Amazing time at this tasting. Very well organized and prepared. Our host Yiorgos (sp?) is very knowledgeable about olive oil, taught us how to properly taste it, and answered all our questions kindly. Experience is divided into 2 parts: a 'pure' tasting of the different oils, then pairing them with different foods to see how the taste changes. Took place in a beautiful private space right next to the restaurant meeting point. Highly recommend!!
