When I was a child, farmers would keep olive oil under lock and key

Maurizio Maggiani

When I was a young lad, I remember that farmers – not the landowners, mind you, but the labourers working on the farms – would keep their bottle of oil under lock and key, and on the few occasions when they would take it out, they would handle it with the same care that a priest has when administering the last rites. Nowadays, like never before, when I look at the shelves along the supermarket aisles, with their vast array of extra virgin olive oils on display, I realize how much things have changed in just a few decades.

Ravioli with Garda extra virgin olive oil stuffing and black olive charcoals

Extra Virgin Garda DOP olive oil’s distinctive traits are its naturally delicate flavor and its elegance. At the taste it can be recognized for harmony or its organoleptic notes and for the light and balanced aromas: the scents of fresh grass, aromatic herbs, hay and artichoke, together with the typical almond aftertaste, make it unique. Recipe by chef Carlo Bresciani
