Tacos de Canasta (Basket Tacos for a Party or Potluck). Tacos may not seem like the kind of food that you should assemble an hour before eating, which is why I've never thought of them as a particularly good potluck dish. But that's because, until recently, I'd never encountered tacos de canasta, a special variety of taco sold by bicycle vendors in Mexico that are made in advance and get better as they sit. This is the potluck taco you've been waiting for.

Though its food scene has really taken off, at its heart Ireland is still a meat and potatoes kind of country. And who could blame them? Champ is a simple but delicious dish where creamy mashed potatoes are mixed with a good helping of milk and butter and studded with scallions. Served with sausages, this is a complete main course, and the green parsley adds a festive St. Patrick's Day touch.

South Carolina: Hoppin' John: Hoppin' John is the traditional black-eyed pea, rice, and pork dish served in South Carolina.
