A record number of entries from dozens of countries were judged at the world’s largest and most prestigious olive oil quality competition this week in New York.
Despite one of the most challenging harvest seasons in recent memory, 671 olive oils competed at the third annual New York International Olive Oil Competition.
The announcement of the results capped an all-day conference on the culture of olive oil at the International Culinary Center (ICC) in New York’s Soho neighborhood. Speakers at the conference included the fashion designer Norma Kamali, Lionsgate Entertainment founder and philanthropist Frank Giustra, Oldways president Sara Baer-Sinnott, ICC founder Dorothy Cann-Hamilton and many others.
Conference attendees were the first to taste the newly-crowned NYIOOC winners at an awards reception hosted by the International Culinary Center immediately following the unveiling.
