Frantoi has teamed up with Sicilian food experience specialist Strazzanti for a drop-in tasting of Sicilian Extra Virgin Olive Oil and Sicilian food. This zoom based session will take place on Tuesday 15th of December at 7 pm (UK time) hosted by Frantoi founder Elizabeth and Strazzanti founder Emilia.
Elizabeth and Emilia will take you on a wonderful journey through Sicily’s flavours with Strazzanti’s pestos and sauces and Frantoi’s selection of Sicilian olive oils. You will learn how to taste Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO), which flavours to expect from Sicilian olive oils, why freshly milled EVOO is a super food, how to cook and pair EVOO with food. You will also learn about the dominant flavours of Sicilian food, how Strazzanti brings these to you home and how best to use their wonderful sauces.
You will be charmed, have fun, and learn tonnes of new things about EVOO, Sicily and it’s flavours.
Your delivery will include:
6 x 500 ml bottles of freshly milled Sicilian Extra Virgin Olive Oil from Frantoi Cutrera
Each olive oil will be a monocultivar, indigenous to Sicily, freshly pressed from the 2020 harvest and full of its own character. We will taste each oil individually to determine the different characteristics and then put them alongside the wonderful stuzzichini from Strazzanti. This gives you a full journey around the flavours of Sicily, it’s a unique chance to taste these oils all together.
