After spending two years in Corinth, Paul left the city for Ephesus. His teachings in Corinth had a lasting impact, leading to the growth of a thriving church. However, this church faced challenges from the surrounding culture. To address this, Paul wrote several letters to the Corinthians, sharing his heartfelt advice and guidance.

Despite being far away, Paul continued to love and support the church in Corinth. He went back there six years later during his third missionary journey to share his message again. Paul notably went on trial in the bustling agora, or marketplace, of Corinth, in front of Gallio (Acts 18:12-17).

Let’s See Now Why Olive Oil Is So Experiential!

Discover the distinction between professional olive oil tasting, where experts evaluate various aspects of the oil such as its aroma, taste, and texture, and simple olive oil tasting, which is more casual and focused on personal preferences.

Professional olive oil tasting: Sure, here is a paraphrased version of the text: In olive oil tasting, special glasses are utilized. Similar to wine tasting, olive oil evaluation focuses on three key characteristics: 1. Aroma: The distinctive scent of the olive oil. 2. Bitterness: The intensity of the bitter flavor in the oil. 3. Spiciness: The intensity of the spicy sensation that the oil produces.

Here is the procedure:

  • Add olive oil to the special tasting glass.
  • We hold the glass in our hands and stir to slightly heat the olive oil.
  • We smell trying to identify each of its aromas.
  • We drink a sip to perceive the intensity of its bitter & spicy taste.

At our olive oil tasting, guests enjoy fresh bread, bruschetta with Kalamon olive paste, and a mini salad with vegetables and olives. Each person tastes two award-winning olive oils, olive paste, and pitted Kalamon olives. Afterward, using virtual reality headsets, participants can immerse themselves in every step of olive oil production. This interactive experience brings the olive oil making process to life.
