Early in May I was in New York for the Olive Oil Times International Olive Oil Competition, which is the world’s largest competition with around 1000 EVOO submissions from around the globe.
Tasting and learning about the award winning EVOOs with panel leader Kostas Liris in NY.
As an olive oil sommelier through their certification program, I was lucky to get a spot as an apprentice during the competition. Here I was able to develop my skills and learn from some of the best olive oil tasters and judges in the world.
More details on this week to come, but first I hope you will listen to the podcast I did with Colin Keil and his olive oil podcast “It’s all about the olive, Olive!” here
Colin lives in Portugal where he has a small olive oil production and has recently launched a brand new podcast where olive oil is the main focus. I am happy to be one of his first guests and I know there are many more exciting guests and podcasts to come!
Remember you can also find the podcast on iTunes! Help us spread the word about the healthy, tasty and exciting olive oil world by tuning in and sharing with others:)
