Tasting the Olive

an ancient tree for the modern world

"The discovery of a new dish will confer more happiness on mankind than the discovery of a new star". Jean Brillat-Savarin

In this booklet you will discover several new dishes from the 4 gifts of the olive tree. I love experimenting with the flower, the fruit, the oil and the leaf. With nearly 50 recipes I show how easy it can be to include these cleansing, healing, nutritious and revitalising products as part of our lives- for the fun of it, for the delicious tastes and for the high nutritional and medicinal value they offer. From Olive Flower Champagne, to Greek Olive Spoon Sweets, to Strawberry, Coconut & Olive Oil Ice cream to Olive Liqueur. I also introduce the olive leaf as an exciting new culinary ingredient. Frappelia, the blended fresh leaf, Olive Tea, the dried leaf, and Olepha, the powdered leaf. A unique, full flavoured, anti-oxidant-rich tonic to support today's busy lifestyle. Bon appetit


All Elaia products are handmade in small batches in my registered kitchen which looks out over our olive grove.
