Ohio is the heartland. If that word doesn't conjure up images of baskets full of fresh vegetables, white and golden ears of corn, and buckets of shiny red apples, what else would. Ohio Cuisine may never really be something that is distinctly Ohioan, because we’re a part of the Midwest and people living just over the border in Indiana or Pennsylvania have access to almost identical food products. However, a number of foods and food products originated in Ohio, like Stadium Mustard and Stouffer's Dinners. The pride of Cincinnati is its famous chili, known as Skyline Chili, or simply Cincinnati chili. This dish, a version of chili con carne with sweet seasonings including cinnamon, cloves, allspice, and even chocolate. Welcome to the heartland!
