Everything tastes better cooked outdoors!
By the nineteenth century, settlers arrived at the Rocky Mountains and moved beyond to the shores of the Pacific Ocean, and what they brought with them was truly American food. And yet myriad other influences have played into the mixfrom Spanish to Asian culinary traditions, from the Idaho potato and Montana lamb to the salmon and halibut of the Pacific states, from the pineapples of Hawaii to the apples of Washington State. In the late-twentieth century, some of the most exciting New American Cuisine was spawned in the 1980s along the West coast. All this and much, much more shines through in this vast region’s delectable and distinctive grilling traditions.
