Last Saturday morning was sunny and beautiful. We decided to take advantage of the weather and walk down to the Dejvice farmer’s market and see if the selection of food on offer had improved since Mrs. NH’s visit a year or so ago. Suffice to say, it has.
There were beautiful spring flowers, an assortment of international meats and cheeses, seafood, and even fresh pasta. In one booth there was a friendly Czech/Spanish couple selling their olive oil from Andalusia. Anyone who reads this blog knows that I’m a sucker for anything from Spain. I tried their olives and both their filtered and unfiltered oils and fell in love. We bought a bottle and proceeded to buy some fresh bread at the store and dip to our hearts content. We have about 5 bottles of olive oil from all over Europe in our kitchen and this one certainly stands out as one of the tastiest. It’s rich and green in flavor with just a hint on spice on the finish.
It’s nice to have a good olive oil that we don’t have to ration. If we run out we can always walk back to get more next weekend!
