Bellucci Premium recaps an article that shares the details of an online school that is dedicated to educating its students about olive oil.
According to an Olive Oil Times article published on November 12th titled “International Olive Oil School Opens its Virtual Doors,” a new online school located at http://www.oliveoilschool.org will offer classes in olive oil quality, health benefits and applications.
The article details how The International Olive Oil School (IOOS), which launched this week, is designed for both casual and professional chefs. Curtis Cord, the publisher of the Olive Oil Times, was quoted in the article saying, “With an initial offering of courses on olive oil tasting, health and culinary application, the program is being designed for everyone from home chefs to food industry professionals.” Cord also adds that the curriculum will include classes on “olive oil marketing, product development and production.”
Each participant will log onto the platform and view the lecture via webcam, according to the article. This will enable users to ask questions and engage with the instructor. “For olive oil tasting and sensory assessment courses, a collection of olive oil samples selected by the instructor will be delivered to each participant in advance of the lesson,” says the article.
Cord stressed his expectations for the 25-person classes, which will be held on Fridays to accommodate users from around the globe. “There was a need for an independent online course platform centered on advancing education on this vital subject. IOOS compliments the mission of Olive Oil Times perfectly, which is to facilitate such a sharing of knowledge,” says Cord.
“It’s great to see that the spreading of olive oil knowledge will be facilitated by an online school with qualified instructors,” says Natalie Sexenian, marketing manager for organic olive oil producer Bellucci Premium. “I’m excited to see how the school will grow and how the curriculum will evolve to address new issues that may arise in the olive oil industry.”
Bellucci offers three different types of oil, including an organic option, with a mild peppery flavor and fruity undertones that will satisfy any palate. Bellucci Premium Toscano extra virgin olive oil uses olives that are grown on the beautiful landscapes of Tuscany, and maintained by 3rd and 4th generation farmers. The third type of oil Bellucci produces is the finest 100% Italian extra virgin olive oil, grown in many different regions of Italy.
