Extra Virgin Olive Oil...

Extra Virgin Olive Oil is the best olive oil you can buy because to be classed as Extra Virgin it must have no faults and taste absolutely wonderful on everything from salads, to soups, pasta, breads. You name it - you can probably have Extra Virgin Olive Oil with it.

Extra Virgin Olive Oil comes from the first pressing of the olives, using no heat or chemicals to extract the precious oil.

It will have a fresh, fruity flavour with a slight bitterness. This makes for 'balanced' oil, which brings out the flavours of all foods. It sometimes smells like ripe tomatoes, fresh cut grass or even apples.

Unlike wine, olive oil does not improve with age and is best consumed fresh to appreciate the rich flavours and health benefits.
