A Sensory Exploration of California’s Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Learn about the art and craft of extra virgin olive oil with experts from the California Olive Oil Council (COOC) and taste some of SHED’s favorite oils in this workshop all about olive oil!

Extra virgin olive oil is the highest grade of olive oil. With the guidance of olive oil producer and COOC member Nancy Lilly, participants in this workshop will learn the sensory tasting techniques used by expert judges to distinguish between oils and determine flavor and aroma notes that range from nutty to peppery to fruity.

The workshop also includes an introduction to olive varietals, a discussion of California’s olive oil production industry, and tips on choosing and storing quality olive oils for your pantry. We’ll end with a tasting of small bites prepared by the SHED kitchen using California extra virgin olive oil.

Please plan to join us for a unique opportunity to taste some of California’s best olive oils. All workshop participants will receive 10% in SHED’s retail store the day of the event, perfect for stocking up on olive oils from our pantry!
