Why Use Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO)

EVOO is one of the most ancient of foods on our Planet. The Oldest Olive Tree in Greece is reputed to be between 3000 and 4000 years old.

Homer called Virgin Olive Oil Liquid Gold and Hippocrates, the founder of modern day Medicine, 'the great healer'.

Unchanged for centuries, it is still best when harvested and processed traditionally. It should be Cold Pressed and Solely by Mechanical Means. No acid and no heat.


The Health Benefits of EVOO

There are many reason why we should be using EVOO as part of our everyday diet. Some parts of Greece have become designated Blue Zones because the inhabitants live such long and healthy lives. The Mediterranean diet and Extra Virgin Olive Oil have been identified as key components of that.

My personal recommendation is to use EVOO with Vegetables. It does something magic to them. Hot or Cold. From the most unfashionable lettuce, drizzled with a little oil and some good salt to the daily Greek method of cooking Vegetables 'Lathera'. This is the most delicious addition to your larder
