Pacific Northwest Cool Climate Extra Virgin Olive Oil Conference

Did you know that we are making extra virgin olive oil in Oregon???  The Oregon Olive Mill is hosting a 2-day conference focused on high quality extra virgin olive oil!  Day one (Saturday April 16th) is agronomy focused, and open for sign-up, but the most appropriate day for this group would be Sunday April 27th, where we will discuss olive oil labeling, usage, and engage in a didactic olive oil tasting.  Featured panelists include Jim Dixon (, Chef Vitaly Paley, and food writer/cookbook author Nancy Harmon Jenkins.  Sunday evening following the conference, Chef Vitaly Paley will be preparing an olive oil-focused dinner to be enjoyed at the Oregon Olive Mill.  You can purchase tickets for Saturday ($60), Sunday ($60), and Sunday Dinner ($50) or a full Weekend Pass for $150.  Please contact me directly for more details, and to sign up for the event!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
