In December Olive it! headed to Bristol 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 festive nibbles.
