What is Olive Oil Tasting all about?
Olive oil tasting is a sensory evaluation process that involves assessing the flavour, aroma, and texture of different types of olive oil.
You will sample an oil from Greece, Spain, Italy, Tunisia or California and if the timing is right you may get to taste an Olio Nuovo from Laconiko with the highest polyphenol count we carry. 
By evaluating these characteristics, you can gain a better understanding of the quality and flavour profile of the olive oil you are tasting, and determine which oils are the most suitable for your cooking or culinary needs.
We are very proud to be the only supplier in Ontario of Laconiko Koroneiki EVOO. We have also picked up some of their award winning Aged Balsamic Vinegars.
