Kick-start your New Year diet – win a luxury Marruchetone olive oil duo


London: Elixir has joined with Wine & Food Promotions to offer six readers the chance to win one of Marruchetone Extra Virgin olive oil’s special gift packs.

Each set is worth £25 and contains two bottles of oil – one 250 ml bottle of Armonia type oil which is mellow and made from the Fantuio olive and a 250 ml bottle of Brio from the Leccino which produces a more intense flavour.

This is a very special and unique olive oil pressed from olives grown on the Fattoria Varramista, a farm on the estate of one of the favourite homes of the Agnelli family, near the village of Capalbio, Maremma, Tuscany and was pressed after the autumn 2009 harvest. It is extra virgin and grown organically.

It is suggested that the Armonia (mellow tasting) is used for Vegetables, fish, soups, meats, pastas (just a drop) and the Brio (intense) for salads, on carpaccio and meats. Or why not try dipping some rustic bread into the oil to taste all the wonderful flavours?

Medical experts agree that olive oil is one of the healthiest oils, complementing and enhancing the beneficial nutrients in the vegetables and other ingredients of the Mediterranean Diet. So why not kick off your New Year health resolutions by sampling this wonderful and unique oil?
