1,800 reasons to love Filippo Berio Olive Oils more than I already do!

For the past 5 years I have been proud to be a brand ambassador for Filippo Berio – you may know them for their incredible Olive Oils, my favourite is their Extra Virgin Olive Oil which I use for practically everything!

Recently I have been supporting Jill Orr with the Kings Hospital “Buy Them A Coffee” Go Fund me Campaign https://uk.gofundme.com/f/buy-them-a-coffee-kch and I asked Filippo Berio if they would consider donating some EV Olive Oil to the front line workers at Kings College Hospital.  Fiippo Berio very kindly agreed and not only did they say yes but they agreed to 1,800 bottles!

Last week myself and fellow brand ambassador, Paola Maggiulli personally delivered a monumental cage full of this wonderful liquid gold directly to the Covid-19 staff who are risking their lives on a daily basis to save others.  We wore face masks and gloves and observed social distancing rules. It was a very emotional and proud moment for both of us.

For those that don’t know Paola she is an Italian Food Specialist who writes, teaches and hosts supper clubs at our venue Fifty Seven, 57 North Cross Road in SE22!  You can follow Paola via her instagram account  where she is known as @thetinyitalian

I would like to personally, say a massive thank you to Filippo Berio for their incredible generosity.  I know it was gratefully accepted and packed up with pasta and fresh vegetables for the staff to take home, allowing them to cook a healthy, nutritious meal which will strengthen their immune system and help fight infections.

Thank you again to all the amazing frontline workers for everything you are doing.
