I have kindly been offered two free cookery class tickets at Food at 52 Cookery School to giveaway thanks to Olive It!, olives have excellent nutritional properties so naturally Olive It! would like to see us incorporate them into our cooking more regularly. The winner can visit any day within the next six months.
According to the Olive It! website studies show that including olives in a daily diet helps replace saturated fat with unsaturated fat, which can help maintain normal blood cholesterol levels (very useful if your like me and get carried away with cake and chocolate!). Black olives are a good source of iron, I had an iron deficiency in my last pregnancy so that’s useful to know. Snacking on olives sure beats anything processed.
Although my mum put me off olives as a child, she made an olive pie that was if I am putting it mildly, disgusting. I need to revisit the ingredient and have a positive experience of my own. Olives are a versatile ingredient with strong flavours so in the right recipe they work exceptionally well. I wish my mum had used the Olive It! site for recipe inspiration.
The lucky winner of the cookery class who will have an authentic experience learning more about the unique flavours of Spain (fresh seafood, cured jamon along with sherry, olives, paprika and saffron), this is an ideal opportunity if you wanted to try something different and develop your confidence in the kitchen. If you enjoy eating Mediterranean food (which is said to lower heart disease!) you will learn the skills to host your own tapas party and keep your guests healthy by the sounds of it. Food at 52 cookery school is a professional cook school in the heart of Clerkenwell, London.
You can follow Olive It! on Twitter @Oliveit_UK and like on Facebook www.facebook.com/OliveitUK. To enter the competition please kindly complete the form below by the 17th of April.
