Francesco, whose family makes this olive oil, is one of our favourite humans in the world. We first met him at his little stall at Herne Hill Farmers Market on a cold Sunday in February.
His family's unfiltered olive oil is, quite frankly, ridiculously good. It is obtained directly from tondina and carolea olives grown in Cassano Ionio (CS) - Italy. The oil's sweet, gentle and delicate flavour is ideal to use in everyday cooking or as a finishing oil for gourmet dishes.
We have a large tank of the oil in the Guzzl shop which we use for refilling customer's empty bottles. Swing by and have a taste if you are in the neighbourhood.
We eat a lot of it just with crusty bread.
