    Recipe Roundup: Creating, Testing, Writing and More

    What goes into creating, testing recipes and then writing, editing and even getting published?

    James Beard award winner Carolyn Jung and recipe developer extraordinaire Rosemary Mark are set to converse for our benefit. They will share their experiences of creating and testing, writing and editing recipes as well as getting published.

    Carolyn will be able to tell us about her latest book, East Bay Cooks and how it came about. Signed books  will be available for purchase at the program.

    Carolyn Jung is an award-winning food and wine writer, the recipient of a James Beard Award and author of San Francisco Chef’s Table and East Bay Cooks . She has judged a bevy of food contests, including the biggie of them all, the Pillsbury Bake-Off. She was the food writer/editor for the San Jose Mercury News for 11 years. Her work has appeared in many respected publications including the San Francisco Chronicle, EatingWellWine Spectator, Edible Marin & Wine Country, and Edible Silicon Valley. She created FoodGal.com, a food and wine blog and is currently a freelance food writer.

    Rosemary Mark specializes in practical recipes with unique flavor for home cooks and the foodservice industry. Her nutrition-related client projects have included: increasing omega 3-fatty acid consumption through recipe development for the California Walnut Board; and designing child-centric frozen vegetable dishes for a supermarket chain. She has produced recipes for new flavors by Dreyers and Haagan-Dazs® and for pantry staples like Sun-Maid dried fruit and Del Monte vegetables. Other clients have included Driscoll’s, Safeway, The Ginger People, and the Idaho Potato Commission. Her food blog Get Cooking Simply shares healthy recipes and cooking tips. http://getcookingsimply.com/

    • Corto Olive Oil Company
    • 28

    Visit Corto Olive Oil Company during the heart of their fall harvest season for an intimate look into the world of premium fresh olive oil produced in California. Your tour will include visiting the vineyard-style olive groves, touring their state-of-the-art mill to see the art and craft of production and learning all about the freshness of olive oil in a guided tasting. 

    This is an exclusive adventure, as Corto is not open to the public.

    As a bonus, lunch will follow, hosted by Corto at Pietro's Trattoria (approx 10 min drive from mill, 317 E Kettleman Ln, Lodi, CA 95240)

    What is not to love about California olive oil?

    10201 Live Oak Road
    Stockton, CA 95212

    Some important notes:

    -Dress code: long pants, long sleeves, closed toed shoes with low or no heel. Jewelry is also not allowed inside the mill, so guests are asked to remove any watches, bracelets, rings, necklaces and earrings which may be left in a secured space during the tour.

    -Since Corto doesn't typically host tours, no olive oil will be for sale on site but you can purchase online at (https://corto-olive.com/) or find at selected local SF stores (Berkeley Bowl and Market Hall Foods). 

    -In order to protect proprietary information concerning the olive oil business disclosed on the tour, all guests are asked to complete a standard non-disclosure/confidentiality agreement upon arrival.

    The opportunity to see the mill in full function is weather dependent. If there is significant rain (which can affect flavor and quality), the mill may pause its production, but the tour will still be on.
