This class is open to everyone, and is part of an ongoing collaboration between Deb and Phil Brooks, owners of the We Olive Store on 2nd Street, and beachgreens.
“It’s great having Aliye in the store featuring local foods with local olive oils. Each dish features an extra virgin olive oil and we taste the oil on by itself and then in the dish. It’s amazing to see how the fresh olive oil enhances the dishes,” says Brooks.
