The extra virgin olive oil made by the Sant Isidre Cooperative of Borges Blanques, the best in Spain according to the Torres brothers.
‘We personally have travelled all over Spain in search of the perfect oil, and after trying many, we have to say that we’ll stick with the one made by the Sant Isidre Cooperative of Borges Blanques in the Catalan county of Les Garrigues, in the province of Lleida’, affirm Javier and Sergio Torres.
Few pleasures can be compared to the pleasure of tasting a good extra virgin olive oil, our country’s liquid gold. In this case it has been Sergio and Javier, the Torres brothers, well-known chefs who have participated in culinary programmes on multiple occasions, who have put this oil from our land on the Spanish map.
According to the brothers, in an interview published recently in a nationally distributed newspaper, olive oil, especially extra virgin olive oil, is highly prized by chefs around the world for its aromatic flavour, in addition to being beneficial for our bodies due to the monounsaturated fatty acids and antioxidant compounds it contains.
In this case, the Torres brothers themselves have travelled all over Spain to find the perfect oil and after trying many, they have decided to vouch for the one made by the Sant Isidre Cooperative of Borges Blanques in the county of Les Garrigues.
The brothers assert that this oil “is capable of binding sauces much better than any other and also adds a very special flavour”.
The oil made by the Sant Isidre Cooperative of Borges Blanques, a cooperative with over 100 years of history, belongs to the Regulatory Board of the Les Garrigues Designation of Protected Origin and is produced using a careful selection of arbequina olives from the Les Garrigues area.
