Olive Oil has been the most important culinary ingredient for Greeks since ancient times. Homer called it the “Liquid Gold” and Hippocrates the “Great Healer”.
It is considered the healthiest fat on earth, containing loads of antioxidants, fatty acids and vitamins. It is the core element of the Mediterranean Diet and accompanies our lives every day.
Is Mother Nature’s greatest gift!
Take advantage of your stay in Mykonos and learn everything about Olive Oil and Mediterranean Diet.
During our Mykonos Olive Oil Tasting Experience, you will learn how to smell and taste in order to discover the incredible flavors of fine Greek Extra Virgin Olive Oils. You will be able to participate in a sensory evaluation procedure (used by professionals to categorize olive oil), that will help you comprehend the true meaning of “extra virgin” as well as how to describe an olive oil correctly with terms such as “fruity”, “bitter” and/or “spicy”. You will discover how to recognize a defective olive oil from a good one, and how to correctly combine specific olive oils with different foods in order to transform a simple dish into something divine simply by using the right olive oil.
This workshop also aims to introduce you to the uniqueness of Mediterranean Diet and all the health & beauty benefits of Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO), which can transform your life forever. This is the perfect activity to experience and share with your family & friends.
