One of the Best Cuisines in North America: California’s Pizzas
One of the best cuisines in North America is California’s pizzas. This is because California’s pizzas are quite different from classic Italian pizzas. One could say that ‘California pizza’ is a modern concept and can be boiled down as something of a fussier, more ‘gourmet’ version of a New York-style pie, with toppings that are non-traditional such as artichokes, Mexican ‘carne asada’ or Thai spices – that pretty Californian way alright.
In any case, a good place for a rewarding casual slice of pizza is Oakland’s Pizziaolo, run by Chez Panisse, who quite became renowned for its deliciously good pizzas a few years ago with scene-stealing pies, then tried to deflect it by downplaying pizza and promoting other slow-cooking dishes. Simply put, it is real pizza and it is definitely a good eating. So if you are planning to take your vacation in North America, be sure to drop by in California and have a taste of their pizzas!
The Great Lakes in North America
There are many great places in the world and one of them is the shorelines of the Great Lakes in North America. This particular lake stretches a little over 10,000 (16,000 km), touching about eight states in North America and Ontario in Canada as well. The shorelines of these industrial great lakes make an excellent site for the transportation of trades and goods. It was basically the primary route used by early explorers of North America, and was clearly a major reason for the great industrial growth of the Midwest all through the 19th and 20th century.
Today, however, 200 million tons a year are transported using this particular waterway. As you may already know, major cargoes include iron ore (and other mined products), iron and steel, agriculture, and manufactured goods. In which case, cargo ships are generally aided by the system of canals and locks built on and between the lakes and rivers of the Great Lakes Basin.
