When I was a kid in the 1980s I was given a donkey for Christmas one year. No, not a real donkey , which was lucky considering that we lived in the middle of a town with a not-enormous garden. It was in fact an adopted donkey, who lived far away on a farm and who I never actually met, although I did receive a photograph, a certificate and a letter every few months. I loved that distant donkey and can still remember the thrill of receiving the letters.
Nowadays it's possible to subscribe to or adopt all kinds of things and through Nudo you can even adopt your very own olive tree. Not only that but you can enjoy the oil that is produced from your tree. Pretty cool eh?
Nudo also make a special extra virgin olive oil for children. Extra virgin olive oil contains vitamins A, D, E and K and is also a source of Omega 3, which is important for growing brains. Giving kids their very own tin of olive oil will hopefully encourage them to get involved in cooking. Miss R, who is 4 (but only for a few more weeks as she keeps reminding me!), needs no encouragement to help in the kitchen and she was delighted with her tins of Nudo kids olive oil - as was her big brother.
We use quite a lot of olive oil in our cooking, especially when making pasta sauces, but this oil can also be used in baking and for dipping. We've already used it to make a sneaky veg sauce this week and we'll be using it again on Friday to make pizza dough.
