Fresh-cut grass on the nose, then flavours of banana and tomato leaf with 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).
It's easier to count the ways we wouldn't use this oil. It's our go-to for everything. It's gorgeous on carbs, like rice and potatoes. In the winter, we're using it on roasted veg and beans. In the summer, it's all about tomato salads and pizzas. It's also glorious in a martini and THE BEST THING EVER on ice cream.
