All week I have been looking forward to heading to Spain for some olive oil culture. I can’t tell you how happy I am I chose the informal olive oil education option. This is going to be much more fun than sitting in a classroom. As an anthropologist I’ve always thought the best way to learn is from doing. I can’t wait to see the beautiful olive groves of Andalusia, talk to olive farmers and millers and get a better of understanding of what role olives play in the local culture.
First I am off to Madrid and then down to Cazorla in Jaen. Stay tuned for the adventure and lots of photos.
