Have you ever had people over to do some wine tasting? You can cover the bottles to get people's impressions or simply offer a variety to see which ones are the favorite among the group. Olive Oil, like wine has many varieties, comes from many countries, some are blends, some are monocultivars, some robust, others mild and buttery. Sharing it with friends makes great conversations and ultimately can help to create a wonderful dinner.
Why not host an olive oil tasting for your next gathering.
Extra Virgin Olive Oils have such a diverse range of flavors, from mild to robust, that they’re the perfect assortment to compare at a tasting party.
Here’s how to host an olive oil tasting party:
You can have everyone compare notes after tasting each olive oil or when you’ve completed the entire tasting. In addition, you can dip the bread in the oils and note the differences in flavor. Discuss what you would like to sauté, bake or drizzle with the various oils.
