            The state with all of that blue and no orange at all is Wyoming, not Colorado.

            • Thanksgiving recipes most Googled in each state:

              http://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2...ery-state.html

              If you scroll down below the map, you'll find a top ten list for each state, together with pictures. I must confess that I've never heard of some of these dishes.

              Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

                  • The map doesn't represent the most Googled recipes in each state - it's the recipes searched for by those states more than by other states.

                    The researchers didn’t focus on the most popular dish in every state, because that would be “turkey” in all 50 states. They instead looked for the most distinct.

                    The dishes you see listed here are the result of the analysis. The numbers next to each dish indicate how much more popular searches for it were in a given a state than in the rest of the country during the week of Thanksgiving over the past 10 years. In Michigan, for example, “cheesy potatoes” is 9 times more commonly searched (relative to population size) than in the rest of the country.

                      Good point. Thank you.

                      It's still a fun map.

                          I think many were more intent on being humorous than accurate..revealed by their topical knowledge of culture, movies, etc...
                          I agree with #22.. USAians would fare no better in identifying UK counties.

                            Which would be like asking Limeys to name a state's . . . counties.
