Side by side olive oil tasting
Sometimes we (by we, I mean the Expat community) have to invent our own fun. While I have ideas about fun events, I fail to execute them. Fortunately, our expat community has folks who will think of something, organize it and carry it off. Pamela Shelton Johns is one of those folks. She, along with others, organized at her house an afternoon gathering one Sunday in February to taste and compare olive oils produced by Expats. Here’s a few pics from the event.
My fav from Tania and Keith
Our friends John and Richard rode along with us. That’s John standing next to Pamela and the woman in red…
was visiting from Louisville where I grew up and where….
Pamela’s husband, Johnny Johns grew up too. He and I had fun talking about Louisville.
It was a lovely break from moving and great to meet new folks.
Pamela is a whoop de doo cookbook author and teaches classes here in Italy and I think in the states sometimes too. A link to their B&B and to her http://www.poggio-etrusco.com/ . And a link to Tania and Keith’s oil if you want to enjoy some of this great oil http://www.lartedellolivo.com/.
