The Only Olive Oil We Use
Extra virgin olive oil makes everything taste better! 3L tin.
“We tried this olive oil about a year ago and fell in love with its buttery creamy taste, and flexibility. We use it daily to cook our morning eggs, dress our salads, and to fry everything from zucchini fritters to chicken. We are fans for life!” — The Minchoffs
“This Cretan extra virgin olive oil is peppery tasting with a fresh apple fruity aroma and a pleasant buttery mouthfeel. I love it for dipping fresh bread and feta, as well as for cooking.” — Marika Grossman
