Where can I learn about different Olives?
I often pass by the olive displays at Whole Foods and St. Lawrence Market and don't know where to start.
Are there any classes or tastings offerred in the GTA where I can learn what is what?
P.S. I have been to Olive & Olives on Queen East which has a great assortment of Olive Oil but no olives. With the exception of the horrendously olive colored bags the give with a purchase, two thumbs up.

I would suggesst going to a place that has a good selection when it's quieter and asking a few questions. The ladies behind the counter at Arz Fine Foods are pretty good at giving descriptions and will let you try some out. All the Best used to have a small, well chosen bunch.

Maybe instead of "passing by" the olive displays, stop and buy some olives. Take them home. Look at them, smell them, touch them. Then eat them. You should find much about what is what with this method.
