Vita-slaw with cabbage, carrots, and apples

Vita-slaw with cabbage, carrots, and apples

This is the remedy for January: a seasonal vitamin-packed slaw that was bold, flavourful and healthy.

We made this so many times this month, we lost count. Quick, tangy, and immune-boosting.

The trifecta of citrus, cabbage, and carrots this time of year really deliver that nutritious punch (hello, ☀️  vitamin C!). All mixed up with new harvest olive oil weaving flavours together and bringing out the very best for these ingredients at their peak.

Citizens of soil winter slaw recipe
Here are the ingredients you'll need:

  • cabbage
  • carrot
  • apple
  • ginger (fresh root, about a thumb size)
  • lemon or citrus of your choice (unwaxed as we finely chop the peel and put it in there too!)
  • herbs (we used spring onions and mint most times)
  • vinegar (obsessed with Willy's organic raw apple cider vinegar with honey & turmeric—it was MADE for this slaw)
  • our new harvest oil from Crete

Now grate everything and splash enough vinegar and oil that it’s properly soupy! Soak up leftover pools with bread. 🤌

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. If you read the article we wrote about the spike in olive oil prices, you're aware th...
