Northwest Indiana Times
August 7, 2005
The 49er's came to California looking for the shiny-hard kind of gold-colored gold. Today's adventurers can discover edible gold -- in all kinds of colors -- on SavorCalifornia.com. The bubbly amber of hard apple cider, the creamy white of aged goat cheese, the ruby red of cranberry-orange chutney, the tawny yellow of star thistle honey, the deep purple of Zinfandel vinegar, the shiny black of wild rice, the spicy green of Serrano chiles, the rosy saffron of blood orange olive oil, the luscious pink of smoked salmon, and the rich chocolate of hazelnut toffee.
SavorCalifornia.com is the online showcase for the amazingly diverse gourmet specialty food and beverage producers in the Golden State. Travelers can use the Web site as a treasure map to discover the state's culinary wealth -- what's good, who's making it and where to find it.
