Icons: Barbacoa & Italian Beef (The Feed Podcast)

On this week’s show, we begin an occasional series on iconic dishes that define a particular place. We begin with a pair of meaty ones: tender barbacoa from Mexico City and meaty Italian beef sandwiches from Chicago. We were thinking about what constitutes an iconic dish, and decided we would take an occasional look at how that dish has come to define a certain place.

No surprise here, but Rick chose barbacoa from Mexico City and I dove into the history of the Italian Beef sandwich in Chicago, rather than the over-exposed deep dish pizza.
