1)ORGANIC EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL (ASTROS, ARKADIA)
Oilove is an organic extra virgin olive oil produced with love, care and dedication. It comes from the olive tree varieties of Megaritiki, Manaki and Koroneiki. It is produced in a fully-organic farming environment according to the European Union legislation and by using the cold extraction method in order to maintain the beneficial properties of olives. The olive trees are grown in the plain of Astros Arkadia, as well as on hilly areas leading to mount Parnon. Its colour is yellowish-golden and it has a sweet taste, a sensation of smoothness and great aroma. Because of its superior taste, many people prefer to enjoy it raw on salads, but it is actually just as good for cooking.
2)ORGANIC LEMON BALM (THESSALONIKI)
Lemon Balm was dedicated to the goddess Diana (Artemis, in Greece), and has been used medicinally since the ancient times. It was used to soothe tension, to dress wounds, and as a cure for toothache, skin eruptions, crooked necks, and sickness during pregnancy. It was even said to prevent baldness. As a medicinal plant, lemon balm has traditionally been employed against bronchial inflammation, earache, fever, flatulence, headaches, high blood pressure, influenza, mood disorders, palpitations, toothache and vomiting. A tea made from lemon balm leaves is said to soothe menstrual cramps.
3)DRIED PORCINI MUSHROOM RISOTTO (GIANNITSA)
High quality rice from the fields of Northern Greece, dried porcini mushrooms, parsley and onion: in a small box we closed all the necessary ingredients for a delicious risotto, which can be ready in little time. An easy meal for those who love great tastes but don’t want to spend a lot of time in the kitchen. Or simply an ideal solution for when you have sudden visitors at home, for when you come home tired after a full day and you want something healthy, quick and tasteful.
4)MARMALADE FROM LEMONS AND LIMES WITH BROWN SUGAR (LARISA)
A slightly bitter, fragrant marmalade made with Greek lemons and limes complete with the rinds, coarsely cut and boiled in raw sugar. You can use it to accompany fried saganaki cheese or dilute it with fresh lemon juice to marinate meats. And of course, it is also perfect for breakfast.
5)Olive paste & whole grain rye Croutons (CRETE)
These croutons are based on extra virgin olive oil according to Cretan – Mediterranean dietary standards. They were created by carrying on the tradition of combining wheat and rye grinded in stone mills to maintain their dietary fibre, which serves as a protective shield to the human body. By adding soft olive paste made of original PDO Kalamata olives we created a spicy suggestion for salads and every special dish of the Mediterranean cuisine. Double – Baked, not fried.
