There’s nothing quite like the unmistakable aroma of lamb chops charring over hot coals to get your guests salivating. We’ve used Aegean Gold Bio Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil to create a punchy pesto that works as a basting sauce for the chops while they are caramelising over the heat – and adds a pop of brightness when dolloped over the chops just before serving. Peppery rocket, toasted walnuts, garlic, lemon and Parmesan come together to create a flavoursome green pesto that packs a powerful bite of garlicky goodness!

Summer is all about simple, delicious meals, and this gorgeous chicken burger is just that. It’s a healthy alternative to fried chicken, with all the benefits of using a cold-pressed EVOO. We’ve used fresh basil, garlic and Aegean Gold Bio Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil to create a marinade for the chicken and have left it overnight to soak up all the flavours and tenderise. Get the fire going and enjoy the company of your guest as your coals get ready. The hot fire adds a smoky flavour and delicious char to the chicken.

All you need is a touch of Aegean Gold.

Serve these tasty chicken breasts on a soft bun, add some texture with green slaw and all the trimmings. Absolutely delicious!
