Evoo for every day: Extra virgin olive oil used to be that condiment that cooks dispensed by the drop. Sauté with it? Are you kidding? Too pricey for that. But California olive growers have turned that notion on its head. They have a new way of planting and cultivating olive trees that brings the cost way down. Now we can use California extra virgin olive oil freely; reap the health benefits (it’s rich in antioxidants); enjoy its bold, zesty flavor; and make the tastiest focaccia ever.
Which wine? California rosé. You know you love it. Make it your welcome pour all summer long. Lean and bracing, it’s the ideal appetizer wine for a bowl of olives or warm herbed focaccia.
