California Cuisine - History, Features and Fun Facts

California cuisine?  What's that?  Uh (???) … duh??  Food prepared by California chefs.

Wild guess!



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








  • 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.


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

California Cuisine - History, Features and Fun Facts

"What is California cuisine?" my boyfriend skeptically asked, as I told him I was going to write about it. In spite of having lived in California his whole life, he still wasn't sure how to describe the style of cooking in this region. I guess it's not that strange for many Californians to feel this way.

Since we're on the topic of pizza.  October is National Pizza Month in the USA.  So this post isn't dated October and the celebration is either a little early (too soon in the year) or a little late (missed it last year).   Eh!  I'm sure pizza celebrated all year round in Italy.  You've got two choices.  Pretend it's October OR pretend you're in Italy.  (Of course, if you are in Italy, no need to pretend.)

JAZZ : World Music, Made in the U.S.A.

I heart trivia and jazz  :)

DID YOU KNOW?  “In 1912, the first use of the word “jazz” was in print in California, but it was not a description of the music.”  So what was it describing and how did it get connected to this musical art form that people all around the world enjoy today?
