BellaTerra sell 100% natural olive oil, grown on the mineral-rich volcanic slopes of Mount Etna. Since launching in March and despite the challenges of coronavirus, their oils have taken London by storm and are now stocked in 40 high quality food retailers in the capital.
Locally you’ll find them at Greens of Highgate and Limone Fine Foods, both in Highgate, Bournes Fish, Budgens and Black Truffle Deli, all in Belsize Park, Organico in West Hampstead and at Jonathan Norris Fishmonger in Tufnell Park.
BellaTerra was conceived by Gianluca, who is Sicilian born and raised, and David, an Australian with a long affection for Italy, who are both now living here. They share a common passion for sourcing the finest ingredients from carefully selected artisanal producers, taking great pride in what they do.
“During this pandemic, when we are forced to get more creative in the kitchen, we all need special ingredients to give our dishes a touch of quality and flavour,” says David. “We’ve been overwhelmed by the reception from Camden residents, so during this second lockdown we wanted to provide Camdenist readers with a special offer on our flavoured oil gift boxes – ideal gifts for Christmas.”
The stunning gift box presentation contains three different flavour varieties: the freshest Sicilian basil, chilli & garlic and lemons, each pressed together with olives to deliver a truly unique tasting experience.
The COVID-19 health crisis has burned our economic and cultural landscape much like a forest fire. But across a charred, razed environment, strong green shoots inevitably emerge.
CAMDENIST is a new collaborative local media platform, currently in beta mode and launching soon. Born from the smoldering ashes of this unprecedented era, it will provide fertile support for the regeneration of our communities, businesses and cultural spaces in the times ahead.
