Award winning olive oil

A few weeks ago I was sent some Extra Virgin cold pressed olive oil from Tuscany, and OMG what a Great Olive Oil.

It is a completely different taste experience from the supermarket oil I normally buy. It has a wonderful  herby aroma, Artichoke and cut grass with a slight sweet after taste. 

I would not suggest you use it for everyday cooking (it’s too good for that) but for dressings and drizzles it will add depth and weight to a dish something 99% of own brand oil cannot hope to achieve.

Its not cheap but you don’t need to use a lot so it will go along way. The producers have asked me if  I would like to recommend it on the blog and I said yes.

It costs about £20 per bottle plus delivery but it’s worth it. They sell it in 4 bottle lots, it’s better value to buy four bottles as the postage is cheaper but you can always get together with a friend and divide the bottles up.

If you want to order some go to the producers website they will be happy to send you the Award winning oil.
