Final foods: Which state will be crowned champion?

The eight foods remaining in Roll Call’s Taste of America tournament will make a tasty spread when they’re served together. But only one will be crowned champion.

It has been a wild five weeks of voting in the tournament, which pits favorite foods from across the country against one another in an epic clash for culinary bragging rights. The finalists will be served and the winner will be announced at a June 25 reception at Nationals Park in Washington, D.C., during the Congressional Baseball Game. 

Here are this year’s finalists:

  • Utah: Cherry cobbler
  • Oregon: Blackberry pie
  • Iowa: Bacon
  • Illinois: Deep dish pizza
  • Maine: Lobster roll
  • Maryland: Crab cakes
  • Kentucky: Fried chicken
  • North Carolina: N.C. barbecue

The National Restaurant Association is co-sponsoring this year’s tournament, along with the National Beer Wholesalers Association, the National Pork Producers Council, and the American Frozen Food Institute.

Voting in the Taste of America closes June 20. Cast your vote now!
