The Taste of California

The Taste of California

With Chef Neal Fraser


Today on Life & Thyme, we join Chef Neal Fraser of Los Angeles’ Redbird as he journeys to Northern California in search of a quality, domestically produced olive oil for his restaurants.

From harvest to bottle, California Olive Ranch works quickly to preserve and highlight the delicate flavors of the olives it farms, with a profound respect for the fruit that is evidenced in the quality of their finished product. In California Olive Ranch, Fraser found a company that shares not only his reverence for California produce, but also for innovation. And the versatility of California Olive Ranch’s extra virgin olive oil allows chefs like himself–as well as those at home–to create global flavors utilizing a local product they can rely on every day.
