Taste at the Seattle Art Museum is holding a cool event to promote California olive oil.
Fran Gage, San Francisco author of The New American Olive Oil: Profiles of Artisan Producers and 75 Recipes, will lead a seminar on olive oil-making techniques and discuss food and olive oil pairings.
Then her dishes will be featured in a 4-course meal prepared by exec Craig Hetherington and ace pastry chef Lucy Damkoehler.
Dinner will be paired with an olive oil cocktail created by Taste mixologist, Duncan Chase.
The whole thing happens Saturday, Oct 2, starting at 3pm, with dinner at 6pm. Seminar plus tasting is $45; dinner $85. To reserve, call 206-903-5291.
