On today’s episode of THE FOOD SEEN, Nicholas Coleman found his love of olive oil by way of music. A serendipitous stop in Arezzo, Italy, home to Guido Monaco, the inventor of modern musical notation (you know, “Do Re Mi Fa Sol La Ti Do”), Coleman found his coda during olive tree harvest. Since, he’s been devoted to promoting and peddling the freshest olive oils around the world. The first self-proclaimed oleologist (olive oil expert), he’s sought, and sold, the gold standards in field, from Italy, to South Africa, and even Chile. Co-founder of Grove and Vine, a subscription based membership to custom extra virgin olive oils sourced around the world, Coleman still has the music in him, often carrying around his Bansuri flute (because his Carl Thompson olive wood left bass is too heavy), as if he’s the Pied Piper of Pressed Olives.
