Here's your official invite: Come see SavorSA at our booth at Olives Olé on Saturday. The festival is a 30-minute drive from San Antonio to the Sandy Oaks Olive Orchard, near Elmendorf, and promises to be a lot of fun on a bright spring day.
Olives Olé, the International Olive Festival of Texas, is the annual fundraiser put on by Les Dames d'Escoffier San Antonio.
You'll be able to pick up our extraordinarily attractive and useful handouts, as well as enter our drawing for some awesome prizes (sorry, we're keeping them secret until Saturday). Plus, John Griffin and Nick Mistry of SavorSA will be cruising the grounds doing a live blog.
Then stop in at the food concessions where I (along with a small army of volunteers) will be serving up Grilled Veggie Pitas with Feta Cheese.
Along the way, sample olives from the region's largest olive bar, shop for health and beauty items made with olives and olive oil, and dine at a truly different array of food stands, that include Paella, Greek Kofta Kebabs, Mediterranean Salad and much more. Stop in for a seminar on olives and olive oil for health, as well as cooking seminars and a nursery from which to pick up a beautiful, healthy olive tree.
The entrance fee is $10. The festival goes from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Beer and wine will be sold, and there should be plenty of parking. For directions, see map below.
