An international panel of leading experts will assemble at The International Culinary Center in New York City on April 16-18, 2013 for the New York International Olive Oil Competition to identify, and honor, the best extra virgin olive oils in the world.
Organized by the leading olive oil publication, Olive Oil Times, the five-day event in SoHo will include tastings, workshops and culinary demonstrations by top chefs.
Two seminars will be held at The International Culinary during the week that will teach chefs and other culinary professionals the advanced points of olive oil at a time when the public’s curiosity about it is at an all-time high.
The winners will be featured all year long in a special section of the online olive oil guide on the Olive Oil Times website. Readers will be able to learn about the newly-crowned producers and click through to retail outlets that carry their oils.
During that week in April, many of the olive oil entries will also be featured at some of New York’s top restaurants in special pairing menus developed to highlight the characteristics of these elite extra virgin olive oils.
