Croatian cookies, pepperoni rolls and cooking lunch on a steel blast furnace, this week we’re in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Food Tour Guide Sylvia McCoy tells up about riding inclines, watching racing perogis, and eating a sandwich topped with french fries and cole slaw. Of course, there’s beer, too as we talk Iron City.
