What Have We Been Up To Lately

Sensory Certification Course January 2018 – UC Davis Olive Center Davis California

This January 2018, I participated in the Sensory Evaluation Certificate Course at UC Davis Olive Center in California; where Stephen also received his education and certification June of 2015.  We are committed to continuing our education and to be your trusted source for the freshest and healthiest extra virgin olive oil in the world.

What is Sensory Evaluation of Extra Virgin Olive Oil: The sensory evaluation of olive oil is done with the sense of smell, taste and feel. It is a scientific discipline used to evoke, measure, analyze and interpret reactions.  An Extra Virgin Olive Oil has ZERO defects in nose notes (smell) and flavor notes (taste and feel). The course also focused in on cooking with olive oil, YES, you can cook with high quality extra virgin olive oil.

This course enlightened me to what a fresh and living extra virgin olive oil smells and tastes like. It is a lot of work milling, picking and crushing these olives – time and environment matters greatly in the results.

UC Davis Olive Center this month had experts from around the world in nutrition and preventative medicine that discussed the role of olive oil health benefits and the Mediterranean Lifestyle with foods. We will be having an educational tasting event with the latest news and research regarding Olive Oil in February. Stay tuned to our Facebook, Instagram and Blog.
