In a nutshell: Olive oil infused with the herb savory and made with love by nuns in the South of France.
This intense, and earthy, aromatised oil is made with that wonderful herb savory. It works well with any pulse or bean dish added after cooking. It’s also great with mushrooms, pan-fried chicken, grilled meats and is sublime drizzled over a warm potato and onion salad.
