Umbria’s Liquid Gold: Olive Oil – 2nd part – November 7th, 2020
In the second and final part of our olive oil adventure, join me for a virtual visit to our olive groves for the harvest, then on to the mill for the pressing. We’ll celebrate Umbria’s “green gold” at local festivals and end our olive oil explorations with easy-to-replicate recipes highlighting olio di oliva. Extra-vergine, of course!
A symbol of peace, wisdom, prosperity, fertility, and victory, the olive tree has been praised, sung, and immortalized in the art and mythology of the Mediterranean world, while defining its landscape.
