COOKING FOR HEALTH WITH OLIVE OILS - a collaboration with Blue Door Oil & Vinegar

  • Blue Door Oil & Vinegar 8561 8A Avenue Southwest Calgary, AB, T3H 0V5 Canada (map)

For centuries, home cooks from around the Mediterranean have prepared healthy meals using locally sourced olive oils. This was all before the 'locally sourced' movement we know today. Cooking with this fat not only made their foods taste great, but imparted health-giving properties as well.

We need fats for the formation of each and every cell in our body. By choosing good quality olive oil as one of the fats in our kitchen, we ensure the stability of all cells and tissues in our body, further protecting us against the outside world. Olive oil contributes to lowering the incidence of heart disease, has anti-inflammatory properties, supports the liver, and digestive and immune systems.

Join us for a cooking class as we explore the health-giving properties of olive oil. We will cook and sample mouthwatering, easy-to-prepare side dishes for every meal from breakfast to supper. Owners Bruce and Courtney will lead the discussion along with local Holistic Nutritionist Luka Symons. Arm yourself with the knowledge of how to eat for overall health, and have a tasty time doing it!

Tickets are $50 per person. In order to register and reserve your spot at the kitchen counter, email Bruce and Courtney at or visit their shop in West Springs.
