Sensory Training with COOC Tasting Panel Member

The Olive Press staff had the pleasure of going through a sensory training on professional olive oil tasting with Nancy Ash, a tasting panel member of the California Olive Oil Council (COOC). Sniffing, sipping and slurping olive oil has never been so fun or educational! Come by The Olive Press for a truly professional tasting experience!

Just part of the set up for the training. Olive oil served in dark glass and coded to keep the oil disguised and to avoid bias.
