Olive Oil and Balsamics Tasting Party at Antica Olive Oil in Los Alamitos
I had the good fortune to do this with the South Bay Cooking Meetup. It was a great way to spend the afternoon with friends and learn about something so pleasing to the palate. Besides sampling from their large variety of artisan olive oils and balsamics we will learn:
-The 5 Steps to be An Olive Oil Connoisseur
-A Brief Lesson in Olive Oil 101: Hemispheres, Regions, Varieties and profiles.
-And there will be a Tasting Contest (the winner receives a 200ml bottle of Olive Oil or Balsamic Vinegar)
Here are some of the flavors you will try: Here are some of the flavors you can try: roasted almond oil, blood orange olive oil, basil olive oil, chipotle olive oil, honey ginger balsamic, ripe peach balsamic, fig, espresso aged balsamic, wild blueberry, dark chocolate aged balsamic,...there are too many to mention here.
In addition to the class and tasting they will provide light appetizers, plus iced tea, or water. We may also bring our own wine and appetizers to share. Please note in remarks what you would like to bring. But it's not mandatory ~ it's a party!
