Villa Gabriella recently attended the North American Olive Oil Association conference. This year’s theme was Spend Wisely on Olive Oil & focused on what matters most to today’s global olive oil users – Value!
The conference was educational, informative, interesting & delicious!
Industry experts & health professionals discussed the many physical, nutritional & health benefits of using olive oil compared to animal fats or other oils.
Cooking demonstrations were led by Chef Seamus Mullen who shared several best practices in baking, finishing, frying & roasting with olive oil in Mediterranean, Asian, North American & even Latin cuisines!
Testing our skills, we tasted & evaluated 8+ olive oil & their related profiles from Africa, Australia, Europe & the Americas
We also enjoyed olive oil enhanced dishes comparing & contrasting the aromas, colors & tastes of several olive oil varietals.
Stay tuned for more useful information, best practices & health benefits of olive oil in the kitchen & your daily life!
