The Olive it! roadshow took place in Brighton on 30th June and 1st July!
We offered a selection of lucky winners the chance to bag places on an exclusive culinary masterclass with celebrated Spanish chef Omar Allibhoy. Hailed by Gordon Ramsay as the “Antonio Banderas of cooking”, he hosted an exclusive hands-on cookery tuition session teaching a variety of tapas inspired recipes using everyone’s favourite Mediterranean ingredient… table olives! Learning how to use the mouth-watering flavours of olives to add a twist to everyday dishes at infamous Brighton Cookery School, in the heart of Brighton.
The bespoke classes saw guests cooking up a variety of exciting dishes before sitting down to enjoy sampling a mouth-watering feast accompanied by carefully selected wines. To find out about our next roadshow visit us on Twitter @OliveIt_UK, Facebook @OliveItUK or Pinterest @OliveItUK.
Olive cooking course with Omar Allibhoy
In December Olive it! headed to Edinburgh and hosted a once in a lifetime olive cooking course with celebrated Spanish chef, Omar Allibhoy.
The evening started with a welcoming glass of wine before Omar demonstrated how to make an unusual olive-based dessert: candied pitted olives and cherries in sweet sherry wine. The second dish showcased was a true winter warmer: queen olive-stuffed meatballs with tomato and olive sauce. Finally, the group had a go at making a coarse paté of mixed olives, manchego cheese and pistachios – perfect for pre-spring nibbles.
