    Did you know?

    Did you know lentils need to be soaked prior to cooking? These nutritional gems have an outer shell containing anti-nutrients that our bodies find difficult to digest. Rinse them off (and boost the vitamin, mineral, protein and antioxidant levels) by soaking the lentils for at least 2-4 hours before whipping up your meal.

    Geography.

    Grown in the Grampians, Victoria. 

    Hot tip.

    Keep these on standby all year round. In summer, they can be tossed into salads. In winter, they make braised dishes much more hearty and healthy. 

    Mount Zero

    As one of the oldest olive groves in Australia, the Mount Zero olive grove has stood the test of time. Located at the base of the Grampians northernmost summit, it’s home to 6000 Spanish Manzanilla and Gordal olive trees. Mount Zero is a family-owned-and-operated business that’s committed to flavour and quality; their values are evident in every olive, every jar. Speaking of commitment, it only harvests using biodynamic farming; a natural, eco-friendly approach to farming that avoids synthetic intervention. The grove is self-sustaining — it feeds the trees directly from the soil humus rather than chemical inputs, and the energy supply is sourced from off-grid wind and solar generators.
