A Celebration of Olive Oil
Olive oils are produced from many types of olives, in varying locations around the world. For a very enjoyable way to understand the different tastes and nuances of olive oil, here’s a suggestion:
In lieu of the popular hostess gift of wine, request guests to bring a bottle of unique olive oil. As an appetizer course, prepare boiled chunks of potatoes and drain. Put warm potatoes in a serving plate alongside individual bowls of these various olive oils. Place the bottle alongside each dipping bowl of oil. Of course, KosherEye suggests that a glass of wine is always appropriate at an olive oil tasting!
