Our olive oil is hand picked from green olives, pressed the same day, the press is one of the most sophisticated presses in Tuscany providing us prime quality olive oil full of goodness (vitamins, antioxidants and green aromas). We collaborate with Franco Bardi who's a renowned producer in the area of Siena.
In the theme of olive oil, I wanted to share the ingredients of the Tuscan Olive Oil Cake which is made and served daily at Dario Cecchini (the famous butcher in Panzano):
White flour (1 kg)
White sugar (1 kg)
Lots of great olive oil (!)
Raisins (soak them in grappa first)
1 organic orange chopped in really fine pieces (peel inclusive)
By the way, I don't have the exact quantities on everything so you'll have to try your way to perfection - however, these are the ingredients revealed. Violà!
