Nevada Has No Signature Dish Yet!


Chef Brian Massie and Chef Megan Romano

Editor's Note: Nevada 150 is a yearlong series highlighting the people, places and things that make up the history of the state.

Louisiana has its Cajun and Creole cuisines, Pennsylvania its iconic Philly cheesesteaks. Nevada?

Yeah, we got nothin'.

It's not for lack of trying. The state's population hub of Las Vegas has taken its place among the best restaurant cities in the country, maybe even the world. But, asked to name a local cuisine or signature dish, experts are at a collective loss.

Big Dinner with Brian Massie & Las Vegas Bakery Chef Megan Romano


Chef Brian Massie and Chef Megan Romano

In April, Massie took Chef Megan Romano from Las Vegas Bakery Chocolate & Spice and Herbs & Rye's Nectaly Mendoza to New York to cook dinner at the James Beard House.

"It was fun and stressful" he says. "But it wasn't about the stress or the cooks or needing to get the food out or all that adrenalin. It was a bunch of great friends and great Chefs doing great food. There wasn't a dish that was the centerpiece, it was the combination of the direction of the menu with the cocktails and desserts that were all put together well." Among his dishes were octopus posole and duck and waffles.

Fair Foods ~ Easy to Make at Home


Trending with Las Vegas Cake Bakeries

Nobody would argue that they're dishes anyone should, or even want to, eat every day.

Still, there's something undeniably and nostalgically appealing about indulging once in a while on the dishes that we indelibly link to summertime visits to the amusement park, state fair or carnival midway.

Corn dogs. A cup of shaved ice. A candy apple. All belong to a niche of the culinary universe beloved as much for the memories they evoke as the flavors they offer.

While all are best enjoyed in their natural habitat, many can be made easily at home. It's toward that end that we asked a few area chefs for recipes, either traditional or tweaked, that home cooks can use to re-create those summertime trips.

Take, for instance, corn dogs, the quintessential summertime midway entree. Sure, they're staples at food festivals year-round and, sure, they're great at Super Bowl and tailgate parties, but nothing beats a speared and battered frank for a stroll along the midway...

14 Places for Casual American Dining

Chocolate & Spice

7293 W. Sahara Ave.; 702-527-7772

Everything we had at Chocolate & Spice reflected the meticulous attention to detail that owner Megan Romano has always brought to her pastries — and everything else. We loved the wedding soup, a grilled Brie sandwich, grilled Kalbi beef ribs and two choco-centric pastries, one with clouds of chocolate mousse, the other infused with coffee. (1/25/12 H.K.R.)

Life ~ Food & Dinning


Chef Megan Romano in Las Vegas Review Journal

There are a heck of a lot of kitchen gadgets in the market, ready to fill needs Chefs & home cooks didn't even know existed. You can prepare hard cooked eggs on very un-egglike shapes, microwave bacon to form bowls, cook hamburgers that are shaped like hot dogs or use a special gadget to slice your bananas just in case a plain ol' table knife doesn't do it for you.

But some gadgets are actually quite useful. In the Review Journal test kitchen we like terra cotta brown sugar savers; you just soak them and put them in your container of brown sugar & they'll keep it soft, even in this desert. They can be used over and over, and while some people advocate using a slice of apple instead, we prefer the terra cotta because it can't rot like a piece of apple... To complete article
