New Olive Oil   今年のオリーブオイル☆





The photos are the new season olive oil (extra virgin, of course) produced by the olive oil mill our friends in Umbria takes their olives to. The colour is incredibly beautiful green and I know it also tastes green and spicy. We have a bottle of it that our friend generously gave to us.

On the day we drive from Umbria to Rome (so we can sleep overnight at the airport hotel at Rome to take an early morning flight to London), we were invited to an event of Olive Harvest Festival at another olive oil mill (our friends' friend's) and spent a few hours amongst the local people. We felt very privileged to such an opportunity and enjoyed ourselves. It was such a special time for us. I'll blog more about it later.
