Now that my days in California are numbered, I’m trying to take advantage of all the sunshine and produce this place has to offer. I think one of the things I’ll miss most is my access to fresh strawberries and avocados. No matter what time of the year it is, you can always get both in San Francisco!

So when Crate and Barrel asked me to create a recipe representative of California cuisine, I immediately thought of avocados — specifically, avocado toast! I know it’s considered #basic these days, but we all still love it. Or at least, I do. Unapologetically and unabashedly.

So check out Crate and Barrel’s blog for my avocado toast recipes!
