Medoliva - Olive Oil Exhibition

Took a trip up to Arezzo today which is about 1 3/4 hours north of us over in Tuscany.

We went to have a look at the above bi-annual exhibition to check out what new equipment there was and what were the latest ideas and issues in the world of olive oil. Picked up some ideas and new contacts which was useful.

It was interesting, but you got the feeling that is wasn't quite as busy and there were not quite as many exhibitors as there had been in previous years. The effect of the recession or 'la crisi' as it is called here.

Still good day away from the grove and a nice plate of Pici al ragu for lunch- Pici is a traditional Tuscan pasta and is like a very fat spaghetti.
