About Entre Caminos:
The Escalera Alvares family have been in the agriculture business for three generations in La Roda (Sevilla), Spain. Isabela and Juan the members of the new generation of the family decided to dedicate their future to Olive Oil producing and they founded their own Olive Oil brand Entre Caminos in 2019. Years of hard work followed and here they are with a range of excellent quality Award-Winning Organic Olive Oils. Their philosophy is all about sustainability and tradition. Olive Oil produced from organic olives, packed from 100% recycled and 100% recyclable materials. The design of the packaging is inspired by and dedicated to all the hard-working women of the rural areas. This is Entre Caminos, where the people are as amazing as their Olive Oil.
This year's Entre Caminos Selección is a bit different than last year. Or, let's say completely different, but in a good way. It has pleasant aromas such as apple, green leaf and notes of green grass. We think the presence of the apple is stronger than last year's oil. If you taste the oil you will notice the major difference. The apple will be the first thing you notice, followed by some green almonds and the pleasant surprise of a medium black pepper flavour. A lovely twist at the end. Beautiful oil, more robust than last year. It draws a nice curve from the fresh apple to the black pepper, with balanced pungency and spiciness. We still love the marinated cod in Entre Caminos EVOO with ginger, coriander and lime served with fresh salad and fried rice. You can also try the roast veg with thyme and rosemary made with the Entre Caminos Selección. Enjoy!
