Product Comparison - US and EU Extra Virgin Olive Oil Vortragssprache Englisch Simultanübersetzung Deutsch

Olive oil in California goes back to the 18th Century and the establishment of the Franciscan missions. After a long period of decline in favor of table olive production in the 20th Century, the 1990’s saw a renaissance of olive oil production. Olive oil from California represents between 4 and 5% of US consumption, but its impact in the market is important. It has helped to drive the growth of the premium sector. There is also olive oil being produced in other states, including Texas, Georgia, Florida, Oregon and Arizona. Although the majority of production is super-high-density, California has a robust artisanal olive oil industry that produces oil from many different cultivars and in many styles. The only variety considered uniquely American is Mission, descended from the trees planted by the Franciscans, but none-the-less California has developed some distinctive olive oils. This presentation is an opportunity to taste domestic US olive oils next to oils made in Europe. Since the use of olive oil is as an ingredient in dishes, it is valuable to discuss the use of extra virgin olive oil in the eclectic and ethnically diverse cuisine that characterizes the modern American - and global - kitchen.
