Calling All Foodies, Chefs And Restaurateurs

The Olive Oil Festival 2013, Gorton Monastery 18 and 19 June

Published on June 10th 2013.


Calling All Foodies, Chefs And Restaurateurs

Olive oil is your cooking staple. Drizzled over salads, mixed with pasta, fried with pastes or even turned into ice-cream no kitchen is complete without it. And whether you are connoisseur or wouldn’t know your virgins from your extra virgins there is no denying that using olive oil is the healthy, nutritional and delicious way to cook.

This is undoubtedly a unique opportunity to transform your cooking.

Award-winning Maurizio Bocchi who calls himself an Agrichef (Agronomist by trade, chef by passion) calls it: “yellow gold of our tables” and we think he cannot be far wrong. But with so many different types and so much mis-information, as well as extreme levels of quality and price it can be hard to make the right decision.

That’s where the Olive Oil Festival comes in.

Find out how to get the best from olive oil from the people who know – including Maurizio Bocchi, and a host of Michelin-starred chefs: Nigel Haworth, Graziano Cominelli, Filippo La Mantia and Graham Campbell. This impressive list of chefs and Italian food experts will be on hand to explain how to get the best out of olive oil, its health benefits and usage and offer information on storage, buying and cost. As well as that there are stalls and, of course, lots of opportunities to taste (and purchase) a whole range of exclusive olive oil products.  Also at the festival: tasting workshops, cookery demonstrations and a whole host of activities, including top tips for best use of olive oil around the home and as part of a beauty regime. This is undoubtedly a unique opportunity to transform your cooking and your use of this naturally versatile oil.

Plus, tickets are free, click to get yours now. 

The event’s Gala Dinner, which promises to be a must-attend for Italian food aficionados and includes a five-course Italian tasting dinner prepared by award-winning head chef Maurizio Bocchi, and Michelin-starred chefs Filippo La Mantia, Graziano Cominelli, Nigel Haworth and Graham Campbell is a festival highlight. Tickets for this are £75 (including five courses with wines) and, set in the spectacular surroundings of Gorton Monastery with a music reception and exquisite Italian wines, it will certainly be an unforgettable experience.

We can guarantee you won’t look at that kitchen staple in the same way ever again.
