Best Local Olive Oil

The olive – zaitoun in Arabic – is the most emblematic of all Lebanese ingredients and forms the bedrock of Lebanese cookery.

At Ali Baba we source our local delicious, rich, green extra-virgin olive oil from a dear friend, Alfred Calamatta and we have been doing so for the past 8 years.

The below photos, show one of our visits to his villa in Santa Agatha estate in Zurrieq where he has over 200 trees of local olives and his own olive press.
