I love it so much, I have recently partnered with them to do a quarterly post endorsing their Olive Oils. This is a food bloggers dream to have such an amazing package of high end olive oil delivered to your door!
With Pomora, you adopt an olive tree from their beautiful Olive Groves in Italy. You will then receive an Adoption Pack with a certificate showing your tree and a booklet of information about your tree. Quarterly you will receive a shipment of 3x250ml tins of oil from your tree alternating between gourmet selection of a plain oil quarter and a flavored oil quarter. Pretty cool? Yes?
This quarter I received their Olio D’Oliva Extra Vergine a.k.a. “Extra Virgin Olive Oil.”
After the last shipment I received, I couldn’t wait to open the can. Their Extra Virgin Olive Oil is dense and thick with a beautiful deep yellow color. It has a soft earthy smell. And the taste…. It is flavorful with a soft spicy bite at the end. It really is a bit of Gourmet HEAVEN!!!! I can honestly say Pomora’s Olive Oils have been the best olive oils I have tasted…. and I have tasted many types of olive oil.
Because I have teamed up with Pomora, they are giving away a set to one of my lucky readers!!!! One lucky will have an opportunity to have this lovely set delivered to their door all the way from Italy for free. Just sign up for the raffle here.
*UPDATE! Contest is over. Becky Heys is the winner.
With the lovely Pomora Extra Virgin Olive Oil, I created this LOVELY Watermelon, Mint, and Feta Salad. The salt, citrus, and sweet combinations make this salad INCREDIBLE. My friends looked at me crazy when I added feta, salt, and pepper to this recipe.
I told them, “Don’t knock it until you tried it.” The surprise on their face from confusion to enjoyment was entertaining. They loved this salad. I hope you will enjoy it too. It is such a pretty recipe for summer entertaining.
If you want to order a set for yourself, you can order it here.
I will be doing a post the next quarter when their new garlic, basil, and white truffle oils come out; so stay tuned and keep a look out! xoxo
