Learn how olives are farmed at the Vlastos Farma in the Amari Valley on the Island of Crete with the same ancient trees planted in the 12th century. The Vlastos family grows the olives on Crete and sells the olive oil in Casper. We will cook with olive oil in ways inspired by Greek cooking techniques using low heat derived from the stick fires used in village cooking hearths. By the conclusion of class, everyone will understand the health benefits of olive oil and be able to shop for their own favorite to use for cooking.
