Here, in the heart of Olympia, an area protected for its uniqueness by the EU (PGI territory), also considered the heart of the Greek agricultural production, we produce, in our family-owned olive groves and mill, located a few meters away from the Ancient Olympia ruins, two extra virgin olive oil collections:
“Laurel & Flame” and “Olympian Myth”!
Both “Laurel & Flame” and “Olympian Myth” brands offer you a full range of extra virgin olive oil flavours and aromas, from a rather soft “feel”, up to a very full one. We designed this complete range, for you to pair with the food you create for you or your loved ones.
In the following recipes you will discover our suggestions, there for you to experiment with and enjoy!
Extra virgin olive oil Rules of thumb:
Extra virgin olive oils with a milder taste and aftertaste, such as our “Olympian Myth / Mild”, are ideal for fish, high-fat meats, such as pork, and for cooking, in general.
On the other hand, extra virgin olive oils with a rich flavour and a stronger character, such as our “Laurel & Flame” or our “Olympian Myth / Robust”, are unique for you to dip the bread you love in, for all vegetables, fresh or cooked, for low-fat meats, such as chicken and beef, etc.
We would like to remind you that extra virgin olive oil can replace butter or other fats and can also be used for pastries. The result is a much richer taste and a much healthier diet at the same time.
There are no rules for olive oil dressings. Both our “Laurel & Flame” and “Olympian Myth ” collections offer great choices for those of you who want to set off on your own culinary experiences!
