What you'll learn in this olive oil class:

At Eataly, we carry over one hundred different types of Italian extra virgin olive oil. What does it mean for olive oil to be classified as" Italian extra virgin"? And what accounts for the difference between all these different Italian extra virgin olive oils?

Join Marco Petrini, olive oil expert and President of Monini North America, one of the premier Italian olive oil brands, who will guide you on an olive oil tasting and answer your questions regarding this prized product. During this class we’ll drizzle 5 different Italian DOP olive oils on crostini made from Eataly’s housemade bread, discovering the history behind each product and the flavor nuance of each oil. After attending this class, you’ll never experience olive oil in the same way!
