The Winner of the Nudo Extra Virgin Olive Oil with Cocoa Nibs


A big CONGRATS to Heather, who has been a reader of this blog for a long time! I am sure she will enjoy this wonderful product with her family and friends!! 

I have had the pleasure of trying Nudo Italia's latest limited edition Extra Virgin Olive Oil with Ground Cocoa Nibs. As you know, Olive Oil is very healthy for you, and it can be used in a variety of recipes. 

Nudo is a family-run co-op between 15 small olive producers in the Marche region of Italy. Best known for it's unique adopt-an-olive-tree program and superior first cold-pressed extra virgin olive oil, Nudo also offers a wide range of artisanal Italian products and hand-crafted flavored olive oils. 

Here is some information on this limited edition extra virgin olive oil: 

Friend and award winning patissier, Will Torrent, asked whether we could make him a chocolate olive oil, we looked at him in a funny way. It's usually our job to suggest crazy olive oil experiments.
But Will was ahead of us on this one and we decided to humour him. We crushed chocolate nibs together with our olives, and then drizzled the oil on some strawberries. Wow. We don't look at Will in a funny way anymore.

This is a truly unique olive oil; we take raw cocoa nibs and freshly picked olives and crush them together in the olive press. This method is known as the ‘agrumato’ method and is the optimal means of really blending together the flavours. It is also the method used for all Nudo's flavoured olive oils, from garlic to lemon to basil.

The olives are hand harvested in small groves around Loro Piceno in Le Marche on the east coast of Italy. The raw cocoa beans come predominately from West Africa.

Nudo has produced a very limited quantity of this special oil, available only online. You can still order your own tin HERE at the Nudo website.
