Living the extra Virgin Life
In 2003 Cláudia Villax started a family organic farming project that gave rise to the production of organic olive oil. After the success of the book Da Horta para a Mesa, in 2013, he now returns to the theme of land and organic farming with A Vida Virgem Extra, where he reveals the adventure that has been producing organic olive oil.
In this work, he conveys the knowledge he has acquired over the last 14 years about olive oil, the essence of the food we eat; teaches how to buy olive oil, how it is produced, what benefits it brings to our health; demystifies the myths surrounding it, etc. And it challenges us to try countless recipes that can be made from olive oil.
Some delight our palate and stomach, others to learn how to take care of our body and hair.
Come on and fall in love with olive oil again.
One of the best superfoods that is good for your health!
