Olive oil masterclass
During the event there will be an interesting olive oil masterclass, presented by Mr. Gregor Christiaans.
|Gregor Christiaans is a certified olive oil taster, author of the book Lekker vet – everything about olive oil and host of the only Dutch podcast about olive oil and the Mediterranean diet: Lekker vet. He is also a guest lecturer at the Hogere Hotelschool The Hague, where he gives lectures and workshops on olive oil and he writes articles for the food platform foodlog.nl.
He also owns the catering wholesaler in Mediterranean products Olijfbedrijf and the consumer website www.olijfolieproef.nl and imports olive oils from all over the world.
His passion for olive oil and his desire to share this as much as possible with consumers, resulted last year in the establishment of his non-profit organization Stichting Olijfolie Nederland, which resulted in the very first edition of the Amsterdam International Olive Oil Competition (AIOOC). It will be held in May this year and more than 70 producers from Spain to Croatia and from France to South Africa have already registered.
Last year, for his merits in promoting olive oil in general, he received the Giorgo Phellas award from the prestigious Ercole Olivario.

In the Dutch food sector, she can be seen regularly at trade fairs and events, where she gives presentations about Spanish ham, while she cuts the ham by hand in a professional manner.
