Sneak Peek


Olive oil is everywhere, on your salad, on your steak and on your bread. So it us only natural to want to explore its origins, complex flavours and preparations further.

In this masterclass, with the guidance of a qualified Olive Oil taster, we will be talking about Olive Oil as a category of food, its long and often troubled history, its classification methods, varieties and preparation methods.

We will of-course be tasting over 10 different Olive Oils during this process, from faulty batches to internationally awarded oils.

You will leave knowing full well the difference between Arbequina, Picual, Hojiblanca and Cornicabra oils, and pair understand how to pair it correctly with food.

Most importantly, it is a fun experience discovering fruity aromas, challenging your taste buds and experiencing olive oil as never before.

We will provide the selection of olive oils for tasting on the day. It is very important that you do not wear makeup or perfume on the day. Please also try not to smoke before the workshop or drink coffee before the workshop too. This is important because studies have shown that it can significantly impact your tasting perception experience!
