Travel Olive Oil Andalusia in partnership with Tryvel
Andalusia is the region that produces the most oil in the world, with the province of Jaén in the lead. It is internationally recognized as “The World Capital of Olive Oil”, where the most important Fair in the sector “Expoliva” is also celebrated.
The La Loma region (Úbeda, Baeza …) is a “Sea of Olives”.
There are countless activities that we will have the opportunity to participate in and that will show us this exciting universe. Visits to olive groves, extraction, storage and packaging processes in the mills, olive oil tasting, miller breakfasts and gastronomic days. We will have the opportunity to get to know and discover the fruity, sweet, bitter and spicy flavors, to appreciate their nuances, smells, colors and properties that differentiate some varieties from others, the most appropriate usage techniques and how to get the most out of each one.
Olive oil is essential in the gastronomy of the Andalusian region. Almost everything has the essence of the olive and its “liquid gold”. The daily pleasure is to taste the Extra Virgin Olive Oil from this region of Spain, when used in salads, vegetables, pates, bread or in the famous toasts. It is irreplaceable to make Andalusian gazpacho, cordoba salmorejo, sauces or mayonnaise without olive oil and it is unsurpassed when accompanying tomatoes, ham, cheese and Andalusian wine.
We will find some of the best Extra Virgin Olive Oil in the world in Andalusia and discover its fascinating production process.
