Presented by Italian Cultural & Community Center at Italian Cultural Center - Milford House

We will discover a nearly unknown land, Puglia, through one of its most precious fruits: extra virgin olive oil. This will be an opportunity to learn how to distinguish its quality and to appreciate its beneficial properties, but also an occasion to enjoy it raw and simple as the land of Puglia creates it.
