EVOO & food pairing ideas

Have you ever imagined that the olive cultivars for crafting EVOO are more than 1200? And each one is carrying its very unique DNA with authentic expression of Fruitiness, Bitterness and Pungency? So much similar to the world of wine and its rich biodiversity!

In “Sun & Olive Oil – stories and recipes about fascinating flavours of the Mediterranean” Anna created a mapping with 3 EVOO profiles to inspire and guide you when cooking at home – Sunny olive oils, Golden center olive oils and olive oils Beyond.

Sunny olive oils

with delicate fruitiness and pungency

Golden center olive oils

with medium fruitiness and pungency

Olive oils Beyond

with intensive fruitiness and pungency, often with well-expressed harmony, complexity and persistence

Now that you have this guide at hand, EVOO and food pairing will be easy and turn into discovery, creativity and ultimate delight for the senses.

Let’s share many flavour journeys together!

MPO comes to your home

Sometimes there is nothing more precious than someone to surprise you, and inspire you while cooking a lunch or dinner for your family and friends, sharing some tips about the preparation of the dishes, having a tasting session of a selection of high quality distinct EVOOs, and experimenting with their pairing with the food.

Cooking together is even more fun if you and your friends love to discover, learn and experience the magical flow of food creation.

My Pure Olive and Anna will design a tailormade Mediterranean menu aligned with your taste preferences or surprise you by setting together a broader thematic frame, e.g. Citrus joy, Winter flavours, Spring greens, Little bites, The yellow of summer, etc.

Our speciality is to always bring on stage seasonal products, their flavours and wholesomeness, and make them shine with curious flavour combinations and elaborated EVOO pairings. 3 special EVOOs and a 3 course menu* to explore and delight in!

 

*Anna’s recipes are nonmeat and take you in the world of Nature’s biodiversity: veggies, greens, herbs, spices, nuts, legumes, grains, cheese & yogurt, fish. #MedDiet – what else?!
