I am often asked to present at Culinary Arts and Food classes in high schools. My course title: EVOO & U is interactive, fun and educational. The interactive part was the “Taste Test” where students tasted two quality extra virgin olive oils and one major supermarket brand. Students were able to discern the difference and highlight the positive attributes and tasting notes of true EVOO. Read the Pressing Times article; see if you can answer the opening quiz and then conduct your own taste test. BTW, students were fascinated by the numerous celebrities that use EVOO, including Katy Perry, Mariah Carey and Selena Gomez….and for those, not in high school, the most famous celebrity, well-known for her use of olive oil is Sophia Loren.
