About

My name is Diane S Lee.  I am a writer of 7th taste blog and a founder of 7th taste gourmet olive oils.  In the past 25 years, I have lived and traveled all around the world from Asia to Europe to Africa to Latin America to North America.  In my journeys, I loved getting exposed to the distinct food traditions of many different regions.  Once home in the San Francisco Bay Area, my curious nature lead me to continually experiment with new dishes and new flavors.  In late 2011, my 7th taste gourmet olive oil line, which infuses fresh California extra virgin olive oil with real spices (i.e. no artificial flavorings or mimic extracts), developed from my kitchen experimentation.  My everyday guiding cooking principle is to recreate unforgettable meals I had in my journeys around the world using fresh local ingredients.  I also love to make my favorite recipes taste better with 7th taste gourmet olive oils.  While further expanding my cooking repertoire with the discovery of new tastes,  I am thrilled to share great meal ideas with other adventurous home chefs.  I look forward to turning everyday meals into something extraordinary for both family & friends.  Bon Appétit!

    Congrats Diane,

    This is wonderful! I was salivating as I read your blog. It’s not just a recipe but the descriptions by a true food and wine enthusiast. I can’t wait to prepare the dishes.

    Hope that all is wonderful in your world. Please call me when you come to LA. I miss seeing you.

    정말 자랑스럽다 친구야,
    아침부터 너의 블로그를 찬찬히 읽어 보았어.
    아직 다 읽진 못했지만 이 곳에 너의 모든 것이 담겨있음을 느꼈다.
    일부러 한글로 올려보는데 네가 볼 수 있을지는 모르겠네.
    나만 볼 수 있는건 아닌지^^…
    지금처럼 늘 행복해라.
