These gorgeous handmade black and white ceramic plates and dipping bowls are made on Waiheke Island. I call them wibbly-wobbly ceramics because there’s not an even one amongst them and that’s part of their charm.
The dipping bowls are perfect for dukkah, flaky sea salt or olive oil, and a package of ceramic plate and bowl with a small bottle of olive oil makes a lovely memento from Waiheke to give as a gift, especially to a food lover.
Rangihoua award-winning extra virgin olive oils are made on Waiheke. The Rangihoua Waiheke Blend has just won Gold in the Royal Easter Show Awards. The oil is a blend of Verdale, Ascalano and Mission varietals and possesses a fresh grassy taste followed by herbal, apple and floral notes and a lingering peppery finish. In other words, it’s DELICIOUS!
Rangihoua Estate has consistently produced premium quality and award-winning extra virgin olive oils since 1997. The micro-climate is ideal for growing olives and no chemical spraying is necessary to achieve sun-ripened olives of premium quality. Once the olives are harvested, the oil is cold extracted within hours to optimise the quality and retain low fatty acids and inherent goodness.
Rangihoua Estate is a pioneer in olive oil production on Waiheke Island and maintains many groves on the island and presses oil for numerous companies, collectives and private olive groves.
