What you will do
3 hour class
You'll start getting familiarised with quality extra virgin olive oil by tasting more than 4 varieties from diverse counties from Spain and defective oils to compare.
The teachers combine theory with the support of PowerPoint presentations and practical exercise : tasting, tasting, tasting to learn the technique used by professional olive oil tasters as it's done in panel tests and international competitions.
They'll do food pairing and you can choose which best options suit your palates : arbequinas with chocolate, picual with orange fruits, cornicabra with yogurt or perhaps hojiblanca variety with tomato?
The concepts we go through are the following ones:
- What is Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
- The Olive Tree and the olive: cultivation, harvest, production, storage, labelling.
- Commercial categories.
- How to assess the quality by tasting the oil: positive and negative attributes.
- Healthy benefits of the Extra Virgin Olive Oil as part of the Mediterranean Diet.
- EVOO tasting and food pairing.
Blind tastings to test your new knowledge and challenge your tasting buds!
Discover the magic of nature contained in a bottle of premium extra virgin olive oils and the work of the farmers behind it in an entertaining way guided by a Certified Olive Oil Expert from Jaen, capital of the olive oil world.
