About the Brand
Michael Chiarello, chef, author, and creator of Consorzio
Consorzio products were originally created by renowned Napa Valley chef and author Michael Chiarello of the PBS TV cooking series "Season by Season." The fresh, bold flavors of Michael's Napa Valley home provide the perfect inspiration for his creativity.
It was around 1994 that he "began to see a need for what I call convenience without compromise. People were growing tired of food prepared by chemists and were interested in more wholesome, healthful eating. But because they had less and less time for cooking, they needed solutions that would give them big flavor without a lot of effort," said Michael.
Michael first developed flavored olive oils and sold them out of the back door of his restaurant. It wasn't long before local specialty stores became aware of these products and encouraged Michael and his partners to make them widely available.
So, Michael joined forces with a few partners to form Consorzio. (The word "consorzio" means "gathering" in Italian. It is a place where cooks and farmers gather to buy and sell fresh fruits and vegetables.) Their goal was to make all-natural, bold-flavored products that make cooking convenient. Today, Consorzio is the largest producer of flavored olive oil in the U.S., and the line also includes dressings, marinades, and barbecue sauces.
