Our Best Extra Virgin Olive Oil Recipes

Spicy Chicken with Sweet Potato Wedges and Sauteed Greens

Spicy Chicken with Sweet Potato Wedges and Sauteed Greens

The Governor is classified as a robust extra virgin olive oil. This means it has a bold flavour, a balanced bitterness, and a very prominent peppery finish. It complements spicy dishes wonderfully adding extra depth and flavour. 

The peppery taste is actually a very important indicator of a high quality olive oil. It is the sign of the presence of polyphenols in particular Oleocanthal, which has unique anti-inflammatory properties that act in the same way as Ibuprofen.
