Palestine.... Mood = Home Grown!

Since Baity kitchen started..... Yes i know i use that line often but its true.... Since it started i got to search and research different products to sell at the deli and found some wonderful things along the way. First were the flowering teas, then came the cupcakes in a jar and the chocolate fondues. This went on and on and it just got better and better until i found a wonderful Palestinian olive oil that i could stock at my place. I have been to-ing and fro-ing about whether to stock this oil so not to upset people as we are in a very sensitive area where we have a high political view on things but seeing as i AM Palestinian i though it was only appropriate. Also since Ottolenghi's duo of Israeli and Palestinian team went down so well i thought that it would be just fine.

I am always a supporter of ALL companies that are small and family run and this has been the way since the beginning. What is the point of of supporting and stocking products that EVERYBODY has when there are better and more delicious products out there that are just waiting to be discovered.

This Olive oil is tangy a bit peppery and oh so delicious you almost want to eat it on its own.... But know that it is just not appropriate.....

I found this oil on the website of a supplier that i use for everyday products and then went to the link of the company profile itself.... Read on.

Palestine is the home of the olive tree, with some of the oldest olive groves in the world, some dating as far back as 1500 to 2000 years. The olive trees produce fruit that supports over half the population and can be seen dominating the agricultural landscape.
The Mediterranean climate, rich fertile soil and use of organic traditional farming methods, makes Zaytoun’s Palestinian olive oil a world outstanding product.
Zaytoun’s main challenge is to find a market place for Palestinian produce in the UK. We cannot do this without the support of our hundreds of distributors across the country. Zaytoun
