from the Italian immigrants, Sticky buns, City Chicken, Shoofly pie, Lebanon bologna, Italian Wedding soup, to Hershey’s Chocolate to Heinz 57. Pennsylvania is as diverse in foods as the settlers who founded this state. The English, Germans, French, West Indians, Italians, Polish, and the Pennsylvania Dutch created their cuisines. They sustained their families with some foods by the 18th Century. The first Quaker’s started baking peach pies and tarts by using trees the Indians had brought from Florida, left by the Spanish. Serving hearty meals including soups and stews provided the early colonists with their nourishment. Philadelphia not only considers itself the birthplace of the Philly Cheesesteak, but also to ice cream. The German descendents brought the Sticky buns, along with Scrapple can be traced back. The way of Dutch cooking hasn’t changed in 200 years.
