TASTE | Wonder Valley Olive Oil
Almost a year ago exactly, we ventured into the home of olive oil expert Alison Altomari, to get a grip on the basics of the kitchen staple. We mentioned then that she and her husband Jay Carroll were working on their own oil and just weeks ago, it arrived. I bought a bottle of Wonder Valley Extra Virgin Olive Oil ($33) immediately and have been enjoying it immensely ever since. It's grassy and fruity and buttery, and sometimes I just open up the bottle and inhale when I walk through the kitchen. It's that good. The Wonder Valley inaugural pressing yielded a first run of 600 bottles harvested in November of 2014 from hand-picked young olives. I'm already panicking about my bottle coming to an end, but at least I'll have that beautiful bottle to save and repurpose.
