For Market Monday today, we are highlighting Lakonia Imports. They produce delicious, high quality Greek olive oil. Peter Marules and his cousin started Lakonia in 2018 to share their delicious olive oil and other greek imports with the world. Their family has been farming and making olive oil in Greece since 1998.
They truly have some of the best olive oil I have tasted! If you have never had truly good olive oil, you are missing out SO much! Even when you go to the “nice” Italian restaurant, you are rarely getting true quality olive oil. There has actually been some major issues with big brands blending olive oil with cheap oil to cut the cost. If you are taste it, you will know the difference, though, that’s for sure!
Good olive oil has a beautiful, rich spiciness and fruitiness to it. It brings delicious pungency to anything made with it. You can also taste the olive variety and growing region in the individual oils. The oil Lakonia sells is great for multipurpose use and all your cooking and dressing needs. You can buy their products online or at the farmer’s market. We get their 3L tin which is the best value and that lasts us about 2 months. Whether you’re vegan, keto, or anything in between, high quality olive oil is something we can all benefit from. I highly recommend checking out Lakonia Imports for their olive oil!
As a side note – if you buy their 3L tin, it is the same price per oz as a 16.9 oz bottle from Aldi. That is a smashing deal! Bulk buying will always be cheaper but it rarely works out that well. Just another reason to check out Lakonia!
What’s your favorite way to use olive oil? Let us know below! We like it for roasting cauliflower or dipping bread.
Make it a tasty week,
