  • Lucero "Winter Crush"

    November 27, 2011


    Lucero Olive Oil is proud to announce the 1st Annual “Winter Crush” taking place at Lucero Olive Oil’s mill in Corning, California.

    The event will be held on Saturday, December 10, 2011 from 10:00am-4:00pm. Attendees will experience making olive oil first hand while savoring the aromas of the citrus crush. As a producer, Lucero Olive Oil’s citrus crush oils have won numerous awards and seeing this process is a unique experience you won’t want to miss. Fresh citrus is added to the olives before they are crushed producing a zesty Meyer lemon or mandarin orange flavor in the extra virgin olive oil.

    After you finish watching the citrus crushed olive oil being made, see how it’s used by top local chefs.  Cooking demonstrations will be available at 11:30am, 1:00pm, and 3:00pm by head chefs from CR Gibbs of Redding and Farwood Bar and Grill in Orland; using Lucero Meyer Lemon, Mandarin and Olio Nuovo olive oils.

    Additional activities will be going on throughout the event.  A market place featuring local vendors will be open all day showcasing products grown and produced right here in Northern California.  Carol Firenze, author of the “Passionate Olive” will be on hand to talk olive oil and sign copies of her book.  Live music will be provided by Johnny and the Bootleggers and food vendors will be selling an array of dishes.
