Villa Jerada

villa-jerada

All the olive oils we use at Le Pichet and Café Presse are supplied by our friends at Seattle based Villa JeradaMehdi Boujrada, the brains behind Villa Jerada, imports organic olive oils from Morocco that happen to be produced by the Aquallal family, who are neighbors of Mahdi’s family there.  Sold under the Atlas Olive Oils label, these oils are preferred by some of the top chefs in France, Morocco and the U.S.  We love their Huile d’Olive Extra Verge Bio for everyday use and the very special “Les Terroires de Marrakech” Extra Virgin Olive Oil for finishing dishes.  This last oil, which is made exclusively from picholine olives, is featured in the nicoise-style Socca dish on Le Pichet’s current menu.

Summer menu 2017 begins at Café Presse

Salad of beefsteak and heirloom tomatoes, red onion, capers, parsley, roasted garlic vinaigrette and a hard cooked egg.
