The first annual New York International Olive Oil Competition will bring the world’s finest extra virgin olive oils to the World’s Greatest City.
The two-day event open to the public will feature presentations on extra virgin olive oil appreciation, and culinary demonstrations by some of New York’s most celebrated chefs. An olive oil sensory evaluation course will be offered for industry professionals and enthusiasts.
An international panel of experts will judge the competition which is expected to draw hundreds of entries from every olive oil producing region. The winners will be recognized by the international press and share the prestige of taking the prize at the only extra virgin olive oil competition held at the “Crossroads of the World.”
Several of New York’s most important gourmet retailers have signed on to feature the winning oils in specially-designed displays, adding to the commercial benefits for the selected winners.
The event is co-produced by Jane Street Media, publisher of the Olive Oil Times which has become the leading source of olive oil information for consumers and industry professionals.
The New York International Olive Oil Competition will take place in April, 2013.
