Discover the Secret of Phaedra Olive Oil for Gourmet Cooking

by Top of the Hill on September 25, 2023
If you're looking for one of the best olive oils on the market, you must try Phaedra Ancient Groves Extra Virgin Olive Oil. This top-notch extra virgin olive oil has a distinct flavor profile that is truly remarkable. It's perfect for cooking, dressing salads, and marinating meats. Plus, its healthy properties make it a great addition to any meal. In this blog post, we'll explore the benefits of Phaedra Olive Oil, provide helpful usage tips, and explain what makes it the best olive oil around.

What is Phaedra extra virgin olive oil?
Made from the finest Manaki olives, this extra virgin olive oil is known for its unmatched quality and rich flavor. But what sets Phaedra apart from other olive oils on the market? It's the process of making it.

Each bottle of Phaedra extra virgin olive oil is made using a unique method that involves harvesting olives from a single tree, ensuring that only the best ones make it into each bottle. These olives are then harvested and transported to the pressing facility, where they undergo a meticulous process to extract the oil.

The olives are first cleaned to remove any debris, and then they are crushed to create a paste. This paste is then mixed and stirred to help release the oil. Next, the paste goes through a centrifuge, which separates the oil from the water and solids. The resulting oil is then filtered to remove any impurities and bottled. This unique process ensures that every drop of Phaedra premium olive oil is of the highest quality. 

What does extra-virgin olive oil mean? 
To attain the distinguished title of extra-virgin olive oil (EVOO), a rigorous assessment takes place. This evaluation involves laboratory testing to measure acidity and peroxide values, as well as a sensory examination by a panel of certified experts who conduct blind tastings. This certification procedure demands significant time and effort, contributing to the premium price point associated with extra-virgin olive oil, and setting it apart from regular olive oil.

What sets Phaedra Ancient Groves olive oil apart from other olive oils
An important aspect to consider is the controversy surrounding olive oils. Many olive oils are being adulterated with lower-quality oils, but Phaedra olive oils are not blended with any other oils. In fact, each bottle has a symbol that allows the purchaser to trace the olive oil back to the micro-grove of trees where it originated, so you can feel confident that you are getting the purest and most flavorful extra virgin olive oil (EVOO) possible.

Phaedra premium olive oil adds a touch of sophistication and flavor to any dish. Let’s explore some tips on how to make the most out of this prized olive oil.

Tips for using Phaedra premium olive oil
  1. 1.  Dipping bread: Damu mentions in the video below that this is one of his favorite ways to enjoy this olive oil. Nothing beats the simple pleasure of dipping freshly baked bread into a high-quality olive oil. Pair Phaedra with your favorite crusty bread for a delightful appetizer or snack. Damu recommends adding Pastamoré barrel-aged balsamic vinegar to the Phaedra for his "bread dipper sauce". 
  2. 2.  Drizzling: Damu also recommends slicing some ripe tomatoes, adding fresh basil and fresh mozzarella, then drizzling with Phaedra olive oil and balsamic vinegar as a finishing touch to make a Caprese salad. This Bel Gioioso mozzarella that we carry here at Top of the Hill is conveniently pre-sliced. 
  3. 3.  Dressing salads: Drizzle Phaedra olive oil over your favorite salads for a burst of flavor. Its rich and distinct taste will enhance the freshness of your greens and vegetables.

The health benefits of consuming Phaedra extra virgin olive oil
One of the key health benefits of Phaedra olive oil is its high content of monounsaturated fats, which are known for their heart-healthy properties. These fats help lower bad cholesterol levels and reduce the risk of heart disease. Additionally, Phaedra olive oil is rich in antioxidants, which help protect against oxidative stress and inflammation in the body. Phaedra olive oil also contains polyphenols, which are powerful plant compounds with numerous health benefits. These polyphenols have been shown to have anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer properties, as well as improving brain function and reducing the risk of chronic diseases.

By incorporating Phaedra Ancient Groves olive oil into your diet, you can enjoy the health benefits that come with its exceptional taste.
