NORTH CAROLINA: Ham biscuits
In the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains, some 90 wandering miles northeast of Asheville (and not far from the Tennessee border), you might stumble onto Blowing Rock, named for a huge cliff over Johns River Gorge, where the wind blows so hard that it sometimes snows upward in the winter. The town itself is a quiet hamlet with a charming café on Main Street named Sonny's Grill; in this three-table, eight-stool eatery you will find one of the most delicious quick bites of the South: a ham biscuit. It's a stunning harmony of two dramatically disparate ingredients: complex, zesty cured country ham and a pillowy biscuit with creamy insides that readily absorb the ham's savory drippin's. A pair of these and a few cups of coffee or sweet iced tea are an utterly simple and totally satisfying meal.
