Olive Oil Tasting and tapas
Olive Oil is originally from the Mediterranean area and now it’s produced and consumed in other areas around the world. It’s also included by The European Parliament in the list of food products most subjected to fraud.
This is a great opportunity to learn about this key ingredient of the Mediterranean Diet.
