El Olivo Newsletter

El Olivo :: News archive

We have just launched an array of new products. As always when I introduce a new product I look for 3 things i.e. quality, presentation and a competitive price, believe me this is not always easy to achieve however I do travel and visit lots of producers and in the end I usually end up with what I am looking for. For me this year the star product is the new range of gourmet olives which at £1.99 for 300g (net weight) is a real bargain. The tins of black olives pitted and whole at £0.90 and £0.80 are also extremely good value. The 2 products that have been very well received and we have already had lots of orders for are the elegant square 250ml gift bottle of Arbequina olive oil Las 7 Encinas and the chocolate coated oranges with rum & cointreau. Please also have a look at our fantastic list of pâtés, these are perfect for hampers. "A very special product is our organic honey the producer is so passionate about it that I have decided to give you a bit more information about how his organic honey is made: "The honey comes from the Nature Reserve at O'Courel Ancares in the Eastern mountains of Galicia . The beehives are located in barely accessible places in the mountains, pristine habitats far away from conventional agriculture. The bees are not fed with sugar, the hives do not receive any chemical treatments and they stamp and use only their organic certification which guarantees complete control of the traceability of the products"

Autumn news

Organic Range / Dr Gregorio Torchia

El OLivo is now supplying products to clients of  Dr. Gregorio Torchia

Before Dr. Torchia can recommend any of my products, they have to be sent to a laboratory in London to be analysed to make sure that they  are completely natural and free of chemicals/preservatives etc. We are working together to bring an organic range of products alongside my "typical Spanish products". Available now are a new organic range of lentils, chickpeas white beans, honey and tomate frito.    

Dr Torchia  has already moved to his new consulting rooms at the Arthur Conan Doyle Centre.  He will be taking over the very elegant tea room in February. He will use his knowledge about food and diet to devise alongside his chef a menu that will be  both  innovative and  healthy.  

Charity Work

El Olivo is supporting a great local charity It’s Good 2 Give.

The charity was set up in April 2010 by Lynne and Ian McNicoll and already has raised over £650,000 for local young people with cancer and their families. Lynne says: In 2010 when Ian and I set up It’s Good 2 Give we knew we wanted to provide practical support – the snacks, parent packs, workshops, ironing vouchers, but our dream was to create a Retreat for the families – somewhere that was within reasonable distance of the Edinburgh hospitals so that those still in treatment could get back there within an hour if they needed to. That dream is longer a dream as the Ripple Retreat is expected to open by Next Autumn, They still need your help, please donate if you can, every penny counts. (Muchas gracias)

Holiday Destination

The Spanish Paradores are, luxury hotel accommodation in Castles, Palaces, Convents, Monasteries, Fortresses and other historic buildings at very competitive prices The building is often part of the heritage of Spain although there are some modern hotels in a spectacular location. Many of them are in smaller medieval towns and villages first inhabited long ago. The group is renowned for the high standard of service given to guests while the prices are lower than expected especially if you take advantage of the many promotional offers .

Parador the Lerma - Lerma

This parador is in the province of Burgos. It is a 2 hour drive north from Madrid, a perfect place for a long weekend or for New Year. They have amazing packages for New Year (well for Christmas too), which includes El Cotillon. This means that apart from your fabulous dinner and dance you get a goodies bag with items to dress up plus the 12 grapes ( In Spain everyone has the grapes at midnight, you are meant to have one with each strike of the clock and the challenge is by the 12th you mouth must be empty, I have only achieved this once!)

We are moving Office

As the majority of you already know Ian had a heart attack on the 13th of December. He has recovered and he is doing well but he will not be coming back to EL Olivo. Sales are now being split between my-self and John although it has been mainly John doing it for the last few months .That may continue this way as I develop other areas of the business (more of this later). John's wife Joan comes in a couple of times a week to help with administration. We are also moving premises, after over 5 years at our current offices we have decided to move to The Arthur Conan Doyle Centre in the West End of Edinburgh. This is a stunning building where a lot of activities take place and is much easier for our retail customers to find us. Our warehouse will remain in Glasgow.

Three Recipes with Olive Oil

There are many ways you can use olive oil in your meals and it doesn’t always have to be as a dressing or a dip on the side. When you opt to buy olive oil online from us you should make the most of its quality and taste by incorporating it into a wider range of meals. Below are three exquisite recipes which work wonderfully with any of our extra virgin olive oils.

