Olive Oil Tasting in London

Olive Oil Tasting workshop in London

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 (no worries we will help you to discover the real extra virgin olive oil).

This is a great opportunity to learn about this key ingredient of the Mediterranean Diet.
