From a Cooking Event held in Balikesir, Turkey.
All foods were natural, organic and locally procured.
It is very well known that the Aegean coast of Turkey has a rich history of olive cultivation and since antiquity the region is famous for its finest quality of olive oils. But Balikesir in particular is considered to be one of the best regions in olive production which deserves recognition and appreciation. And in Balikesir, after the hard work of olive picking and producing olive oil, there comes the time for celebration. Our Olive Oil is an intimate one compared with the large production plants around the world, but it creates great joy for the town people. If you happen to visit this lovely city next winter, do not miss your chance to visit this wonderful historic city and share the taste of delicious local olives and olive oil.
