Regional differences in newspaper Food sections

And (if you do note regional differences), how does your region affect your own section's Food coverage?
Thank you for participating in the Q&A! I enjoyed reading your early answers--they are very thoughtful and generous.

For example, the San Francisco Chronicle’s Food section has a lot of very interesting and sometimes edgy pieces about the restaurant scene and the wine community. The Chicago Tribune has solid stories mostly for the home cook and few travel/food stories. Though Kristin Eddy, a staff writer in Chicago, just did a wonderful and award-winning series on spices, in which she traveled widely. (Kristin used to work at The Post, as a news aide in Food. )
