Description 

Country of Origin: California, USA

McEvoy Ranch's award-winning estate grown and produced unfiltered Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil is a highly flavorful and aromatic extra virgin olive oil, produced in Northern California from the finest Italian varieties. Certified Extra Virgin by California Olive Oil Council (COOC) and certified Organic by California Certified Organic Farmers (CCOF).

Originally inspired by the olive oils found in the Italian countryside, McEvoy Ranch’s extra virgin olive oil in the Tuscan style with its characteristically rich, slightly peppery flavor is the result of six Tuscan varietals: Frantoio, Leccino, Pendolino, Maurino, Leccio del Corno and Coratina.

It is this blending of olive varieties which adds the award-winning depth of flavor to the finished oil. Frantoio, which constitutes 75 percent of the blend, gives the oil its fruity notes, while Leccino, 20 percent of the mix, gives it a peppery finish. The remaining varieties are added to give the oil softness and balance.

It evokes flavors of fresh cut grass and green tomato, with hints of artichoke; a tantalizing touch of bitterness, and a mildly peppery finish.

Notes about the McEvoy extraction method: The McEvoy Ranch olive mill uses exclusively Rapanelli equipment imported from Italy and is the only mill of its kind in the United States. The freshly harvested olives are crushed by stone and blade mills, and the oil extracted via centrifugation, Sinolea percolation, and gravity separation. The result is an extra virgin olive oil of the utmost highest quality - well balanced, smoothly textured and of unparalleled flavor.

Cold Sliced Beef Sirloin with Herb Sauce
This is a great, light dinner for hot days. Best of all, it can be made a day ahead of time and refrigerated. If you refrigerate the sauce, be sure to return it to room temperature before serving. This is excellent when served with cooked white beans, drizzled with extra virgin olive oil and sprinkled with fresh cracked pepper.

The beef can be served rolled up and fastened with a toothpick, then drizzled with the sauce - or it can be served in overlapping layers which are drizzled with sauce. Try it with a crusty bread, chilled wine and tossed greens. If you have a bit of fresh basil left from the recipe, use it to garnish your platter of sirloin.

Black Beluga Lentil Salad with Goat Cheese
Black beluga lentils are aptly named. Not only do the tiny jet-black lentils resemble beluga caviar in appearance, they also possess a warm, nutty flavor that is not unlike that of their namesake.

Black beluga lentils, like French Green Lentils (lentilles du Puys), differ from other "garden variety" lentils in several ways. Black Beluga lentils retain their lens-like shape and firm pleasant texture when cooked, making them a good choice for salads. They're much smaller, too - only about 1/8th-inch or so in diameter. Black beluga lentils cook very quickly, requiring only about 15 - 20 minutes to cook to a pleasant 'al dente' consistency.

The natural deep ebony color of Black beluga lentils fades to an attractive rich nut-brown hue during the cooking process. Their mild, but distinctive "legume" flavor melds beautifully with vinaigrettes and marinades, and accommodates itself well to soups and stews too.

Marinated Green Olives with Duck Prosciutto
What is more Spanish than the olive? This delightfully simple appetizer is very reminiscent of Spanish-style tapas, small bite-sized portions of savory foods, usually eaten along with a glass of wine. If you purchase good quality olives which have already been marinated, half the work is already done. If you've been extra ambitious, you can use your own Cured Green Olives. But no matter how you prepare the olives, the end result will be wonderful.

Grilled Salmon with Rhubarb-Hibiscus Sauce
The unique flavor of rhubarb has made it an old-time favorite ingredient in pies & desserts, but it's also fantastic in tangy sauces to accompany savory dishes.

In this recipe, the delightfully tart acidity of rhubarb provides a pleasant counterpoint to the richness of grilled wild salmon, but the sauce would be equally good with roast pork or duck.

Couscous Salad with Spinach, Artichokes & Olives
Israeli couscous has a mellow, neutral flavor that blends wonderfully with many different ingredients. Israeli Couscous is made from hard wheat and water, just like regular pasta. But here's the difference: instead of being dried, Israeli Couscous is toasted in an open flame oven, giving it a rich, nutty flavor. The resulting small round pasta readily absorbs flavors while remaining pleasantly firm in texture. Sauces & seasonings easily cling to the surface of each pearl-shaped piece. Israeli couscous is sodium free, saturated fat free and 100% Natural.

In this salad it adds texture and a background to the spinach, olives, lemon, and artichoke. This also makes an exotic light luncheon, especially if served with crusty bread and fresh fruit. This salad serves six, and is reprinted with permission from "Charlie Trotter Cooks at Home" published by Ten Speed Press.
