Chef's Pick Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil from Katz
2022 Harvest – Organically Grown Olives Milled & Blended in California
Katz Organic Chef's Pick Extra Virgin Olive Oil boasts green aromas of freshly cut grass, fresh fennel fronds and a robust intensity with pleasant bitter notes of winter chicories and green olive. A gentle, building heat rounds out the finish.
How to use
This well-balanced, buttery extra virgin olive oil is great for finishing, cooking and baking. Pour over cooked cannellini beans, grilled vegetables and over hearty soups like Italian ribolitta. We also love using Katz Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil instead of butter for silky vegetable mashes and purées like potato, cauliflower and parsnip. Bakers, try it in our recipe for Orange-Scented Extra Virgin Olive Oil Cake, one of our bakery's most popular cakes.
About the producer
Albert and Kim Katz, the founders of Katz and Company, first met in college at UC Berkeley. Albert was studying California politics, and in particular the history and the use of water for irrigation in our state - the 'seed' of his interest in small-scale farming. Kim was studying art and design. They moved to Napa Valley just when the olive oil production in Northern California was about to blossom. Albert became one of the founding members of the California Olive Oil Council in 1993 during this time. Together, their passion for good food and good olive oil as continued to grow, making them one of our favorite local California producers.
