Central Coast Olive Oil

Central Coast Olive Growers

I remember the first time I tasted California olive oil. A number of years ago, a friend ran a farmer's market in La Jolla and asked me to come by to check it out.

I was delighted by all the fresh produce brought in from the rural areas of San Diego County and, in this frenzy of excitement, stopped at a local olive oil producer's stand.

"Try some on a piece of nice bread," a distinguished Italian gentleman said to me. It was his oil.

From the first bite, I was hooked. The slightly tingling flavor, the taste of pepper on the back of my tongue, the knowledge of this being recently pressed from local trees was a true awakening.

If, like me, you are among those who stalk the isles for California olive oil, searching for the perfect complement to pasta or bread or zucchini or artichokes or anything else deserving of this gift from the heavens, you may find what you're looking for on our olive oil pages.

Everyone out there is telling you to eat local foods. I'm telling you to eat great food.

When it comes to olive oil, you can listen to all these voices.

Excellent extra virgin olive oil should be balanced in three flavor dimensions: olive fruitiness, bitterness, and pungency/pepperiness.
