Description

Olive oil is not just a superfood; in the region of Jaen it also represents a way of life. In the 21st century a revolution broke out there: Picual, the most emblematic, but historically rather underrated olive, may well produce the best extra virgin olive oil in the world. The film introduces us to olive growers and the challenges they face as well as to renowned chefs who see the changes from gastronomy and consumerism perspectives. The film is full of hidden beauty of one of Spain’s least-known provinces.
