“Let’s Talk About Olive Oil” is a seminar designed by Eftychios Androulakis and Chloe Dimitriadis, a collaboration between passionately engaged producers that explores all aspects of olive oil quality, especially those aspects often overlooked by mainstream international standards.
In this seminar, you will learn about how quality and taste are affected by olive variety, cultivation, harvest, production methods, and packaging. This is a discussion for those who love the world of quality food and are interested in learning about what to look for in olive oil, beyond just the “extra virgin” designation. The seminar starts at the olive grove with a discussion of organic cultivation. Entering the olive mill and bottling plant, you will see the innovations for producing quality organic olive oil. After the tour, a tasting session will provide greater insight into the details on how to distinguish good extra virgin olive oil.
The course ends with a “kerasma” (treat) of local wine and traditional Cretan appetizers, while all participants receive an analytical booklet on the course material.
