Regional Foods Face-Off — America’s Best Cook Bracket Challenge, Round 2

by in Shows, April 17th, 2014

Round 2 Bracket ChallengeAmong the many things that define the United States, foods are at the top of that list. And every region has its specialty, whether it is lobster rolls from the East, chili from the North, shrimp and grits from the South or tacos from the West. On the new series America’s Best Cook, Sundays at 9|8c, home cooks from the four corners of the country have come to Food Network headquarters to be mentored by FN chefs and battle it out for a chance at winning the title of America’s Best Cook.

To coincide with the show, FN Dish has launched the Regional Foods Face-Off, a bracket challenge in which you, the fans, can vote for your favorite regional food. The editors have narrowed it down to four famous dishes from each of the regions, but after four rounds of voting, only one dish will come out on top. Round 2 is now closed. Vote in Round 3.

Now it’s up to you, Food Network fans, to vote for the regional dish you think has the most merit.

Here’s how it works:

In Round 1, you voted on 16 dishes to narrow them down to eight.

In Round 2, starting today, you get to vote on the remaining eight dishes to narrow them down to four.

In Round 3, starting April 24, you’ll get to vote on the remaining four dishes to narrow them down to two.

And in Round 4, starting May 1, you’ll vote for one of the final two, and the winner will be announced on May 8.

Vote below by selecting one dish from each group.

    I am not very happy that you didn't include the central states. We have numerous awesome cooks in north dakota*!! I am one of them and you are missing out on some amazing cooks. And unfortunately we don't have big enough towns here to open a 4 star restaurant, but some of are food compares and goes beyond any 4 star restaurant… you really shouldn't pass us by!!!!

    Maryland crabcakes are on just about every seafood restaurant's menu in the US. Missed the boat on this one.

    Can you please post a picture of the map you have on the set of the TV show. If I am not mistaken you are missing the Upper Pennisula of Michigan. That is very offensive to the people of the UP!! We are not part of Lake Superior, we are part of the state and deserve to be part of the country on the map!!!

      No, you're not mistaken…I've noticed the same thing, and it's been bugging the hell out of me! Apparently the U.S. ends at the northern Wisconsin state line?? So disappointed in the Food Network.

    I can't believe that one of the contestants has won a million dollars in a cooking contest. Maybe you you should have some rules that put people like her in a different category from the average "home cook." It just doesn't seem fair.

    Food Network has REALLY gone down the tubes. Rarely watch because it is Giada and Guy! Giada would not be on Food Network if not for her name. She was DRUNK and totally hitting on Bobby Flay on the last Thanksgiving show. Hope they drop her SOON!!!!!!!!!!!
