Savantes New York Leads up to North American Extra Virgin Olive Oil Tasters Championship
Participants in the recent Savantes Programme in New York (25-27 February) have had a taste of the pressure expected at the inaugural North American Extra Virgin Olive Oil Tasters Championship. The Championship will be held in Rosemont near Chicago on 26th August.
The Savantes programme in Manhattan New York took the usual course of familiarising the tasters with the different styles and flavours of extra virgin olive oils from producing regions worldwide. Some attention is given to classification and defects but the general approach is that if olive oil users learn what tastes good, they will discard oils that have defects.
Spend Wisely on Olive Oil
The Spend Wisely on Olive Oil Conference is the first olive oil conference in North America focused on what matters most to olive oil users – Value!
The conference will provide simply articulated information on the benefits and uses of all classifications of olive oil as compared to other edible oils and fats.
Participants will receive tools and inspiration allowing them to promote increased usage and consumption of olive oil and an understanding of how to choose the right olive oil for various uses.
Insights from experts related to health, cooking and trade will be delivered - always with a focus on practical applications.
