It’s here! Not only does this issue feature my photo on the cover, but it completes a huge community project here in the East Bay of the SF Bay Area. Our topic was olive oil.

There is so much good content to enjoy from stories about California olive growers, olio nuovo, millers, chefs, bloggers, famous cake authors, upcycle baking mixes, and more. We even managed to weave in locally grown seasonal produce like persimmons and pomegranates.

Here is my cover photo of Alice Medrich’s delicious olive oil cake. It was shot on her beautiful marble table.

Check out this issue here, with so many great photos and recipes at Edible East Bay.

Here is a still-life project to inspire winter’s finest ingredients.

I loved learning about the varietals of extra virgin olive oil that are dated by the year. A favorite is Picual by Seka Hills. I love the green tomato leaf flavor.

The best surprise of all was getting to see olio nuovo in real life. Look at its beautiful chartreuse color. This was shot at Seka Hills.
