Fresh-cut grass on the nose, then flavours of green banana and tomato leaf wih an avocado bit coming through. There’s a slightly peppery finish that's a sign it's rich in Oleocanthal (anti-inflammatory, antioxidant 'superfood' compound).
Drizzle, bake and fry (yes, fry—just as the Greeks do!)
- Sarah says: I use it to ‘finish’ any meat or veggie dish to make sure I get the most out of the flavour and health benefits. I also love to pour it generously over pastas and soup dishes.
- Michael says: I like to start a meal soaking it up with bread, but I like to end a meal with it poured over vanilla or chocolate ice cream for a creamy, rich indulgence. Sounds weird but pairs perfectly.
