The olive is almost as old as recorded time and is rapidly becoming the new passion for New Zealanders - in the garden and at the table. Over 200,000 olive trees have been planted in the past decade and hundreds of New Zealanders are involved in the young olive industry.
'Olives' provides a fascinating glimpse into our past and how the first olive trees came to New Zealand. First-hand experiences of local growers give an insight into the pleasures and pitfalls of the olive grove. The many and varied uses for the olive - and its delectable aromatic oil - are detaiIed and accompanied by wonderful recipes.
Professor Don Beaven has written a special chapter devoted to the latest medical information regarding the health benefits of the olive.
