The Cuisine of California is a cuisine marked by an interest in " fusion "— integrating disparate cooking styles and ingredients— and which, influenced by the state's health-conscious tradition, tends to be freshly prepared.
Her cuisine emphasizes the freshest ingredients which are in season and are procured solely from local farms.
Besides the cooking style, the cuisine is characterized by an abundance of fruits and vegetables as the state is one of the major agricultural centers of the United States.
