DINING: State Fair finds

Yes, some of it is deep fried. And it won’t be mistaken for health food. But this year’s new culinary offerings at the Fairgrounds showed surprising range.

As in the past, I’ve used the Fair’s Signature Food Competition (which features the single dumbest voting process I’ve ever heard of for a culinary battle) merely as a starting point in finding what’s new. And, once again, some of my favorites proved to be those less heralded.
