California Cuisine - History, Features and Fun Facts

Each bullet point below has been explored in much further detail by fellow freelance writer Om Paramapoonya and presented in an article titled:



The facts are fun!  Did not the story of how the California-Style Pizza came to be.  Know it now!  :)



  • The term “California cuisine” was first used by food critics and magazine editors.
  • California has diverse agriculture and people. Thus, the cuisine reflects the variety of local produce and seafood, and the fusion of ethnic diversities, mainly, Mexicans, Europeans, and Asians/Pacific Islanders.
  • Californians have a health-conscious culture and food artisans, farmers' markets and organic farming are highly respected, valued and appreciated.
  • Signature dishes served in restaurants typically highlight: artichokes, avocado, dry jack cheese, goat cheese, roasted garlic ("stinking rose"), sourdough bread, sun dried tomatoes, and … whatever produce is in season, at the time.
  • California classic dishes – such as Cioppino (a fish stew), Oyster Cocktail, the California roll and California-Style Pizza – each have an interesting history about their origins.
