Maria was very organized, and the had clearly put considerable effort into preparation of equipment and produce for us to work with. We all enjoyed the many and varied styles of olives for us to prepare and take home. the locations excellent, and we had the chance to pick our own olives from their grove, which was also unexpected.
Well what a fantastic day we had. Maria was warm and very welcoming into her home. I learn't so much and look forward to trying out the various jams, preserves, bottling and even pickles. We all left the day with our goodies to take home and the jam we made was amazing. Thank you again :)
Excellent hands-on learning experience in a small group with Maria - our friendly, knowledgable and organised instructor. Picking olives at the start of our class, progressing through several preserving techniques & finally getting to taking home batches of olives in various stages of preparation - was an ideal way to learn. The venue at Massaros Winery was great - easily found and plenty of parking available. Good value class in terms of cost and time spent.
