Learn how to Taste Olive Oil with a Spanish Farmer

1 hour
Group size
Up to 15 people

Set off for the rolling hills of Andalusia to find out all about Spanish olive oil.

Olive groves are, without a doubt, the defining feature of the landscape in Andalusia, Spain. Join Isaac here at his family-run “Hacienda,” a traditional farm and mill, to find out everything there is to know about Spanish olive oil. Follow along with Isaac as he walks among the beautiful trees where he cultivates olives. He’ll explain the different aromas these olives can have and give an overview of the harvesting process that’s been perfected over many years in this region. Learn how extraction occurs at the mill and how olive oil is carefully preserved. Then, step into the olive oil tasting room, where Isaac will give an overview of the different kinds of olive oil (and why extra virgin olive oil is pure perfection). He’ll lead an olive oil tasting—join in from home if you have any on hand!—that’ll give you a deeper understanding of the nuanced flavors it contains. Isaac’s helpful tips about how to use Spanish olive oil will help you improve your home cooking, and he’ll answer any and all questions you have about his favorite fruit.
