If you are hungry for something terribly tasty, try a Taylor Pork Roll, made by Taylor Provisions of Trenton, N.J. The company was founded by John Taylor in 1856. Noted food writer Andrew Zimmern says that the idea of a pork roll might date back to the Revolutionary War. Whatever the date, they make us hungry.
They are sold by Doumar’s, the classic drive-in restaurant in Norfolk.
A note on the logo. The “O” with the cross in Taylor comes from the way you cook the pork rolls. In order to fry them, you have to keep them flat. And to keep them flat, you have to cut little lines into the pork in four places so that when it cooks, it stays flat and doesn’t curl up.
