We dropped off samples of Bondolio Nuovo Olio to the California Olive Oil Council for extra virgin certification. Each year Bondolio must be tested to insure the oil complies with COOC requirements of both a chemical analysis and a sensory evaluation. After a short visit with COOC Patty, Lisa and Ingred we popped into the Berkeley Pasta Shop for some take out. Malcolm was gawking at the rack of olive oils where he soon heard the voice of Linda, a senior Pasta Shop buyer ask “do you need some advice on olive oil?” Malcolm answered, “Nope, just very proud to see our Bondolio on your shelf of fine olive oils”and then introduced himself. Another senior buyer ‘Steve’ joined the conversation about Bondolio.
