Social human action
Always socially engaged
As a social human action, we are giving for free OLIVETTE briquettes to the needy population of the Atlas Mountains where the winter time is particularly harsh. These people have the unfortunate habit of savagely taking woods from forests. This operation is done under the supervision of the Governor of one of the highest altitude regions in Morocco where mountains are about 3200 meters above sea level. 3 Kg of our OLIVETTE briquettes burns for 6 continuous hours per day in a closed oven (used to heat the house, warm the water for mint tea, and cook food for the Family). By contrast, we need 30 Kg per day of fresh wood from forests to have the same burning time. Moreover, the heating power of OLIVETTE briquettes is 6380 kcal/kg, whereas the heating power of wood is only 4000 kcal/kg.
Proud of my Italian oils I had a little reticence in trying a Moroccan oil. With my big surprise I found it really delicious. I used it raw, but I’ve to admit, it’s great for frying too. It has very hi smoke point that makes my ‘fritto misto’ lovely golden and crunchy. I highly recommend it!

I bought this oil as I was attracted by its elegant and unusual bottle. Such a precious container had to contain a very special product and I was right! The bottle on your table is a pleasure for your eyes and when you pour it, pervasive perfumes invites your dining companions to taste it and they feel privileged to savor such a rare nectar. My guests are special and I love being a perfect gracious hostess.
I discovered this great oil when looking for a good oil for my olive oil ice cream. It resulted to be the best one. Now I use it as a topping to add savory complexity to many of my sweet treats. Delicious!
