As a native Californian, born and raised in the San Joaquin Valley and now living in Southern California, I remember hearing how similiar California and the Mediterranean are, in terms of the climate yielding such wonderful produce.
Now that you live in Sonoma, near the birthplace of "California Cuisine," do you think that California has certain qualities that remind you of the Mediterranean, culinary and/or otherwise? If so, to what extent? If not, why not?
