The Sant Miquel-Eurofruit Fair will also host a pairing of fruit and oil by the journalist and gourmet Pep Nogué.
The extra virgin olive oil returns with force to the Sant Miquel Fair and to the Eurofruit show in Lleida. The Protected Designation of Origin (PDO) Les Garrigues proposes visitors to enjoy a “Walk with the PDO Les Garrigues”, in which, in addition to being able to taste the oil of Lleida with a seal of quality, the most characteristic aromas of the oils (almond, tomato, leaf, etc.) characteristic of the arbequina and its link with the territory can be discovered. Les Garrigues PDO will be present with a stand and various activities at the 64th edition of the Sant Miquel Agricultural Fair and the 33rd edition of the Eurofruit show, events that will take place at the Fira de Lleida exhibition centre from 27 to 30 September.
The public will be able to taste the oils from each of the cooperatives with this seal of quality, as every day there will be present, on a rotating basis, the oil from five of the registered cooperatives, located in their own counters, and will be able to find out everything related to these centenary institutions and their oil. The Les Garrigues PDO stand will also host a sample of oils from all the registered cooperatives, in addition to the active presence of cooperatives, with their own exhibition and direct sale of oil.
Another of the novelties organised by the Regulatory Council is a pairing of fruit and oil, directed by Pep Nogué, journalist and gourmet, specialising in foods with a quality mark. The aim is to raise awareness of the possibilities of preparing fruit dishes, mainly from Lleida, with extra virgin olive oil with DOP Les Garrigues, healthy and essential foods in a healthy and balanced diet.
During the four days of the fair visitors will also have the opportunity to remember and enjoy the healthy snacks of bread with oil DOP Les Garrigues and chocolate and participate in oil draws.
