Pairing Food with Olive Oil – a workshop offered by Slow Food O’ahu
Presented by Angèl Foster of Island Olive Oil Company
Sunday, February 9, 5:30-7:30 pm.
If you’ve ever wondered which Extra Virgin Olive Oils go best with different dishes, this workshop is for you. Slow Food members will learn the basics of what to look for, taste for, and smell for when choosing olive oils for your own kitchen.
You will learn to distinguish between mild, medium, and robust olive oils, and how to pair each type with different foods, wines, and cooking styles. You will taste a variety of fresh olive oils paired with small bites so you can learn first-hand how to choose the perfect olive oils for your own cooking and entertaining.
Participants are encouraged to bring a small sample of the olive oil you currently use in your home kitchen. Together, we will do sensory analysis on these oils to see if they are mild, robust, well-balanced or defective. It should be a fun and interesting way to apply what you will learn.
You are invited to bring a bottle of wine to enjoy during the event with some tapas-style pupu which will be offered.
Island Olive Oil Company will offer a discount on selected products to Slow Food Members and all attendees.
Angèl and Brian Foster are the owners of Island Olive Oil Company. They are both Certified Olive Oil Sommeliers & Sensory Analysts. They recently returned from a trip to the Mediterranean exploring new sources of distinctive olive oils for their shop.
