Summer is a season of simple pleasures. Toes in the sand, the sun on your face, garden fresh fruit and vegetables, and a good book in a shady spot.

In keeping with the season, we’ve pulled together an easy but elegant menu perfect for a summer dinner party or an easy lunch with friends.

To quote the author of Grow What You Love —and creator of our first recipe — Emily Murphy: “The simplest recipes are often the most jaw-dropping, especially when made with the freshest ingredients.”

California is known as the Golden State for many reasons — the seemingly endless sunshine, the fields of yellow wildflowers that appear every spring, the history of gold mining in the state, and of course, the golden sunsets.

The state itself is as diverse a place as its official nickname. California is the most populated US state and home to 3 of the country’s largest cities as well as 36 National Natural Landmarks, 2 UNESCO World Heritage Sites, 280 state parks, and 149 federally designated wilderness areas.

This vast state has everything you could want for an epic nature getaway, from rugged mountain ranges to sandy beaches plus plenty of opportunities for wildlife spotting.

Deciding where to go first might just be the hardest part of planning a visit to California, so to help you out we’ve made a fun quiz to give you a personalized travel recommendation.
