Uzel Olive & Olive Oil

Posted by Staff / Posted on March 23, 2011

Uzel Olives TorontoUzel on the Danforth lines its shelves exclusively with the shops' own brand of olive oil, made from the highest quality Turkish Gemlik olives. Mehmet Uzel, the store's manager, explains that all their oil is first-cold pressed using the finest and most ripe hand-picked Gemlik black pearl olives. One way to tell if an Gemlik olive has been traditionally cured is if the flesh parts easily from the pit which is exactly what occurs when sampling Uzel's black pearls. And the oil itself? The black pearl oil actually outperforms the olive, proving itself to be incredibly light and slightly floral with a wonderful, silky texture to it.

The olives and olive oil are extraordinary. They've added baked goods since the first time I went. I've been buying the best spinach pies there for a few months. Yesterday the woman who prepares them was there and I had one straight out of the kitchen. Amazing. They use the black pearl olive oil in the preparation. So good. I also picked up an olive loaf that we're cutting into today, and some wonderful tiny Turkish biscuits that are delicious. Great shop.
