Overview

The healthful virtues of olive oil, a key component of the Mediterranean diet, have become well known in recent years; its monounsaturated fats and antioxidants are beneficial in preventing heart disease by controlling LDL ("bad") cholesterol levels while simultaneously raising HDL ("good") cholesterol levels.

Helen Koutalianos and her husband run Basil Olive Oil Products in Canada, which sells artisan olive oil produced on a farm in Greece that their family has owned for generations. Helen has preached the gospel of olive oil and its benefits for years; at the same time, consumers across North America have become more sophisticated and appreciative of flavorful, boutique olive oils that are not mass produced. In this charming, intimate cookbook, Helen and her daughter Anastasia have collected 150 delectable, Mediterranean-inspired recipes (Greek and beyond) in which olive oil is a central ingredient; these include Olive Oil Poached Lamb, Quail with Olives, Turkish Kebab with Garlic, Shrimp and Feta Casserole, Octopus in Wine Sauce, Seared Scallop and Prawn Gazpacho, Artichokes with Lemon, and Kolokithakia Yemista (Stuffed Zucchinis with Lemon Egg Sauce).

The book also takes readers through the artisan olive oil–making process, from cultivating and processing the fruit to the production of the oil itself. Complemented with full-color photographs of recipes as well as photos of the olive farm in Greece, From the Olive Grove will seduce and inspire readers to create their own delicious, heart-healthy meals at home.
