The Florence School of Olive Oil

  • OLIO - The Florence School of Olive Oil

    This is the first cooking school in Italy that gives classes on olive oil, solo or combined with cooking. In fact this is absolutely new and the only school in Italy which offers this experience. It's not as simple as olive oil being poured on bread but these are technical classes that explain all the criteria officially accepted to identify extra virgin olive oil all over the world.

    OLIO is run by professionals who will teach you an authentic Italian cuisine. Silvia and Barbara the founders of the school have great passion and dedication and are extremely knowledgeable about food, wine and the area as well. During the classes you will not only learn fantastic recipes but also some interesting facts about the ingredients with a pinch of history and culture.  The classes are run in a relaxed atmosphere and dedicated to passionate home cooks as well as to professionals who want to expand their skills and knowledge. Silvia, who runs the classes, speaks English, German, Spanish and Greek.
