Taggiasca, minucciola, bianchera, quercetana… these may names be unfamiliar to many. They’re varieties of olive oil mae in coastal regions, a window onto the more than 500 varieties of olive cultivatedd in Italy which characeterize the landscape of the country.

In Coast to Coast spirit we’ll explore some of the different varieties found along the coasts of Italy, all of which benefit from the salty breeze of the sea. Extra virgin olive oils produced from these olives are testament to the enormous wealth of sensory profiles we can find in olive oil; an extreme level of diversity which we explore through a tasting of oils featured in the Slow Food Guide to extra virgin olive oil 2023 paired with beans, fish and vegetables from Slow Food Presidia. 

A free copy of the book (in Italian) for every participant comes with the ticket.

Tickets for this event may be bought online until May 31. Any remaining tickets may be bought at the Event Reception in Genoa.
