The Olive Press By The Olive Press - Makers of Award Winning Fresh California Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Tasting Notes and Food Pairings:
The Olive Press Koroneiki oil has zesty fruitiness with hints of green banana, grass, apple and just a bit of pepper.
Use our Koroneiki in dishes with bold ripe vegetables, such as heirloom tomato salad or corn and avocado salsa; it will complement the delicate flavors of the produce while accentuating them with a peppery hue. Add it to pasta sauces that are on the lighter side, such as Primavera, Pomodoro, or a delicate marinara. It pairs well with other green, grassy, and olive flavors, such as those found in pea puree, arugula salad. tapenade, and fresh pesto.
