Come join us for a night of discovery as Nicholas Coleman guides you through the world of olive oil in this indepth and informative tasting.
Nicholas Coleman’s years in Tuscany hand-harvesting olives in a grove located just outside the town of Arezzo and his experience overseeing the pressing of some of the worlds finest olive oil gives him a unique and intimate perspective on this fascinating and increasingly popular subject. Nicholas has given olive oil seminars in America to Mario Batali’s staff and sommeliers at Otto, Manzo and the fanciest offshoot of the Bastianich/Batali empire Del Posto, where he worked directly with executive chef Mark Ladner to pioneer the first ever olive oil tasting menu. In addition, he has taught olive oil courses at NYU and Columbia University and has appeared in numerous publications including La Cucina Italiana, GQ, Real Simple Magazine and Vogue. In 2012 Nicholas earned his sensory aptitude degree from Italy’s premier olive oil tasting school ONAOO, graduating Summa Cum Laude as a certified technical olive oil taster. Recently, Nicholas was selected as the youngest judge at the NYIOOC, the world’s most prestigious olive oil competition for his expertise–which is now sought after worldwide.
