Just a few words to thank the Chef’s who have shared a recipe where Extra Virgin Olive Oil is the key ingredient to enhance the dish. We have talked to Producers who share their experiences as they work hard to produce an excellent Extra Virgin Olive Oil. We have spent time with Buyers and ‘Branding’ experts who have shown us the need to bring a unique ‘narrative’ to our products, so it stands out. We have demystified the Science around Polyphenols, Free Fatty Acids, Antioxidants, and Free Radicals in the hope that it will give our community the tools to enable it to share the reasons why we should be using Extra Virgin Olive Oil every day!

It's all about the oil, Brenda.
Brenda Wilkinson has lived in Central Africa from 1990. “I look around at the ‘emptiness’ of consumerism and that fast life and am almost happy that global 'lock-down' stopped us in our tracks for a while to reflect.” Brenda was born in South Africa, trained as a teacher and after school, met and married her husband Nick, and produced two beautiful daughters. Brenda and Nick bought the olive estate RIO LARGO in 2010 knowing very little about what was ahead of them. Brenda soon became involved in the marketing of the Extra Virgin Olive Oil Nick so passionately produced. Starting from scratch, Brenda has built a brand in ten years with sales that continue to grow in local and international markets, with authenticity and hard work! “Make every moment and every cent count… spend your money and your time wisely.” To contact Rio Largo please use the links below. https://instagram.com/riolargooliveestate?igshid=11hqklqqe909c https://www.facebook.com/riolargooliveestate www.riolargo.co.za

An Antidote to fear - a Poem
In Praise of Soft Light I like soft light best, candles and moonlight. Such light always overlooks a blemish to highlight the deeper beauty- the sparkle in one's eye, the glow of a fire, the contours of the night. It's not concerned with getting to some final truth, but instead, naturally gregarious, invites us to talk of our dreams, our aspirations, indeed anything, usually over a glass of burgundy, by a gentle fire, facing out to the stars. And it doesn't care if we get a little drunk, stretch the truth, or even cry. It always tells us to just get it off our chest, and whatever dark truth we reveal, it always pats us on the back and forgives us in the end. But I sympathize, too, with those who gravitate toward the sun. who revel in the bright light of truth and assert that they will leave no stone unturned regardless of the consequence. They are, I know, motivated by high ideals. I see them working tirelessly in their labs, universities, and hospitals. They seem to me spelunkers of the underworld, bringing previously unknown marvels to light. And they are brave and beautiful in their way, but I fear them, too. They remind me too much of Oedipus whose relentless search for truth led to his own destruction. . Like many, I fear the darkness, but I'm fascinated by it, too. I love driving fast at night, or walking underneath the stars, and sometimes I challenge myself to walk across a room in utter darkness, though I often hurt myself as a result. "How could I be so stupid! " I say, but later, upon reflection, I try again, and I can't help feeling that such endeavors, as insignificant as they seem, are important. Like yin/yang, good/bad, truth/deception, we need them all, and they are all my friends. And though I fear and dread them a little, I also admire those brave souls who explore the darkness, nearly as much as those who seek the light. Perhaps, in the end, it is only a matter of temperament, but I've been hurt too many times by truth to love it overmuch, and the darkness has proven too dangerous to be more than a passing friend. On the other hand, when I consider my life, my happiest times have usually involved moonlight, candles, a crackling fire, sunrise, or dusk, and such light has always suggested that kindness and forgiveness are best, and so I will always praise soft light and try to heed its gentle lessons. A Poem by Richard Randolph

