  • Private: Olive Oil tasting (outdoor)
    An outdoor olive oil tasting experience, a walk, and a discussion in the midst of a 2000-year-old monumental olive grove. We explore the heritage and art of olive trees and olive oil in Greek life over the centuries, considering their significance in the mythology, history, culture, and cuisine of ancient and modern Cretan civilization. Our stroll through the peaceful olive grove resembles a walk in the holy Gethsemane Garden, with its ancient olive trees. Both groves are full of the myths, flavors, and aromas of olive oil that have endured from Minoan times to the present. The beauty of the landscape makes our experience a lasting memory. We discuss olive oil quality, the olive harvest, olive oil production, and olive oil’s health benefits. We learn about the Cretan Diet and find out how extra virgin olive oil became the most important component of a new, healthy lifestyle. Learning how to taste olive oil according to the official tasting method, we taste four different high quality extra virgin olive oils, noticing the variations in aroma and flavor among the four varieties. Our tasting table is right under the olive trees. In the last part of the tasting session, an olive oil-food pairing activity, we observe the way different types of olive oil go well with certain foods. We savor the amazing result after adding an excellent extra virgin olive oil that transforms a dish’s flavors. Hints about how to store, select, bake, and cook – even fry -- with olive oil will be shared.
