Californian Cooking

California is known for some of its tasty and tantalizing dishes that have been created here and cannot be found anywhere else in the world. Some of these are created by world famous chefs, while others have been created by local restaurant owners and private chefs.

One of the most popular foods that California is famous for re-inventing is pizza. They have many unique combinations that have originated here. One of these is the gourmet pear, walnut, and gorgonzola pizza. It only takes around 10 minutes to cook and about the same amount of time to prepare. All that is required is to sauté\’ some onions and then add some pears to the sauté\’ in the final two minutes. You can then add pepper and vinegar and stir until the onions are glazed. Divide the mixture over the dough and then add blue cheese and walnuts and you have yourself a classic California dish.

California has come to be known as a place where people are more health conscious, leading to a wide array of various fruit and vegetable recipes. These include things like spinach and strawberry salad, raspberry yogurt shakes, fresh tomato and corn salad, strawberry rhubarb crumble, baked vegetarian chimichangas, raspberry sauce, vegetarian lasagna, and Indian style green beans.

There are also many uniquely prepared poultry dishes and other dishes using all types of meat, including a wide array of burgers that are specially prepared using ingredients that only Californians could consider combining with chop meat.
