Emmy-award-win­ning day­time tele­vi­sion talk show host Ryan Seacrest has plans to make his own organic olive oil.

In a video pub­lished by the Associated Press in January, Seacrest said he had been learn­ing how to make it.

I’ll tell you my new hobby is I’m grow­ing olive trees and I’m going to make olive oil,” Seacrest said on his show, On Air With Ryan Seacrest, which did not respond to a request for com­ment by the time of pub­li­ca­tion.

I’m study­ing how to make organic olive oil… and it’s been a fas­ci­na­tion of mine,” Seacrest added. I find that there are so many dif­fer­ent health ben­e­fits to olive oil and I became obsessed with the trees. I’ve been read­ing books on how to farm the olives.”

Pablo Voitzuk, an olive oil con­sul­tant and edu­ca­tor, rec­om­mends that Seacrest learn from experts and take classes.

For olive oil itself, tast­ing is very impor­tant to under­stand qual­ity; oth­er­wise, you are at the expense of oth­er’s opin­ions and takes, which are often sub­jec­tive or dated,” Voitzuk sug­gested, adding that Seacrest should take sen­sory eval­u­a­tion classes.

Then, if he is really seri­ous about learn­ing, he should con­tact a con­sul­tant to dis­cuss milling, visit good pro­duc­ers, etc.,” Voitzuk said.

The award-win­ning miller also sug­gested that Seacrest con­sults with an agron­o­mist to care for his trees and read as widely on the sub­ject as pos­si­ble.
