Episode 742 Marc Millon interviews Natalia Ravidà, in this episode of Italian Food & Wine with Marc Millon on the Italian Wine Podcast.
About today’s guest:
With an established career in journalism based in London, in 1991 Natalia Ravidà began promoting RAVIDA Extra Virgin Olive Oil around the world. As the business picked up and the oils won world recognition ‘best olive oil in the world’, she left journalism to work full time in the family business in Sicily.
A love for food inherited from her family was at the source of her quest to record her favorite Sicilian dishes in Seasons of Sicily highlighting daily use of extra virgin olive oil in everyday Mediterranean cooking.
RAVIDA olive oils are a small family run business based in Menfi, south west Sicily. The range includes Extra Virgin Olive oils and 2020 Great Taste Award winning lemon and Mandarin olive oils. A Vinegar and a range of sea salts.
RAVIDA is available in selected stores around the world including Harrods, Waitrose, Selfridges in the Uk, Williams Sonoma in the US, Isetan in Japan, City Super in Hong Kong.
It is a medium grassy olive poil produced to high standards from a natural blend of Biancolilla, Cerasuola and Nocellara olives.
