Overview

This luscious cookbook — full of glorious recipes for making the most of extra-virgin olive oil — is a feast for both the eyes and the palate. In 1991 Nan McEvoy planted 1,000 olive tree seedlings on her ranch in Northern California. Today, 18,000 trees later, McEvoy Ranch is highly respected for its fine extra-virgin olive oil. Also producing lavender and honey, and maintaining an extensive kitchen garden, the ranch — entirely organic — has evolved into a virtual paradise, replete with heirloom vegetables, fruits, and olive groves as far as the eye can see. With this wealth of ingredients, ranch chef Gerald Gass has created more than 70 recipes combining extra-virgin olive oil with the best the garden has to offer. Comforting soups of winter squash with honey and sage; hearty pasta dishes with olives and tomatoes; savory pork tenderloin flavored with red cherries and spices; crunchy lemon biscotti — these olive oil-infused recipes are simple to prepare and draw on the fruits of nature as their main ingredients. Stunning photographs of the olive groves, gardens, and recipes make The Olive Harvest Cookbook a lovely gift for anyone who has ever dreamed of living off the land in their own little piece of Eden.
