Local charity Cam Sight will continue their successful programme of foodie fundraising events this month with a Cheese and Olive Oil Tasting, to be held at the Freemasons Hall, in Cambridge’s Bateman Street.
On 26 May, 7pm, Mauro Boero of OlioItalia will be joined by Richard and Christine Callum of The Truckle Cheese Company to provide an evening of gastronomic delights and flavour pairings. Tastings of oils from the Calabria region will be complemented by a range of cheeses from The Truckle Cheese Company. Mark Burton of Fellows Brewery, Charles and Laura Roberts of Pickled Pig Cider, and Franco Amaro of online Italian Delicatessen Agrumia will also be in attendance.
Mauro Boero says: “At OlioItalia we are committed to bring the best artisan, high quality products to the UK. The products offer unique tastes, guaranteed healthiness and 100% traceability to the producers.
“During the presentation I will give an insight into the important role that olive oil plays in the Mediterranean Diet (the healthiest in the world), the production methods that are used to make our products, the flavour and landscape of the beautiful area of Calabria, a region of great historical importance that was first colonized by the Greeks.”
There will also be a raffle on the night and tickets cost £15.
