A legacy of liquid gold

OliveTree1

In Greece, we are bond together with olive oil, for more than 5 millennia. It’s a piece of our nation’s history, a traditional art, a Greek know-how. Our ancestors left us a legacy that we can not surpass, and is more precious than you may imagine. A legacy of love for olive oil.

Olive tree is a symbol of prosperity and peace, of health, love and creation.

At the same time, it is a synonym for our culture, our nutrition & our tradition.

We are starting to think that maybe all olive trees’ roots end in Greece.

The population of olive trees in Greece exceeds 40.000.000. The populations of citizens in Greece exceeds 11.000.000.        For each one us, there are about 4 olives. 4 olives to grow, 4 olives to water, 4 olives to prune, 4 olives to harvest.

Greek olive trees are unique.

The taste of the olives and olive oil is more than enough to prove it.

 

Greek food is always comfort food

Summer is knocking on our doors, and we have to be prepared to taste it 100%.

Because we deserve to enjoy every day tastes that bring joy and smiles to our table.♥
In Greece, there is something magical about eating together. It is an almost sacred family moment, in which every face is glowing, and problems and miseries are magically disappeared. The whole family reunites, the kitchen is full of people cooking, giving a hand, or bringing back and forth to the dining table cutlery, glasses, dishes etc. Everyone is speaking out loud, making jokes, playing with each other, and talking about news headlines, etc. Grandparents, grandsons, brothers and sisters, altogether. Smiles, voices, flavors and aromas. This is Greek comfort food.
This scenery reflects the way we deal with food. Picking the ingredients, preparing the dish, enjoying the taste…

The process is a ceremony that is enjoyed as much as the result.
