Taste of Crete Featured at Promotion of Greek Olive Oil at the Greek Embassy

Taste of Crete will be one of the exhibitors for a promotion of Greek Olive Oils at the Greek Embassy on June 15, 2006. Attendees will have the opportunity to sample their award winning extra virgin olive oil. It just won the Gold in the 2006 International Olive Oils of the World Competition. Taste of Crete carries the PDO-Protected Designation of Origin seal. This is a highly coveted European Union recognition of its exceptional quality. As an example of baking with olive oil, another Taste of Crete product, Evangelia’s Traditional Greek Cookies-Olive Oil & Wine will also be sampled.

“I am honored to have been invited to participate in this special embassy event and to have the opportunity to showcase my Taste of Crete Extra Virgin Olive Oil,” states Esther Luongo Psarakis, founder of Taste of Crete. “Greek Olive Oil in the United States is still an undiscovered gem. I frequently conduct olive oil tastings and cooking demonstrations. People are amazed at the quality and how full of flavor Greek olive oil can be.” Ms. Psarakis further elaborates, “I married into this great culture and its healthy culinary traditions. In fact, the people of Crete have the highest consumption of olive oil in the world. My goal is to bring Taste of Crete products to health conscious and gourmet food loving Americans.”

Taste of Crete products are carried by a number of gourmet locations and on their website. More information and a complete listing of local stores can be found at www.tasteofcrete.com. Ms. Psarakis was one of the 2005 Success Award Winners for the New Jersey Small Business Development Centers.
