Foods named after places. That’s all.

Turkey legs have nothing to do with Turkey.It’s food day here on Gadling, meaning there’s never been a better day for talking about foods with place names. Grab a Danish and enjoy.

There are many wines named for their locales (all Champagne is), and many cheeses — even Cheddar. Sometimes, though, the food name has little to do with the corresponding place. French fries, for example, are not French food; they are named for the way the potatoes are cut. Hamburgers are not from Hamburg. They have them there, though.

Rather than attempt to rate all place-named foods on their geographical inaccuracies or flavor, I have elected simply to list them. Can you think of more? Add them in the comments below and I’ll pop ’em into the list with your name.

Why? Because the world needs comprehensive lists of things. Obviously.
