A first in the world, the cold pressed ‘Yuzu Olive Oil’ is a highly fragrant blend created for people with a taste for Japanese food flavours. This unique olive oil is made using New Zealand grown olives and the much prized Yuzu citrus, also NZ grown. Yuzu is regarded as a tree of eternal youth and longevity, given that it takes almost two decades to fruit and continues to bear fruit for more than 300 years. It is revered for its highly fragrant skin, which is used in a wide variety of Japanese cooking from Japanese custards to raw fish to a dipping sauce called Ponzu. A favourite at Lot Eight is to make Mignonette dressing to add to a green salad, raw fish and oysters and steamed prawns.
