The jonnycake wars between East Bay and West Bay/South County are all about style: thin and made with cold milk, or thick and made with hot water. Jigger’s (in West Bay) are dense and chewy, made by pouring boiling water over stone-ground white-flint cornmeal. Savory with fried eggs or sweet with maple syrup, these cakes stick to your ribs.
