Western USA



Western USA

The American West is big country. It takes in the vast high plains, the rugged mountain states, the arid Southwest, and the verdant Pacific Northwest. The cuisine that has grown up here reflects this diversity. It can be as simple as a buffalo burger tossed on an open flame or as well-heeled as a wine dinner served in a fancy San Francisco restaurant. There’s spicy Southwest cuisine from Arizona and New Mexico and delicate Asian-inspired cuisine along the coastal stretches of California, Oregon, and Washington. And let’s not forget that here in the West the wild salmon makes its last stand. Yes, there’s much to the claim that the West is best.
