Description

Transform bitter unpalatable olives into gourmet delights! This hands-on workshop will show you a variety of different ways Italians use to preserve green olives straight from the tree. Everybody will take olives home to continue the process and maybe even some ready to eat.

Suitable for all levels

Presented by Lucy Marasco

Growing up on a farm, fresh produce was always abundant and available to Lucy and her family. So preserving was second nature and part of everyday life. From picking buckets of peas in the paddocks, to endlessly trying the warm cooking jams on the stove top, Lucy’s enthusiasm hasn’t lessened.

She continues to enjoy preserving and trying different and unusual recipes, as well as the traditional classics, such as the annual passata/spaghetti sauce and salami making days with the family. Lucy is now enjoying the next chapter with her three children, and getting them involved in the tradition of a love of food, cooking and preserving.

Lucy was very generous with her knowledge about preserving olives. I was pleasantly surprised by how easy preserving olives can be. The tastings of different olives preserved a few different ways was especially useful (and delicious!), as I now know which technique will give me the flavours that I like. I came away from the class confident that I can preserve my own olives and home, and also with a few jars full and ready to store.

The course gives you all you need to start preserving your own olives at home. Lucy was very informative and provided an array of tasting samples to allow us to see which type of preserving we wanted to do. I would highly recommend this course and it’s great value.
