When we did an olive oils roundup a while back, we didn't include any Greek varieties.
That's because we had not yet discovered Golden Olive Eleni organic extra virgin olive oil. This is a truly superior product, with a nice, light, almost nutty flavour, and excellent cooking qualities.
We also tried it drizzled lightly on salad and it passed the subtlety test that way, too.
The new crop is now in and limited quantities of this olive oil are available in stores in Vancouver, Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam, Port Moody, Deep Cove, Whistler, Langley, Ladner, Maple Ridge, Surrey and Victoria.
