HARO has a great St. Louis Food PR opportunity

HERE'S THE POSTING, STRAIGHT FROM THIS MORNING'S HELPAREPORTER.COM EMAIL – LET'S GET THE WORD OUT!:

31)Summary: St Louis food

Name: Mark Ellwood

Media Outlet: www.aol.com

Deadline: 05:12pm – 03 December

Query:

I'm working on the latest installment of the ongoing food-travel series, X
Marks The Spot, for AOLs new Food Culture channel (For an example of the
format, the first installment is already live at
http://www.slashfood.com/2009/09/15/x-marks-the-spot-rhode-island/)

The series focuses on local food — the treats/traditions/quirks that are
specific to a given area and intriguing to anyone else. The next area
were highlighting is St Louis. Its an intriguing area for one
thing, in one short summer here during the Worlds Fair of 1904, the city
helped introduce not just crunchy ice cones to the world, but peanut
butter, the hot dog, Dr Pepper, iced tea and candy floss too (so if any
city can lay claim to being the capital of the Fast Food Nation, then
its St Louis) Ted Drewes is a local institution for its frozen custards
and would be another brand wed spotlight here.

For this story, I'm looking for two things: 1) Additional suggestions of St Louis-area foods
to feature: either preparations ingredients or recipes or food brands that
started in the area. Of course, the quirkier the better. 2) Potential
experts who can comment on the areas food scene, to talk about what
makes it so special and why it's developed. I'd love to find food
historians or recipe testers/developers who can discuss this in detail.

The story will go live in late December.
