24 Jan Welcome to the Spanish Olive Oil School
Welcome to the Spanish Olive Oil School
We’re glad you’re following our blog whether out of curiosity or because you’re keen on learning more about extra virgin olive oil
The School was set up by myself (Mar) and my business partner (Elena) who despite coming into this sector from different pathways, both share a love of this extraordinary product: extra virgin olive oil (EVOO) and the Mediterranean Diet.
We launched the School and its services at Speciality Fine Food Fair at Kensington Olympia in London last September and we thank those EVOO producers who gifted us their oils for this event – we couldn’t have done it without them!
This blog provides us with a platform to share our knowledge and passion for EVOO with Londoners and the rest of the United Kingdom. Although we’re based in London we’re happy to deal with any UK-wide queries, please feel free to contact us wherever you are.
One of our main objectives is to educate the consumer and we use market information about the UK olive oil market from many sources including the Icex Institute which on its last report focused on the importance of educating the public about its attributes and benefits.
In our courses and tasting events we educate about EVOO in an informative and entertaining way with the purpose to enjoy both the attributes and culture behind it.
You can find some of the customer feed-back from previous tasting sessions below:
“Really interesting and a lovely relaxed friendly atmosphere. We would definitely recommend!” Lucy
“It was great to learn about how interesting olive oil can be. And I now know just what I buy. Thank you”. Laura
“A great way to spend an evening. Really informative and good to taste so much good and real EVOO. Thank you for a lovely evening” Ashley
We’ve already organised two events for early this year. If you wish to meet us and enjoy a different experience while learning , please book our next tasting session which will take place on 9th Feb 2018 in Clapham.
