Chef Daniel Norton stopped by Melina's booth at the Fancy Food Show 2013 in San Francisco and immediately connected with our passion. We quickly formed a friendship and began working with our wonderful oils and vinegars. He constructs each recipe with an ultimate flavor in mind. Daniel says, "From the people to the olives, Melina's Gourmet Food is the most beautiful, hands down."

We are delighted he chose to share his wonderful recipes with us.

You are welcome to enjoy Daniel's creations with Melina's products.
