Women, Oil and Fantasy

An initiative dedicated to olive oil and women, the seasoning of life!

In the green heart of Italy, Umbria, where olive growing is the environment, landscape, and tourism, an event strongly desired by the President and founder of the National Association of Home Cooks, Maria Elena Curzio, will take place during the annual meeting. The aim is to raise awareness among the members/cooks and open new horizons with local industry operators.

The association’s intention, in line with its founding purpose, is to involve institutions and local businesses, enhance excellence, and offer their professionalism to promote the territory, its history, and traditions.

Women and oil, for an informed choice: The Tasting Course.

During the day, Angela Canale, Chief Panel Agronomist, will provide the association members with an important training session to learn how to taste extra virgin olive oil. The course will help in choosing the right oil and the best pairing to enhance different dishes.

In particular, some typical Umbrian oils will accompany the following menu:

  • Fresh pasta with wild herbs and cherry tomatoes paired with “Podere le Corone” oil
  • Marinated soup paired with “Terre di Grifonetto” oil
  • Polenta, bread, and focaccia paired with “Azienda Agraria Dante Sambuchi” oil

The Mediterranean Diet proclaimed as intangible cultural heritage of humanity

Several epidemiological studies have demonstrated a direct relationship between the Mediterranean diet and the prevention of cardiovascular diseases. Extra virgin olive oil, with all its health benefits, is indeed one of the cornerstones of this nutritional model.

This was recently affirmed by UNESCO, which in 2010 proclaimed the Mediterranean Diet as “intangible cultural heritage of humanity” in Nairobi. UNESCO emphasized that it is characterized “mainly by olive oil, cereals, fresh or dried fruits, and vegetables, a moderate amount of fish, dairy, and meat, and numerous seasonings and spices, all accompanied by wine or infusions.”
