Kasandrinos Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Despite questionable, and highly unlikely reports of fake olive oil being imported and sold in the United States, there's still something to be said for looking to Greece, the motherlode of all things olive.
Kasandrinos International is a family owned business, operated by the brother and sister team, Effi and Tony Kasandrinos. Together they import the same Greek organic extra virgin olive oil they grew up on from their fathers village in Greece. The pair is passionate about health, fitness and truly great food. Effi resides in Las Vegas with her husband Brian and daughter Ava while Tony calls Fort Worth, Texas home where he is stationed as an active duty U.S. Marine with 17 years of service.
The story Of Kasandrinos International literally began in a box. Not just any old box but a Crossfit box. When Tony was stationed in Philadelphia, he was training at Crossfit Center City. It was no stretch to say he spent every minute away from duty in this gym. One day he had a case of his families Greek organic extra virgin olive oil that his uncle gave him in the trunk of his car and decided to share it with a few people. Over time, word built up with all the foodies and everyone was asking for their own bottle to take home. Fast forward a few months to when Tony and Diane Sanfilippo attended a Movnat seminar in West Virginia. At the community picnic table one afternoon, Tony decided to share the same Greek organic extra virgin olive oil with fellow attendees. Suffice it to say, the single case of oil he had on hand all but evaporated by days end.
You've heard about this amazing oil, shouted from all the Paleo rooftops. Prepare yourself for one heck of an olive oil, from top to bottom of the bottle, until the last drop is gone and you're back for more. The color is bright, the flavor is assertive, and the health benefits are all in the research.
Kasandrinos Extra Virgin Olive Oil is a great addition to anyone's cooking toolkit.
