Fumo Frantoio Muraglia
Fumo, an Olive Oil Cold Smoked with natural woods – the Surprise of Italian EVOO.
“SOME YEARS AGO I HAPPENED TO ASK SAVINO, ALMOST IN JEST, IF HE HAD EVER CONSIDERED SMOKING OLIVE OIL. I never thought he’d take me seriously and when I was asked to taste it I was left gaping in amazement. Fumo has something which enhances the taste of meat just grilled or griddled and a drop of this olive oil is magical on a small ricotta as well as on fatty fish, without raising doubts about the product’s quality and the cooking method. Since today’s express cookery demands ingredients that are fresh, lively, maybe even rough and ready but quick to prepare, smoked olive oil turns meat into a “magically” grilled and tasty dish. I SERVED IT SOME TIME AGO ON A “VELLUTATA DI MELANZANE” (AUBERGINE CREAM) AND IT WAS GREAT FUN WATCHING THE CUSTOMER TRYING TO UNDERSTAND HOW A “VELLUTATA” COULD BE GRILLED”.
