Why buy Australian olive oil?
Originating in Spain, Greece and Italy, olive oil has a debaucherous history that dates back before the written language. It’s exactly this long and rich history that has started the common misconception that the best olive oils in the world come from this region. But did you know that Australian EVOO is of the highest grade in the world?
European countries have had a long history of shandying their product with lesser quality olive oils, canola or vegetable oils. Australia’s strict food laws means that when you buy an Australian EVOO, you’re getting exactly what you pay for.
Like wine, EVOO acquires a unique taste adopted from its terroir. It’s best consumed fresh to understand this unique flavour. An oil with low food miles will add an extra kick of flavour to your cooking, especially if used fresh.
