Have you ever wanted to know more about olive oil or wondered how Zingerman’s selects the distinctive olive oils we carry? Then this JUST FOR KIDS tasting is for you! You will learn to taste olive oil like an expert as we taste our way through olive oils from across the globe. We’ll learn about different types of olives, their unique flavors, how you would use these oils in your cooking at home, and why we call olive oil “liquid gold”. After this class, you will for sure be dubbed a Zingerman’s foodie!
What we’ll be tasting:
• Try 2 different tasting olive oils – Professional Food Explorer, Marshall, will teach us how to taste ‘em like an expert. There will be slurping involved!
• Ortiz tuna and bagel chips (packed in oil, made with oil).
• Pesto on pasta (very popular sauce with oil).
• Marzipan olives packed in olive oil (these are sweet!)
• Olive oil with honey (with bread to dip).
We think kids ages 4-14 would most enjoy this tasting. Parents are welcome to attend at no charge and observe on the sidelines. All participants will receive a 20% off coupon to use after the tasting to eat and/or shop at the Deli.
