Our organic, multi-gold-medal-winning oil from our ‘Up Valley’ olive grove in California’s Suisun Valley is an outstanding California olive oil and great value. Situated in the warmest microclimate in the Valley, it was the ideal setting to plant the Tuscan varietals that make up the heart of this oil each year. Chef’s Pick remains the choice for many of the finest restaurant chefs…who often help us harvest this oil each year…thus the name!
Our KATZ Organic Chef’s Pick EVO was named “One Of The Five Best Oils In The World” by Details Magazine…a humbling honor indeed!
ABOUT THE TASTE
This year's KATZ Organic Chef's Pick Extra Virgin Olive Oil returns to its roots with some bold flavors and rustic charm. The nose catches grassiness, with hints of artichoke and fennel, followed by a very warm, rich taste that hints of sweet spices. This year’s oil is a mouthful of balanced flavors with a pleasant but firm pungency (the pepper in the back of your throat that announces it polyphenolic freshness).
The oil has a very low 0.14 free acidity reading and a peroxide value of 4.9, well below the international threshold and a sign of the oil’s very high quality and structure. Bottled unfiltered, Chef’s Pick enhances a wide array of foods, but its bold flavor will shine in seasonal pasta dishes, casseroles and stews with meats such as lamb, beef or game, and in dressings for leafy greens such as spinach and arugula. This is the perfect condiment oil for the professional and home cook.
ABOUT THE OIL
The flagship of our KATZ offerings and a seven-time gold medal winner at the prestigious L.A. International Olive Oil Competition, KATZ Chef’s Pick is blended in small lots from oils harvested from olives grown in our certified organic Up Valley Grove in the Suisun Valley (on the eastern border of Napa). This historic agriculturally rich valley with loamy and sandy soils is an ideal growing region for the Italian varietals of olives planted there. Our goal each year remains the same…produce an excellent and high-quality oil that reflects the generous flavors, balance and harmony that come from good growing and harvesting practices.
