Philippos Hellenic Goods proposes the Premium Gourmet Box which includes 4 packs of 95 g. The olive tree of Kalamata, Olea Europea Kalamon, is a former cultivar of Kalamata, a strong olive producing area in the Gulf of Messinia, Peloponnese, and has widely spread today to the neighbouring regions. The characteristics of the fruit, the dark purple colour, and the tasty, juicy flesh, make Kalamon the ideal table olives. The olive may be served as an aperitif and is a nutritious snack, enriching salads, and giving a Mediterranean, summer touch to sauces; they also are an essential ingredient in many recipes. Philippos Hellenic Goods offers its olives preserved in Extra Virgin Olive Oil. This is not a detail. Once collected and washed to "debitter", the olives are preserved in salt water. Only later will they be packed in brine or oil. They will remain there until they are ready to be served. The choice of using Extra Virgin Olive Oil makes the product slightly more expensive but ensures the preservation of all its organoleptic properties: intense dark, shiny colour entices tasting; biting the firm texture releases all the flavour of the fruit and a delicate hint of bitterness. PHILIPPOS HELLENIC GOODS Kalamata Olives easily appeals to connoisseurs and amateurs alike, who enjoy the full raw Mediterranean flavours. The vacuum packaging preserves the quality over time. The 95 g sachet ensures prompt use of the product once opened; olives can thus be appreciated in all their fragrance. Olives have a nutritional value similar to that of Extra Virgin Olive Oil. They are rich in fatty acids and antioxidants that have a positive effect on cholesterol metabolism and also prevent cardiovascular disease. All Philippos Premium products including Kalamata Olives, Extra Virgin Olive Oil and Aegina Pistachios in their Premium Gourmet Box, fit perfectly into our Premium Gift Box
Fleur de sel
100ml Raw fleur de sel Origin: Messolonghi Messolonghi is in the west continental part of Greece. It is a large lagoon now a national park, one of the most important for biodiversity in the Mediterranean area. The area is also home to a vast salt mine producing quality salt. When the water evaporates from the surface of the λακούβες – the natural salt pans by the sea – a thin crust is first formed on the surface, and dries with sun and wind. This is Fleur the Sel. It is collected by hand, using an ancient technique. It contains a significant amount of minerals and it is naturally iodized, unlike common salt which only contains sodium chloride and is chemically iodized. Fleur de Sel is important for its nutritional value, recommended for hypertension and for the correct balance of vital substances. Fleur the Sel is more than salt. Its components make it tasty, entice our taste buds and enhance the flavour. Moreover, it is appreciated from the first sprinkle for its crunchy texture just before it melts in your mouth.
