Elevate Your Cooking with Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Tantalise your taste buds and transform your culinary creations with liquid gold, extra virgin olive oil (EVOO).

Almost all recipes start with a tablespoon or two of olive oil, the essential, central ingredient of Mediterranean cooking. EVOO is always the starting point of something delicious. 


With so many oils are on the market, so why should you choose extra virgin olive oil for your culinary adventures? 

Simple - it's your ticket to unparalleled taste and health. EVOO unlike other oils boasts a distinct flavour profile, adding depth and character to dishes. It's a flavouring all in itself, it's fruity, peppery, complex and rich all at the same time. It's extremely versatile and can be used for everything from homemade salad dressingsmarinades for meat and fish, pestos and sauces to roasted or sautéed vegetablesdeliciously moist cakes and bread.

Beyond the palate, it's a health-conscious choice, loaded with unique antioxidants, polyphenols, and healthy fats that your body needs for nourishing your physical and mental wellbeing. 

Don't settle for mediocre cooking oils that are inflammatory to our health; choose extra virgin olive oil. EVOO is an unrefined oil, meaning it is completely unprocessed. It retains all of its healthy phenolic compounds, unlike other refined cooking oils which have been heat and chemically treated to remove impurities and contaminants and leave it devoid of healthful compounds and flavour.

Its high antioxidant phenolic content sets EVOO apart from other cooking oils. These unique polyphenols are directly related to the oil's stability when heated. They help to protect the oil from oxidation and turning rancid. The polyphenols increase the smoke point of EVOO to temperatures around 190c and up to 230c for high phenolic extra virgin olive oil such as the Governor meaning that it's perfectly fine to cook with. These temperatures cover all methods of home cooking, everything from sauteing, oven roasting and even deep frying.

So let the Governor guide you on a culinary journey that will help elevate your dishes, indulge your taste buds, and embrace a healthier lifestyle. The proof is in the pudding they say, once you start to cook with Extra Virgin Olive Oil you will notice the difference in the taste and your health.
