We Olive, olive oil & gourmet foods retail and wine bar chain, announces the return of their annual Discover Cooking with California Olive Oil Recipe Contest. The competition awards the creator of the best original recipe featuring We Olive olive oil a food and wine getaway to California’s Central Coast.
The contest, which runs through July 14, 2014, was designed to educate consumers about the small olive growers of California and inspire home cooks to experiment with high quality extra virgin olive oils.
“Our mission at We Olive is to promote the artisan growers that are committed to producing high quality, true extra virgin olive oil. Most Americans are accustomed to grocery store olive oil, which is not typically fresh or recently harvested, often mislabeled as extra virgin and, many times, rancid,” explains We Olive Owner, Frank Mercurio.
We Olive features olive oils that are produced in California and certified extra virgin by the California Olive Oil Council (COOC) through an expert tasting panel and rigorous chemical analysis.Discover Cooking with California Olive Oil Recipe Contest,
