About the Instructor
John Herbstrtitt moved to California in 2004 from the Chicago area with a desire to see something new and get out of the cold. After finishing a degree in Rhetoric he packed up and moved to Paris for a year where he discovered the beauty of simple and delicious food. Bringing a newfound purpose back to the Bay he tooled around the food scene in the East Bay for a while working in the kitchen at Cafe Rouge and Chez Panisse before finding his true calling in retail. He was recently brought on as the wine specialist at the new Birite on Divisadero in San Francisco where you can find him stocking shelves, waxing poetic over white Burgundy and slinging CA olive oil on the side. He has been a member of the COOC taste panel since October 2011.

Presented by the California Olive Oil Council, a non-profit trade and marketing association whose purpose is to promote the production and consumption of California extra virgin olive oil. Through our Seal Certification program, we help everyone from home cooks to restaurants find guaranteed extra virgin olive oil for their kitchen. Visit cooc.com for more information.
