Description

On Thursday, October 19th at 6:30pm, join us for the immensely popular olive oil and vinegar tasting at Essex Olive & Spice House inside Essex Street Market!

Owner Saad Bourkadi originally hails from Fez, Morocco, where his family has been growing olives for 4 generations. Today his brother produces over 100,000 liters of olive oil per day -- much of which is distributed only within Morrocan borders.

Now living in New York, Saad is importing his family's oil for the first time -- and also infusing it with a wide variety of enticing flavors, including blood orange, white truffle, and habanero pepper. He also imports infused balsamic vinegars, with brazen flavorings like chocolate, peach, and vanilla fig.

During this tasting, you'll whet your appetite with 12 different infused olive oils and 6 infused vinegars. You'll also compare 3 extra virgin olive oils from Morocco, Italy, and Spain and learn how to differentiate between them. All tasters will receive spice samples to take home from Saad's shop, too!

Join us for this special tasting event, and gain a new appreciation for this everyday cooking staple!
