Meet the Maker: Oro di Milas Olive Oil

Tuesday, June 18, 2024 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm


This event will take place IN PERSON at Zingerman’s Delicatessen!

We’ve traveled the globe looking for handmade, artisan foods and we’ve found another great one for you: Oro di Milas Extra Virgin Olive Oil from Turkey!  After years of living in the United States, the dynamic duo of Emine and Mark Colin, left a thriving endodontic practice and returned to Emine’s country of birth. Together the couple bought a property with withering olive trees and coaxed them back to life. Over a decade later they are producing a top-notch olive oil that we have fallen head over heels for. We are really excited that Emine and Mark are going to join us IN PERSON for a tasting featuring their estate oil. We’ll talk all things oil – the process of growing, pressing, and bottling – and for sure we will taste their oil, with a couple of simple dishes designed to show off the complex flavors of this stellar oil!

In a recent email newsletter, Ari detailed all the ways he enjoys this oil:

The oil is terrific on pretty much everything from salad to steak. It’s a perfect addition to any freshly cooked fish or seafood—add it when the fish is already cooked and on the plate en route to the table. As per Turkish tradition, it’s especially great with vegetables, and also, I’ll add, with lamb! I like it on toast with some great varietal honey—the Appalachian monofloral honeys I wrote about last month would be marvelous. Great on fruit as well. Gently sauté some heirloom apples or pears in the oil, sprinkle with a pinch of sea salt (and if you like things sweeter, add a small bit of sugar and/or some high-quality raisins). When you’re ready to serve, drizzle on a little more of the Oro di Milas. This simple dish would be delicious for dessert atop some Creamery gelato, as a palate cleanser, served as a sweet side dish with a savory main course, or added to a grilled cheese.

Please note: this menu will have gluten and dairy. Adjustments can be made for both.
