New Harvest 2021 Olive Oil Festival
Help kick off the new olive oil season with a day of tastings, demos, market stalls and dreamy Italian eats.
Greek, Italian, Spanish — if you've got a soft spot for Mediterranean eats, chances are you're an olive oil tragic. The folks at That's Amore sure are, and they're putting on a full-blown olive oil festival to celebrate the first of the new-season oil.
Head along to the cheese producer's Thomastown digs from 10am–3pm on Sunday, May 2, and you can pay homage to this globally adored ingredient. On the bill: a day of olive oil tastings, live production demos and, of course, a whole lotta eating.
The kitchen will be dishing up a special menu starring That's Amore cheese and Kyneton Olive Oil, including the cult-favourite four formaggi gnocchi which comes tossed in a 40-kilogram wheel of cheese. You'll browse market stalls from the likes of Imbue Distillery and Lello Pasta, sip cocktails and listen to Siesta Cartel's smooth Italian sounds. And, you'll hit the Cannoleria cart for dessert, of course.
There are a couple of different ticket prices, so you have options. The $10 general admission will get you entry and your choice of menu item, while a $40 ticket also includes a feast of gnocchi, pasta e fagioli, Italian sausage, focaccia and a cheeky cannolo.
