For thousands of years olive oil has been prominent in all the great civilizations that have prospered in Tunisia, and the Chemlali olive in particular is prized for its high oil content. Olive cultivation in Tunisia dates back to the 8th century BCE.
This beautiful golden extra virgin olive oil has a bright, grassy aroma, with a light and smooth consistency. It has slightly woody, grassy and fruity flavors, with an intense and exciting peppery finish.
Our Chemlali extra virgin is an extremely versatile, all-purpose olive oil -- drizzle over fresh pasta or toasted artisan breads for a bruschetta or crostini; finish over grilled fish, chicken and vegetables as a means of replacing butter. As vinaigrette, pair it with our Red Apple or Raspberry Balsamic vinegars over a salad of baby spinach, gorgonzola cheese and toasted walnuts; for a lighter dressing over peppery arugula or crisp romaine, heirloom tomatoes, black olives and feta cheese, pair it with our Bergamot & Lime or Huckleberry White Balsamic vinegars.
Organic is much more than merely a label or a certification. Organic stands for quality and conviction-- for the responsible use of nature's resources.
