Olio Officina Food Festival

WTC Milan is partner of Olio Officina Food Festival in Milan (23rd - 25th January
2014), a great happening entirely focused on one of the most loved products all
over the world: extra virgin olive oil.

WTC Milan is glad to promote the third edition of Olio Officina Food Festival, a three days great event on olive oils. Designed and directed by Luigi Caricato - one of
the main Italian olive oil experts, writer and journalist as well - the Festival is a unique opportunity to discover the world around olive oils.
The Festival proposes debates, olistic experiences, cooking workshops, tasting sessions, laboratories for children, gastronomic, economic and cultural analyses of our sociability, through the connection and approach to food.
This third edition is intended to be a consideration about “The social side of oil and food”, on occasion of 2014 as the International Year of Family Farming, as declared by the ONU.

Areas of debate:

Scientific area - Economy is social. The importance of recovering the ground to its original agricultural scope: practicing a sustainable and ethic agriculture to give dignity to workers and healthy products to consumers.
Cooking area - Workshops, demonstrations and debates on how to use different oils in cooking. Bread and oil and unusual matching such as chocolate and oil and mango and oil.
Kids area- Laboratories and activities designed for children - still free from prejudice-to enable them to recognize the different varieties of oils.
Olistic area - Extra Virgin Olive Oil as a panacea for the soul as well. Aromatic water massages and body oils dedicated to the seven chakras. An exclusive experience offered at Olio Officina Food Festival by a reiki teacher.
Culture Area - Book launches and cultural performances for spiritual wellness.
Tasting area - Access, upon reservation, to the Tasting School with oil ad finger food tasting sessions to understand the quality and the range of flavours of different condiments. Access to the e-taster, a technological oil bar.
