Join our exclusive Foods and Wines from Spain educational workshop exploring some of the renowned and distinctive ingredients of Spanish cuisine. Spain is the top producer of olive oil in the world, producing an average of 1 million tons of olive oil each year. In this seminar, certified olive oil taster Angelo Tramonti will discuss the history of cultivating olives and production of premium oil in Spain, giving examples of how olives are indispensable to classic Spanish cooking. He will discuss tasting techniques and lead a tasting of oils made from distinct varietals such as Arbequina, Hojiblanca and Picual. This expert-led tasting and discussion will teach you how this essential ingredient is made and how it enriches Spanish cuisine.
Then, from Jamón Ibérico to Jamón Serrano, explore the varieties of this traditional Spanish delicacy. Learn the different classifications and how they are produced with expert Chris McDonald, formerly of Cava Restaurant. Chef McDonald will discuss the complete production of Jamón from how the pigs are raised all the way through to the curing process, and demonstrate hand-slicing of Jamón and guide participants through a tasting of different varieties.
After the tasting, enjoy a reception of a selection of tapas and Spanish cheeses.
