Why Us

Start with quality basic ingredients and your kitchen will be a healthier, tastier place. That's what Theo Stephan, owner of Global Gardens, has been promoting since she began pressing her olives and making her natural fruit vinegars 16 years ago. 

But Global Gardens is about more than that. It's about sharing recipes, tips and knowledge about EVOO--they always beat out butter in flavor--and balsamic vinegars, an essential cooking ingredient that few people have experimented with. Vinegars are a great substitute for butter, too. Why add more fats to poultry and beef? Cook it in a natural fruit vinegar and you'll cutback on calories.   

Our EVOOs and natural-fruit vinegars have been cited for their quality and flavors in Bon Appetit, Los Angeles Times, Sunset Magazine, the Santa Barbara Independent, Wine Enthusiast and on Oprah's blog. Plus many more. We are currently building our press section. 

In 2011, Theo wrote the definitive book on vinegars and EVOOs. She continues to educate people at her Farm Stand in Los Olivos, CA. She would love to connect with you, too, and answer any questions you might have. Email her: theo@globalgardensonline.com
