The cultivation of olives is estimated that has started in the Neolithic period (7000- 3500 BC), mainly in southern Crete. Olive Fruit discovered at the palace of Knossos and Arhanes, and the most striking finding is considered a bowl with olives found at the palace of Zakros, which retained their flesh for over 3500 years.
As thousands of years ago, so today the olive tree still dominates the island, covering 65% of the agricultural area including at least 35 million trees, and offers the valuable benefits not only its residents but also around the world many different ways.
Olive oil is the basis of Mediterranean food chain, which has proven to be a standard healthy diet and longevity factor. It is a rich source of vitamins, metabolic balance agent ideal composition for bone growth and high antioxidant activity.
Ladi-Erotk — PitTo Extra Virgin Olive Oil “Erotokritos” of Sitia, traveling all over the world, has won the consumer with low acidity, a fruity and harmonious taste and rich aroma. He has imprisoned the body of the microclimate of the region and the particular soil conditions. Perfect enjoyment is to taste it raw in your salad and you enhance your cooking with the flavors of Crete.
It is no coincidence that I chose as D / Director of production and quality control Bros A. Piteni SA to create the new range of products «Pitenis Premium». Using olive oil “Erotokritos” and saffron extract, and in collaboration with the team of Biologists of the company managed to increase its antioxidant properties (world patent). This new range consists of extra virgin olive oil with saffron “Pitenis”, 7 delicious salads and 3 dressings by adding this.
When the chef cooks with his soul, traditionally, always using the best raw materials, such as Extra Virgin Olive Oil of the family Papadakis is different and the flow sense of time. The slow pace of cooking causes pleasantly all those sensations that evoke other, past seasons. In foods cooked our parents and our ancestors in the Mediterranean diet. This is the kitchen I learned and cook for 20 years.
The biotic upgrade but our false liberation from traditional principles of our culture and at the same time the new outlandish lifestyle, brought about great change in the eating habits of Greeks, leading the way in the non-healthy food that cooks the … phone.
A healthy diet should become a way of life rather exceptional situation.
