“I love olives and use them in so many dishes to make a good thing even better,” said chef Guy Turland. “I’m excited to be part of the #DreamOlive initiative because it combines my passion for inspiring people in the kitchen while benefiting a good cause.”

For the millions of people navigating cooking and eating at home in this new normal, Pearls® Olives and a handful of influential chefs are here to help. Launching today, National Olive Day, the new #DreamOlive initiative features chefs dreaming up recipes and ideas using olives – considered by many a perfect pantry item given their snackability, versatility, flavor, health attributes and ability to easily enhance just about any dish.

In turn, olive fans, home cooks and those who want to support a good cause are encouraged to share their olive recipes and ideas by posting a photo, video or comment using #DreamOlive across social media platforms. For every idea shared, Pearls will donate a meal to Feeding America.

Among the participating #DreamOlive chefs is Guy Turland, TV Host, owner of California's Bondi Harvest and self-professed olive lover. “I love olives and use them in so many dishes to make a good thing even better,” said Turland. “I’m excited to be part of the #DreamOlive initiative because it combines my passion for inspiring people in the kitchen while benefiting a good cause.”

The #DreamOlive initiative lives on the feedfeed, a network connecting people who love to cook. Visit thefeedfeed.com/olives for #DreamOlive recipes and details, including how to receive Pearls olive samples, Visa gift cards and other rewards.
