Burrata, citrus, chilli and extra virgin olive oil.

Burrata, citrus, chilli, preserved lemon & chicory

This recipe from chef Lewis De Haas of Crispin who makes the sort of ingredient-led, colourful meals we all need more of.

Like us, he's passionate about championing small producers to get flavour at its absolute best. We've been drooling over the way he's been using our oil, so when he offered to share a recipe we could all do at home—we knew it would be a banger. And here we have it: simple, fresh, vibrant, indulgent—and completely dictated by what is currently in season.

 Burrata, citrus, chilli, preserved lemon & chicory

Here's the method:

Serves four.

  • Tear the burrata and pop it in a serving dish. Season with salt and black pepper.
  • Combine the chilli, preserved lemon paste, dill and olive oil to make a dressing.
  • Mix the chicory into the dressing and spoon over the burrata.
  • With a small knife cut the top and bottom of the citrus fruit to give 2 flat edges. Then, slice around the fruit removing the skin and pith. Gently cut between the membranes to remove the segments.
  • Put the fruit pieces over the burrata et voilà!

Ways to make it more your own:

  • Experiment with the kinds of citrus you add in there.

  • If you can’t get a hold of burrata—swap it for mozzarella.

Meet Francesca: our new Sicilian olive oil producer

Born between the mountains and sea, this extra virgin olive oil is telling the story of rural Sicilian identity.  We were always going to have an olive oil from Sicily. Sicily and the southern part of Italy has the bulk of the Italy's olive cultivars, and the diversity of flavours across the island is striking. You also have the iconic Nocellara olives—those big, buttery olives give off real "cool natural wine bar" vibes. But even in one of the biggest olive oil regions in the world, finding ...

This is Sparta: Introducing our EVOO from Greece

It’s a whole new place, but still in one of our favourite regions. The Peloponnese is a magical peninsula, encapsulating both ancient Greece and the modern era—which feels fitting for this oil. Old traditions and family legacies have mixed with high-tech precision to deliver thoughtful quality, all centred around a community making its comeback.  I lost a lot of sleep about the state of Greek oil this year.
