International Register of ONAOO Professional Tasters

Elise La Gamba



After a three-year educational path, from 2018 Elise is an O.N.A.O.O. certified Professional Olive Oil Taster from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA.

Her passion for olive oil started in 2011 with an investigation into the quality of olive oil at a local supermarket. Her research sought to answer one question: was the olive oil on the shelf really extra virgin?

She is a traveller, foodie, self-taught cook, and loves educating others on how to find superior extra virgin olive oil; especially in regions that do not traditionally produce olive oil.
