COOC August Monday Night Education Series
Monday, August 12, 2013 from 5:30 PM to 7:00 PM (PDT)
The California Olive Oil Council is excited to open our doors to the public for a new monthly education series! These seminars will be led by COOC Taste Panel members on varying topics of olive oil, and will always include a brief intro to tasting olive oil. The class size is small and will always end with a light food pairing and tasting.
On Monday, August 12th:
Join local food professionals John Herbstritt of Bi-Rite Market and Christian Reynoso of Toast Wine Bar and Lounge as they pair California Extra Virgin Olive Oils with artisanal cheeses. They'll focus on how to professionally taste olive oils and cheese separately and then how to bring the two together. They will also show you how to create three easy to make and unique appetizers using olive oil and cheese that you can serve to guests. Come with stomachs empty and minds open and prepare to be surprised at how delicious olive oil and cheese can be together.
Please arrive a few minutes early and bring a notebook if you would like.
