1. Re: olive oil tastings in cortona/tuscany

Dec 8th in Cortona is the Sagra della Ciaccia fritta - a particular bread made in cortona, in this case fried, and watch out cuz traditionally it also contains some meat (in case you're veg like i am).

Dec 5-8 there is a major conference on oil in Sarteano which is not far (www.tempodellolio.com); I cannot really tell if there will be tasting but i assume if you showed up there'd be lots of oil around.

You are likely to find new oil (the very green kind) pretty much everywhere at that time, and in cortona it's excellent. You may also be just in time for the new wine harvest.

the christmas presepe will be set up just about everywhere starting in those days so look out for creative reevocations of nativity scenes in every church.

enjoy! AMK