An Antidote to fear - a short meditation
An antidote to fear - A Short Meditation Take into account. That great love and great achievement involve great risk. When you lose, don't lose the lesson. Follow the three R's. Respect for self. Respect for others. Responsibility for all your actions. Remember that not getting what you want is sometimes a wonderful stroke of luck. Learn the rules. So you know how to break them properly. Don't let a little dispute ruin a great friendship. When you realize you've made a mistake. Take immediate steps to put it right. Spend some time alone every day. Open your arms to change, but don't let go of your values. Remember that silence is sometimes the best answer. Live a good honorable life. When the time comes to reflect on this. You'll enjoy it a second time. A loving atmosphere in your home is a foundation of your life. In disagreements with loved ones deal only with the current situation. Don't bring up the past. Share your knowledge. It's a way to achieve immortality. Be gentle with the earth and respectful of the seas and the rivers. Once a year go somewhere. You've never been before. The best relationship is the one in which your love for each other exceeds the need for each other. Judge your success by what you had to give up, in order to get it. Approach love and cooking with the same reckless abandon. Love as if you've never been hurt.

An Antidote to Fear - Yvette Jordaan
Yvette Jordaan - Photographer About me I love life..... I believe there is light in everyone and light in everything. It is this light that I search for when capturing moments. I see the light falling across your brand on the front of a glass bottle, the light in the golden glow of freshly brewed product, lovely light dancing in the steam coming off a pot of delicious goodness or simply just the beauty of light streaming in through the glass window falling softly on the couch in your reception area. I marvel at Creation and look to nature for my inspiration, the striking simplicity of intricate patterns, the vividness of colour, the harmony in the wind rustling through the trees, the light dancing on the crest of a wave, the softness of the air in the early morning and the depth of striking stars at night, all touch my soul. My style of photography is very natural, yet striking. I love bringing your business and your brand to life. www.yvettejordaan.com

It's all about the oil, Giuseppe.
Giuseppe Viani is the CEO of Secolo21 farm which was established in 2009 with the aim to produce high quality organic EVO in Sicily. He has been dedicating most of his career to the quality food business, consolidating since 2007 his entrepreneurship in the Russian Federation, where he introduced a pioneering concept of real homemade Italian style gelato shops. Achieving the official European Agribusiness Manager title, enabled Giuseppe to further develop Secolo21. The first goal has been to implement organic standards in the care and cultivation of the 380, mostly secular, olive trees. As a result, this has led to obtaining the “Bio” certificate, issued by the Bioagricert certification body, as well as the IGP (Protected Geographical Indication) attestation, issued by the region of Sicily. Currently, Giuseppe is consolidating the sales & marketing strategy of Secolo21 brand, focusing on selected distributors and a demanding clientele across the world.

It's all about the oil, Caroline
This week our conversation is with Caroline Robitaille biography: From playing in her Italian grandmother’s garden with full access to her restaurant to becoming a trained Natural Chef, Caroline learned early the value of family, community and breaking bread together., and yes, always with Olive Oil present. When she was 16 her grandmother, took Caroline to meet her family in Lucca, Italy. It was at that time she fell so deeply in love with her Italian heritage. In her twenty-six years as a real estate agent, Caroline was always taking on projects that were culinary or health related. They varied from opening a cooking school to developing a holistic coaching division for a company with an international presence. After real estate she attended a Natural Chef Culinary School. The focus was on Seasonal, Organic, Unprocessed and Local foods. She then went on to receive her Olive Oil Sommelier Certificate to better understand the practical uses of cooking with olive oil and most importantly, the health benefits in EVOO. With an inherent love for teaching she took this knowledge to the public by offering classes for EVOO tastings and pairing it with healthy foods. Matched with her love for travel and a fierce desire to learn everything possible about EVOO and each producers story, she has recently visited producers during harvest time in Greece, and plans to visit the Southern Hemisphere, for the Chile and Argentina harvest next. She won’t stop there; plans are already underway for next years harvest in Southern Italy’s too! Caroline’s desire to share these experiences has moved her towards developing a Blog at Carolinerobitaille.com which will be up with more content soon. Along with an announcement (soon) for a Retreat that will take place in Greece in the Spring of 2020. You can find her on Facebook @Caroline Robitaille and Instagram @ChefCaroline.
