California Cooking

And now for something completely different...

I just came back from a lovely weekend in California. Having grown up in New York, there is definitely something different about the West Coast, and among the best things to recommend it is the food. California takes a different approach to cooking, and I wish I had been in a situation to experiment. Things that make the Golden State a taste sensation:

  • Fresh (and local!) produce rules the day.

  • A cleaner environment makes for yummier food.

  • More daring use of delicious nuts.

  • Wine and wine tasting in scenic vinyards.

  • In-And-Out Burger. I love it.

I hope to return to Cali one day, but with a skillet in tow.
