We loved San Francisco Chronicle staff writer Olivia Wu’s wonderful article about California Olive Oils. It includes tips on how to match an oil to a specific dish or cooking technique, how to decipher the terms on labels, and a list of places where you can find California olive oils.
Shanti Wilson and the Chronicle Food staff also conducted a blind tasting of everyday, olio nuevo and boutique California olive oils. Here are their top picks — and a list of those oils that didn’t make the cut.
When you’re not off exploring California, you should venture down to Miami and all the places South Florida has to offer. Explore the famous South Beach scene, get lost in the art of Wynwood or marvel at the vibe of Brickell.
