Why You Should Cook with EVOO this Holiday
If you choose to stay at home and celebrate the festivities with friends and family, why not try out a couple of easy recipes using one of Absa’s Top Ten award-winning Extra Virgin Olive Oils, for baking, roasting, and even on ice cream.
Dare to be different with EVOO combinations
The best flavour combinations are obtained when using the most appropriate style of oil with a particular food. Different aromas and flavours can enhance a multitude of dishes. The more intensely flavoured foods are best complemented with more intensely fruity oil while, for a special dessert, very delicate oil will enhance the subtle flavours without dominating the dish.
You’ll be spoilt for choice with the superb quality of EVOOs from the selected winning olive farms announced at the awards, showcasing the best ten oils from the 2022 harvest.
Grab a couple of bottles of EVOO to fill the Christmas stockings or take a bottle along to one of your social engagements over the festive period. You’ll be the flavour of the month.
Always look out for the SA Olive CTC seal on a bottle of Extra Virgin Olive Oil. This is a seal of confidence and it’s the guarantee that the producer is ‘committed to compliance’ in producing quality extra virgin olive oil. It confirms that the EVOO is 100% locally (South African) produced and is authentic EVOO.
