Dolce Vita Diaries - The Story of Nudo Olive Oil
We here at the Green Connoisseur are big fans of Nudo Olive Oil. There's just so much to like about the business, from its delicious flavors to its innovative production model. Recently, founder Jason Biggs got in touch to remind us of an exciting development that's taken place since they were featured on the website - they've published a book! The Dolce Vita Diaries, by Jason and co-founder Cathy Rogers, describes their adventures as they left careers in London to start an olive farm in Italy: "It's a very funny, deliciously different foodie travelogue about the trials and tribulations of setting up a olive oil business in rural Italy. It's a warts-and-all account of what it's really like to throw it all in, follow your dream and end up in the middle of a European nowhere untouched by modernity. At the end of each chapter are delicious recipes which we used along the way." I haven't seen the book yet, but it sounds like a great summer read. The recipes in particular should come in handy for anyone who's expecting a shipment of oil from an adopted olive tree!
