Ravioli with Garda extra virgin olive oil stuffing and black olive charcoals

Extra Virgin Garda DOP olive oil’s distinctive traits are its naturally delicate flavor and its elegance. At the taste it can be recognized for harmony or its organoleptic notes and for the light and balanced aromas: the scents of fresh grass, aromatic herbs, hay and artichoke, together with the typical almond aftertaste, make it unique. Recipe by chef Carlo Bresciani

Oil and Yoga

A foretaste. In the holistic area of the 2017 Olio Officina Festival, Eva Nuti will be coordinating two days devoted to an ancient discipline for controlling the mind, body and spirit. Oil comes from the earth. On the earth, our feet stand, giving us stability, like the roots of an olive tree. Stability (muladhara) is the origin of pleasure, our sense of taste (svadhishthana), energy and fire (manipura), from which all actions derive (anahata). Oil. Energy in motion
