“Whether you’re a chef, an importer like myself, no matter what culinary profession you’re in, you should experience Gourmet Olive Exhibition & Delicacies. Sign up in advance for your olive oil and table olive sensory sessions, master food pairing classes, and cooking demonstrations. The exhibitor hall showcases the very best of Greece; producers are brought together in a unique way offering tastings of their specialty foods. I thoroughly enjoyed attending this spectacular three day Greek culinary event.
Thank you very much for welcoming me at the exhibition and for the great hospitality I had experienced there. It was very informative and I had a few good talks and exchanged a lot of contacts.
When you put your mind to work you succeed.
When you put your hart you have a warm welcome.
When you put your soul you achieve quality.
When you do all three then you have created a masterpiece!
At the 1st Gourmet Olive Exhibition I experienced all of the above. I can’t imagine what to expect from the second edition. I am sure that they will exceed themselves! I will simply join again again and find out for myself.
Congratulations on the excellent organization and the most positive energy we’ve experienced in years !!!
