The Forest Feast x PRMRY Extra Virgin Olive Oil
We are beyond thrilled to partner up with fellow Northern Californian resident Erin Gleeson to bring you this extra virgin in collaboration with Forest Feast.
For years, Forest Feast fans have loved Erin Gleeson’s effortless California-style vegetarian cooking, made in her beautiful cabin in the woods. We are launching this limited-release extra virgin in collaboration with the launch of Gleeson's latest cookbook, The Forest Feast Road Trip, which showcases 100 vegetarian recipes, all inspired by her family’s journey by car through a stunningly geographically diverse setting. (You can shop the cookbook and olive oil set here.)
This Forest Feast collaboration EVOO was milled in November 2021 and is made from Coratina olives grown in Woodland, California. It's robust in intensity, and has warm cinnamon and herbaceous notes, and pronounced bitterness and pepperiness. The label was custom illustrated and designed by Erin Gleeson.
WHAT IS EXTRA VIRGIN?
Exceptional extra virgin olive oil (EVOO) is a flawless, fresh juice, packed with phenols — those antioxidants that fight disease and promote good health. EVOO is fruity, flavorful, bitter and spicy, and should be consumed within about four months of opening.
We source our olives from various locations in California, always prioritizing quality above all else. This means that from year to year we may change olive varieties and where we source our olives. For our 2020 harvest, we sourced our ENHANCE olives from a single estate in California’s Central Valley. Meanwhile, our TRANSFORM olives came from two different California estates, one in the Bay Area and the other in Central Valley.
PRMRY's bottles are sealed with a wooden closure, and made of glass coated with an organic, eco-friendly spray that helps to block UV rays. This means your oil is protected from light and the harmful oxidation it causes. That said, it's important to keep your oil away from heat, so avoid storing it in sunlight or near a stove or other heat source.
Love this olive oil. The container is nice looking and reusable. I plan on getting the plate that goes with it too.
