Be one step ahead of the game. The olive oil market has been saturated with a confusing array of olive oil grades, diversified into a whole gamut of flavored and infused oils, and mystified into a bewildering disparity of prices. If you are interested in incorporating olive oil into your business or personal life, it is very essential to be able to differentiate good from mediocre or even bad olive oil. This is especially true now that consumers are gradually demanding a greater degree of information about olive oil parameters of quality. The Tasting School of Valencia offers a 2-day (8 hours total) special seminar for learning all the facets of olive oil tasting. The seminar combines informative lectures with olive oil tasting sessions which allow you to experience first-hand all the major organoleptic issues related to understanding what constitutes high quality olive oil. We also include a hands-on gastronomy workshop on the relationship between the different food types and EVOOs. Courses are held at the Tasting School of Valencia (Valencia, Spain) – OR – special courses can be arranged at your place of business or another location near you. This may be of interest to you especially if you have several people you want to train in on olive oil quality and it is more economical to have our instructors come to you.
