Olive Oil Tasting Workshop

Over the last decade, Israeli olive oil has enjoyed a revival and takes pride of place in many kitchens.

How can we know if the oil we buy is good quality? What does “best extra-virgin” olive oil mean ?How can we preserve that quality once we’ve opened the bottle? What’s the difference between the different species of olives? Is it better to use sharp, bitter oil or choose a more refined taste?

In our fun workshop surrounded by smells and tastes, you’ll activate our sensory abilities and learn how to taste olive oil through smell and taste.

And maybe you’ll develop a personal preference for a specific species!

The workshop is expertly facilitated by Yael Ofer, food and tourism writer, who is also a tasting competition judge and a certified olive oil taster serving on professional olive-tasting panels.
