I know I'll probably get shouted down over this kind of post but do take it into consideration. Plan down time during the day. Cooking isn't indentured servitude any more and after almost 40 years in the business I can see that now. For example here is the daily routine in my catering kitchen Monday through Friday. Prep, salad guy in at 6am. 60 loaves of bread into the ovens, set up turn on dish tank, bring in an put away vegi delivery. Turn on any pre planed equipment...
Its common here in the Nordic countries. In Sweden under the brand names Bregott, Lätta, Flora, ect ect.

"They are making self driving cars and you think these are obstacles.

I am friends with a family here in Sweden that is from China and I can honestly say that every thing I have ever eaten at their home has tasted and looked nothing like any restaurant Chinese food I have eaten. I even got a WTF look and chuckle from them when I did general tso's chicken for my...
Forgot to mention, Grumpy Goats is from California. Another one to look for is Soler Romero, it is from the Jaen region of Spain, and is exported to the US. I've been to the Orchard and estate where they grow and produce.
I work a lot with olive oil ( import and distribution) strictly Spanish and organic. However there is a nice brand called Grumpy goats that took some awards in new york and is very nice. http://www.grumpygoatsfarm.com/index.html I have no financial interest in this brand at all. It's damn tasty.
