About our Guest Speaker

Christi LassenChristi Lassen

Christi Lassen and family opened Olivia Olive Oil in Franklin, TN in 2010 as the first olive oil and balsamic vinegar tasting store in the state. Now a few similar stores have followed suit in the area, yet what sets Olivia apart is their dedication to privately researching, handpicking, and sourcing their products from many different award-winning olive groves and artisan makers around the world.

Olivia Olive Oil is their response to a growing need and desire to enjoy the freshest, healthiest, highest quality, and best tasting cuisine anywhere to be found. They believe in the “farm to table” approach and that a delicious meal should come with ease.

Olive Oil has earned acclaim over centuries for its healing qualities. Researchers have found evidence that olive oil cuts the risk of heart disease, helps fight cancer, wards off arthritis and diabetes, lessens inflammation and pain, helps memory, and much more.

Christi loves to share the experience of how to take part in a true olive oil tasting while sharing about these health benefits, the pressing process, and lots of fun recipe ideas! Join us to try some excellent tasting olive oils and vinegars both as a healthy, guilt-free splurge and to learn some fun ways to liven up your dinner table!
