      The Experience

      What makes an olive oil extra virgin? How are different olive oils used in professional kitchens? Local olive oil maker and expert taster Kathryn Tomajan will answer these questions and more with a private tasting and food pairing in the comfort of your home. Kathryn will share the history of olive oil production, purchasing and storage tips, and culinary applications of what is often described as California's liquid gold. She will guide you through proper tasting techniques with the best extra-virgin olive oils of California. You will explore olive varieties, flavor profiles, and pairings with local, seasonal foods that are both savory and sweet. Your guests will leave with a deeper appreciation for the complexity of various kinds of extra-virgin olive oil, an understanding of how to evaluate their quality, and how to use them in the kitchen.
