After watching Joey Chestnut devour 69 of the high-temperature hot dogs (a new record, incidentally), you probably feel better about the number you put away on Independence Day. Still, after a day of partying, you may be in the mood for a slightly higher-brow food about now.
R Italian Market hears your plea, and is hosting an Olive Oil tasting event this weekend. Trade your hot dog buns for bread dipped in exquisite olive oil. The event is sponsored by Bogaris, and lasts from noon to 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, July 6. You’ll learn the difference between extra virgin olive and virgin olive oil, along with other useful gourmet facts. (Psst: The Bogaris Fresh Extra Virgin Olive Oil comes from Chile and is now available here in the States.)
They’re also offering vinegars for your palette pleasure.
R Italian Market is located at 954 N. SR 135 in Greenwood, and they hope you are able to attend. Finally, if you have a favorite olive oil of your own, R Italian Market encourages you to bring it along with you so that you can directly compare. And don’t worry, you won’t have to put away 69 pieces of bread this weekend.