Classic Spaghetti with Olive Oil, Chilli and Garlic
A classic Italian meal which you can enjoy using an olive oil of your choice.
Ingredients
400g spaghetti
200ml extra virgin olive oil
3-4 garlic cloves, crushed or finely chopped
1-2 red chillis, finely chopped
Salt and pepper for seasoning
Flat leaf parsley for garnish
Method
1. Cook your spaghetti to your preferred consistency in salted boiling water
2. Heat your olive oil in a frying pan and add garlic, allowing it to fry for 1-2 minutes, spreading the flavour amongst the oil.
3. Add two tablespoons of water to the pan and then mix in the fresh chilli. Season well and continue to stir and cook for 3-4 minutes.
4. Once the spaghetti cooked drain it quickly and whilst still wet add it to the olive oil sauce, tossing it to coat it entirely in the sauce. Finish with your chopped parsley.

Spanish Squid with Lemon, Garlic and Olive Oil
Imagine you’re sat on a Spanish terrace, tucking into this zesty and fresh creation.
Ingredients
500g prepared squid
1 large lemon, juice and zest
3-4 garlic cloves, crushed or finely chopped
75ml of extra virgin olive oil
Salt and pepper for seasoning
Extra lemon wedges to servce
Method
1. Squeeze lemon juice over the prepared squid including the tentacles and leave it for 5 minutes to settle. Drain any excess liquid as the squid will have absorbed the majority of the juice.
2. Heat the olive oil in a frying pan and add in the garlic and the zest of the lemon, slowing cooking it and increasing the heat gradually. When it is very hot add in the squid and fry in the hot oil, moving it slowly around the pan to ensure it only takes on a little cover. It should take no longer than 2 minutes to cook.
3. Season the squid and serve straight away from the pan with lemon wedges available for an extra refreshing twist. You could add a green salad or pitta breads on the side for something extra.

Chocolate and Olive Oil Mousse with Sea Salt
Adding olive oil to your desserts adds a rich and velvety texture you’ll soon learn you can’t live without.
Ingredients
200g 70%+ cocoa solids chocolate, broken into small pieces
80g of caster sugar
125ml extra virgin olive oil, plus a little extra for serving
2 tablespoons of brandy
5 large eggs, separated
Sea salt to serve
Method
1. Melt the chocolate over a pan of simmering water, stirring to ensure a thick, smooth paste. Then leave it aside to cool a little.
2. Stir 30g of sugar into the five separated egg yolks and add this slowly into the chocolate, mixing it together.
3. Slowly and steadily add the olive oil and then mix in the brandy.
4. Beat three egg whites together with the sea salt to create soft peaks, finally adding in the remaining 50g of sugar until the mixture is glossy.
5. Fold the whites into your chocolate mixture until all white streaks have disappeared.
6. Separate the mixture into ramekins or serving pots and then place into the fridge to chill
7. After 20 minutes they should be set and ready to serve, simply top with a little extra olive oil and some sea salt to taste.

New Andalusian Gazpacho

New product 2009

NEW FOR 2009, Gazpacho Andaluz in a carton, it does not require refrigeration!

Andalusian Gazpacho has been for centuries a staple ingredient of the Mediterranean diet. Highly aromatic and full bodied with a light orange colour, it is made in a mortar with tomato bread, extra virgin olive oil, vinegar, salt, garlic, cucumber and pepper. Thanks to these ingredients it is a food very rich in vitamins, vegetable fibre, oleic acid and mineral salts. It is a natural part of a balanced and healthy diet.

Our gazpacho is made in the heart of the Guadalquivir valle, the home of the gazpacho, using the best traditional recipe of Andalusian gazpacho. The result is a product that the finest palates will be unable to distinguish from gazpacho made at home.

HEALTH BENEFITS

According to a recent study by the Agriculture Research Service of the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) consuming gazpacho significantly increases the amount of vitamin C in the blood while reducing molecules linked to stress and illness. The level of vitamin C in volunteers who consumed gazpacho were found to have increased by 22% in the case of women and 27% in the case of men and the levels of uric acid and other stress molecules in the study group were significantly reduced.

Tomato, the main ingredient of Gazpacho, is an outstanding source of lycopene, a powerful antioxidant linked to lower risk of heart disease, macular degeneration and several types of cancer such as those of the prostate, lung, stomach and bladder. When tomatoes are heated the lycopone turns into a form that it is more bio-active and easily assimilated by the body, this is why consuming products that contains "cooked" tomato is internationally recommended.

Our gazpacho is made using the best and latest methods that allow the product to be processed gently while guaranteeing a longer shelf life. The result is what we believe is the best gazpacho in the market with a taste fit for the most demanding gourmets. TRY IT AND LEARN THE TRUTH ABOUT GAZPACHO!!!
