Olive Oils & Spices

At Cooking Vacations we make our own extra virgin, first cold pressed olive oil from precious olives that have been tenderly cared for by our grower Signor Salvatore.  The olive grove has 600 trees that are over 100 years old growing in rich volcanic soil under warm Mediterranean sun and caressed by the salty sea wind all year long. When the olives are ripe, we pick and press them in less than 24 hours then bottle the oil immediately in limited quantities. Our oil has a very low level of oleic acid giving it more natural vitamins and minerals. It has notes of green grass, almond and artichoke. We also produce lemon, chili pepper and rosemary oil, natural flavors that go well with our cuisine on the Amalfi Coast.
