What you will do

2 hour workshop

Evening

Olive Oil is originally from the Mediterranean area and now it’s produced and consumed in other areas around the world. It’s also included by The European Parliament in the list of food products most subjected to fraud. This is a great opportunity to learn about this key ingredient of the Mediterranean Diet.

In this 1.5 hour Olive Oil workshop, we will learn about:

  • How Olive Oil is produced and the different commercial categories: Extra virgin olive oil versus olive oil.
  • Its health benefits.
  • Its uses in the kitchen.
  • How to assess its quality by tasting.

For the tasting part of the workshop, we will be using award-winning Spanish extra virgin olive oil produced from the four main varieties: Arbequina, picual, hojiblanca and cornicabra.

By tasting the oils, you will appreciate the different intensity, nuances and aromas of the real extra virgin olive oil. The workshop includes:

  • From 4 to 6 Spanish extra virgin olive oils.
  • Olive Oil tasting cups.
  • Four ingredients to pair with the oils.
  • Spanish Tapas.

Did you know?

"Extra" is the highest grade for olive oil; the best you can buy. The virgin oil produced from mechanical pressing may be called "extra" if it has less than 0.8% free oleic acid, and if it exhibits superior taste, colour and aroma. Thus, the "extra" in extra virgin olive oil means "premium", or simply, "the best."
