Frescolio at the Golden Apron Gala

Frescolio is very excited to provide oil and vinegar for the participants of the second annual Golden Apron Gala on Thursday, May 7th, 2015. We will also be offering a tasting table during the event, giving everyone an interesting tasting experience of various oils and vinegars. Proceeds from the event go towards Wolseley Family Place, a multi-service organization committed to helping families in their community. The Golden Apron Gala is a cooking competition where many talented groups battle to create the best dish of the evening, Iron Chef style! We will also be sponsoring the “Flashes in the Pan” team, led by the Deputy Minister of Children & Youth Opportunities, Jan Sanderson. Theirs is a family team, which contributes greatly to their ability to work cohesively and come up with a winning dish. Congratulations to all the teams who are participating in this great event, we’re very happy to be a part of it! To learn more about Wolseley Family Place, visit their...

Check out the video here to see Paul in all his B-Boy glory!   Frescolio offers couples the option of gifting their guests a unique wedding favour in the form of olive-oil and balsamic vinegar pairings.
