty.
Another thing unique to St. Louis area
apparently is the provel cheese. No, it's not short for 'provolone',
although provolone is one of the three cheeses on which provel is
based on. The two others are cheddar and swiss. That gives provel a
unique taste. It's used on pizza, salads and sandwiches here. Since
it has a low melting point, it has a gooey texture at room
I have to mention another food created
in St. Louis that is now known all over the Americas yet still
unknown to the rest of the world apparently... peanut butter! :-)
Yes, it's a doctor from St. Louis who asked a food company to create
a peanut butter paste to his patients without teeth to chew meat
could get some proteins. Now, you know my love for that protein
source. Created in 1890, the peanut butter was presented to the
world during the World Fair here in St. Louis in 1904 (the same year
that St. Louis stole the Olympics from Chicago).
Pizza, Colombian style
Deep Chicago pizza
