Have an Olive Day With Chef José Andrés

Philadelphia hosted a delectable event on May 15th, “Have an Olive Day,” featuring the prestigious Spanish chef José Andrés,

as the campaign’s brand ambassador. 

Chef Andrés has been twice named by TIME Magazine as one of its 100 Most Influential people.  In its final year, this initiative is promoted by Olives from Spain, with the financial support of the European Union.

95 percent of the pimento-stuffed olives consumed in the United States come from Spain

As part of the Olives From Spain “Have an Olive Day” campaign, Andrés last week turned the The Versailles Residences roof deck and private resident space, at 16th and Locust Street in Center City into a delicious olive field with dozens of varieties, including Hojiblanca, Queen and Manzanilla, as part of his ambassadorship introducing Spanish olives to the United States.

“Have an Olive Day” campaign invited guests and journalists to know more about their varieties, versatility and benefits. The promotional program developed by the European Union and the Spanish olives sector, is the leading producer and exporter of table olives in America.

Spain is the world leader in production and export of table olives, representing 21 percent of world production and 30 percent of world exports. The United States imports more than 155 million pounds of European olives every year.


Chef Martinez helped guests taste and discover olives, a basic ingredient in the Mediterranean diet.

Popular at the party was the Olives from Spain Philly cheese-steak

According to Hospitality Design Magazine: Maidenberg ‘s favorite architect is Frank Gehry because he “I’ve followed him since the ’80s. He has changed the way of creating. There is great documentary by Sydney Pollack called Sketches of Frank Gehry. A genius films another genius. You can see Gehry creating a building with pieces of carton and scissors like a very clever and sensitive kid would do. Then, the process gets more complicated.” (source)
