"It has a fruity and gentle sweet taste, but it's somewhat pungent. It's like a love affair that women envision."

"MOCO'S Kitchen Extra Virgin Olive Oil"
This olive oil is an "extra virgin olive oil" that is thoroughly focused on freshness from the selection of ingredients to bottling. In December 2012, when he traveled to Spain, the world's largest olive producing area, on location, Mokomichi Hayami met organically grown olives made by the Luce family, who have been running olive farms for six generations in the Andalusia region. It is said that "Albequina", which has a feminine and gentle flavor, and "Picual", which is a spicy taste of experts, are blended in a ratio of 7: 3.
In developing the product, Mr. Hayami challenged himself to blend with Catador (olive oil appraiser) from Luke Farm. He said that he was particular about "the more you use it, the more delicious it becomes," and tasted several varieties to find the ultimate taste while feeling the subtle differences in taste and aroma.
By the way, when expressing this olive oil in the "Mokomichi style" , it has a "fruity and gentle sweet taste, but somehow pungent and stimulating. It's like a love affair that a woman envisions." It's easy to match with any dish, and it's said that the more you use it, the more you like it, so you may use it as a topical "following olive oil" on a daily basis (? ).
