I have created Caliterranean® as a brand name to share healthy, flavorful and satisfying recipes, food products and a mode of living, California style! Ever since I was a little girl growing up in Dayton, Ohio, I wanted to live, work and play in California; in 1996 that dream came true. I moved permanently to northern Santa Barbara county to found Global Gardens®, now southern California’s most-awarded certified organic extra-virgin olive oil, first cold pressing, along with homemade fruit balsamics, organic mustards, proprietary spice blends, snacks and olive oil beauty products.
P.S. I believe it's an improvement on the Mediterranean lifestyle and eating habits (fresh produce! olive oils!). I have added in those practices that make California unique: meditation, yoga, and aromatherapy. Love, inner peace, and positivity are a driving life force. Recycling. Organic. Loving the Earth.
