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.)

Ever Thought About How Will You Survive?

Questions asked at a forum called “My Survival Forum”. These were my answers. Honing your survival skills? Perhaps this will give you something to think about.



  • I was watching a documentary on our public TV station and did notice that the women were wiping the plates with dirt. They were in the desert. I was thinking I would use leaves from a tree. But of course, if I'm in the desert then … (O.o) (???) So? Do you not think using leaves from a tree is a good way to clean dirty plates?



  • My late mother believed in cerasee.  It grew in the backyard of my childhood home. It seemed she believed you could take it for everything. She always brewed it like a tea and drank it. She got better. My theory is that it tastes so awful, whatever it was inside of her that was causing the ailment, ran away! I was sure she made it up because she didn't like to go to doctors and take us to doctors. Only to grow up and find that people from the islands have always used cerasee.

  • No, I have never used tea tree oil because I just recently learned about it. A visit to a website maintained by a “Dr. Axe” provides details on what this natural remedy can do. Tea Tree Oil : Uses and Benefits | draxe.com




  • Two pots for cooking meals is OK. But I'm all for one-pot meals. I especially like soups and stews because they are hearty and filling. Also, throwing a soup party on a cold winter's night is fun!!




  • Not a follower of Stephen Hawking. But I'll try to be objective about his predictions. Easy for him to say. He won't be here in a thousand years so nobody will yell at him for being wrong! The chances for the world to end in a thousand years, a thousand centuries, a thousand millennia or a thousand nanoseconds are all equally not predictable.
