加州草莓节
地方性遗产

您曾吃过草莓比萨吗?假如您在五月来到加州的草莓之都:奥克斯纳德 (Oxnard),您也许就有机会尝到了!

奥克斯纳德位于加州的南部,而这个地区的人看待草莓的态度极为认真。身处一连两天的加州草莓祭上,您有机会试吃到各式各样的草莓制食物。除了常规的做法,如:草莓蛋糕、草莓果酱、草莓馅饼及外裹巧克力酱的草莓,甚至还有草莓比萨呢!这个可当作餐后甜点的草莓比萨是在一个像比萨的甜面包上,铺上草莓、酸奶油、奶油起士及生奶油后烘烤而成;另外一道佳肴是沾有糖粉的草莓串,而如草莓奶昔这样的饮品则可随着这道佳肴一起下肚。

草莓是奥克斯纳德的大生意。奥克斯纳德境内美丽的6,600亩草莓地的年收入可逹一亿美元。另外共有24家公司生产近乎1600万盘的莓果并外销至北美洲、德国及日本。这场盛会吸引了85,000多名游客前来参加,活动内容则包括了三场音乐表演、335场手工艺展、巡回音乐家、小丑、艺术家、脸部彩绘、竞赛及专为孩童而设的「草莓园」 (Strawberryland),内有玩偶、魔术师、音乐家及宠物动物园。

Have you ever tried a strawberry pizza? If you went to Oxnard, the "Strawberry Capital of California," in May, you could!

Oxnard is in Southern California and this part of the state takes its strawberries very seriously. At the two-day California Strawberry Festival you can sample strawberries prepared in all sorts of ways. In addition to traditional treats such as strawberry shortcake, strawberry jam, strawberry tarts and strawberries dipped in chocolate, there is strawberry pizza! This dessert pizza is topped with strawberries, sour cream, cream cheese and whipped cream on a sweet bread baked like a pizza. Strawberry kabobs dipped in powdered sugar are another delicacy. And drinks such as a strawberry smoothie can wash it all down.

Strawberries are big business in Oxnard. The annual strawberry revenues are $100 million from Oxnard's bountiful 6,600 berry acres. Twenty-four companies harvest and cool nearly 16 million trays of berries, which are shipped throughout North America as well as to Germany and Japan. The festival, which attracts more than 85,000 visitors, features three stages with musical entertainment, 335 arts and crafts exhibits, strolling musicians, clowns, artists, face-painting, contests, and a "Strawberryland" for children with puppets, magicians, musicians, and a petting zoo.
