Trey Foshee, George's at the Cove and Galaxy Taco, La Jolla, CA
“I prefer to use the freshest EVOO possible for my cuisine – not one that has been on a ship for months before it arrives. I also prefer using California grown products and California Olive Ranch provides a consistently fresh, delicious, high quality product that I can always count on. I have personally visited California Olive Ranch’s entire growing, harvesting, and milling operation and so know first-hand how they maintain the freshness of the product at every step along the way. I don’t know of any foreign producer able to provide COR’s level of quality and traceability – right down to the acre. It’s really quite impressive."

"My favorite is California Olive Ranch's Arbequina Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Arbequina’s fruitiness is the perfect olive oil to finish off a roasted pear and endive salad, or drizzle to enhance a seasonal gazpacho.”
Alice Medrich, James Beard award-winning chef and cookbook author, Berkeley, CA
"Because of California Olive Ranch, I've stopped buying inexpensive imported olive oils in favor of California oil.

It's affordable, fresh, and delicious and I use it regularly to experiment with new desserts.”
Marie Simmons, cookbook author and food writer, James Beard award-winning chef, Richmond, CA
"California Olive Ranch oils are my go-to oils for all my cooking needs. I am drawn to the soft fruit and sweet buttery notes of the Everyday California extra virgin olive oil and the slightly more fruity Arbequina. For bigger flavored foods, I reach for Miller’s Blend, a more pungent oil.”
