The wealth of industry resources available on the OliveBiz website keeps on expanding, with October’s Conference providing a new collection to the cache.

Among the new resources are several with a culinary bent – recipes using olive products from two of the event’s most popular sessions, Thursday night’s Conference Dinner and Friday afternoon’s interactive cooking demonstration.

The Conference Dinner saw a custom menu created by Chef Shui and the student team from the Canberra Institute of Technology specifically for the AOA. Each dish featured Australian EVOO and/or table olives – including desserts – many in surprising ways and all utterly delicious!

Everyone at the dinner was impressed, and many were keen to access the recipes, so Chef Shui has generously provided them to the AOA to share with the industry.

Friday afternoon’s interactive cooking demonstration by food media personalities Michelle Southan and Joanna Savill was another delegate favourite, providing both practical skills and an amazing array of culinary uses for Australian EVOO and olives.

Michelle and Joanna have also provided the AOA with the recipes for each of the dishes they cooked or had ready for tasting, each including explanations around the ‘perfect match’ elements of the olive product/s used.

Between them, the recipes cover everything from biscuits, cakes and breakfast dishes to main courses and desserts, and are another great resource for growers wanting to showcase the versatility of Australian olive products to their customers.

They’re now available to download on the OliveBiz website here, along with the other 2023 National Conference & Trade Exhibition resources.
