As the autumn really sets in we only have to look to nature to know that it’s time to replenish our reserves for the winter ahead. The surrounding trees and bushes are offering us berries and nuts loaded with the antioxidants and nutrients that we need. We set aside ingredients to sustain us through the colder months either by drying or preserving. Refilling, restoring, reserving all in anticipation of cold weather ahead when there is less access to fresh produce.
With the drop in temperature, we all lean towards more comforting food such as soups, slow cooked dishes, grains, pulses, root vegetables as we seek to be nourished. Eating what is in season can be deeply rewarding from a nutritional and sensory perspective as well as having massive environmental benefits.
To accompany you on this journey towards winter, the arrival of the new harvest of Extra Virgin Olive Oil neatly coincides. The intense level of polyphenols found in our oils when they are just pressed offers an incredible support to our immune systems over the winter. It is also hugely beneficial for your skin, nails and hair that so readily lose their gloss during the winter months.
This is why we offer our olive oil selection just once a year, when the harvest is underway and in order to deliver it to you when it is at its most intense and vibrant in every way. We want you to receive all of this goodness to replenish your reserves for the winter ahead.
