Olive oil expert Nancy Harmon Jenkins, author of “Virgin Territory: Exploring the World of Olive Oil,” will appear at a book signing and discussion at Fiore Artisan Olive Oils & Vinegars, 8 Rodick Place, on Friday, May 1, from 6:30-8:30 p.m.
Arguably the leading authority on olive oil and the healthy Mediterranean diet for the past 20 years, Jenkins wrote this seventh book as part autobiography, culinary history and cookbook. The volume presents more than 100 dishes that showcase olive oil, ranging from soups to seafood to sauces to sweets. The book features color photographs of the recipe dishes and Jenkins’ own olive tree grove taken by Penny de los Santos, senior contributing photographer for “Saveur” magazine.
Jenkins divides her time between her home in Camden and a “farmette” in Tuscany, where she produces her own small-batch olive oil. “We’re thrilled to have the opportunity to host an event with a true practitioner of the Mediterranean lifestyle,” said Nancy O’Brien, owner of Fiore.
