Slow Tasting

Thanks to everyone who came out to the Slow Food olive oil tasting last night. It was a lot of fun and it was very interesting to taste the diversity of extra virgin olive oils from around the world. I was proud that our Amelia Oil really held its own.

If you would like to organise an olive oil tasting with friends, we would be happy to bring our oil and talk to you about our experience and share our knowledge of this wonderful product.

This morning I had news from Rebecca, who is currently in Europe. She visited a number of olive mills in Spain and we may have a line on some Spanish oil. Stay tuned for more information.

Pick up

Still haven't received your 2007 Amelia Oil? Give me a call at 604-925-3028 to arrange pick up or delivery. We are working on it and would like to get your fresh olive oil to you as soon as possible.

Also a reminder that I will be conducting an olive oil tasting tomorrow evening at 7pm at 1650 W.7th Ave for Slow Food Vancouver. I will be telling stories of olive passion and terroir. This is going to be a bit of an anti-tasting:) However, we will be trying olive oils high and low from Italy to Spain. For more information, drop me an e-mail or give me a call at the number above. Come out and join the Slow Food movement.

The unforeseen

Our shipment of oil has arrived in Vancouver; however, it has unfortunately run into an unforeseen delay--there is a CN picket line and trucks can not get in or out of the delivery area! Thank you for your patience. We hope to get our hands on this wonderful olive oil by the end of the week and we will start distribution immediately. Stay tuned for updates.

Tasting notes

We had a wonderful day yesterday talking to people about olive oil down at Barbara-Jo's Books to Cooks. What a wonderful place to spend an afternoon!

If you missed out on yesterday's tasting, I will be doing another for Slow Food Vancouver on Feb. 27th. For more information, please drop me an e-mail.
