Oliveira Velha next event 2021-08-15

Dear friends,


It is with great pleasure that we announce our new project, Oliveira Velha, born from the friendship between Amor é Cego olive oil and Tua Madre restaurant. After getting to know each other casually in the Évora market in 2019, we began to realize that we share common ideas and values: environmental sustainability, the use of local and seasonal products, food with color and flavor and, not least, the extraordinary power that gastronomy has to, in a simple way, bring people together and create memories for the future.


We would like to invite you to join us in this sharing experience, through which you can be in the middle of nature, walk through the olive grove, learn more about the production of olive oil and its benefits, hold a technical olive oil tasting and finally , at the table, we will tell our and your stories, in a relaxed, unhurried way, as if you were at home, under a two thousand year old olive tree, using the best ingredients that nature provides us, worked in a superb way by Francesco and by Marisa.


In the end, you might want to come back with friends.
