Olive Oil Info

The following are excerpts from the book “The secret of good health, OLIVE OIL”, by Nikos and Maria Psilakis. The authors have most generously agreed to share with us the vast knowledge and results of their extensive research of olive oil, olives, the Mediterranean diet and particularly the Cretan diet.

For a more comprehensive understanding of this golden nectar and its correct use, this book provides informative and entertaining lessons for the scholar, the connoisseur, the health conscious and for those who just love good food. 

By the same authors, “Cretan Cooking – the miracle of the Cretan diet, the most wholesome cuisine in the Mediterranean”, contains wonderful recipes, information on the ingredients, tidbits of historical and medical facts and many beautiful photographs by Nikos Psilakis.
