Celebrate the Olive at Sunday's Frog Hollow Harvest Party in Brentwood
Frog Hollow Farm has more than preserves, peaches, pears, and cherries to offer. In the past few years, the Brentwood farm has been pressing extra-virgin oil from its own olives. Taste the results at Sunday's harvest party at the East Bay farm, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at 11435 Brentwood Boulevard (at TK), Brentwood. Tickets are $30-$65, and include lunch (with wine from Brentwood's Bloomfield Vineyards), as well as the chance to win an orchard tour with Frog Hollow founder, farmer Al Courchesne. You could also score face time with both legendary purveyor Darrell Corti of Corti Brothers, and KCBS food and wine editor Narsai David. And if you feel like loading up on olives, you can even do a little U-pick. Advance tickets required.
