A Tasting of Top California Olive Oils: Maia's Favorites
Wednesday, November 6, 2013, 7:00-9:00PM
$15 for 18 Reasons members; $20 for the general public

Please join us for a unique opportunity to taste some of California's best olive oils. Hosted by Maia Hirschbein, this workshop will address diverse aspects of California olive oil including:

History of California olive oil

Olive varietals and their aroma and flavor profiles

Palate development; a guided tasting of five olive oils

How to choose, store, and where to buy quality olive oils for your pantry

Maia Hirschbein holds a Masters in Food Culture and Communications at the University of Gastronomic Sciences in Piedmont, Italy. As part of her Masters research, Maia completed one of the most comprehensive studies of California olive oil, in which she traveled and met with producers throughout the state. She now works to grow consumer awareness of California oil by working with producers around the state, and teaching tasting workshops for both home cooks and for chefs. Maia first tasted freshly milled olive oil for the while working an olive harvest on a small farm in Tuscany, which inspired her obsession with olive oil back at home in California.
