Our Story

Delicious. Healthy. Simple.

An avid world traveller, Denise Sindle-Tucker began her serious education in all things olive oil during a vacation to Italy in 2011. It was the first time she had tasted real fresh extra virgin olive oil and from that moment on was spoiled for any generic or store-brand olive oil. Subsequent trips to Italy, Spain, California, Arizona, Australia, New Zealand, Greece, Cyprus, Morocco and France solidified her interest in the liquid gold and she set about on a quest to learn as much as possible about the healthful properties and benefits of using olive oil in her personal kitchen.

In 2015 Denise decided to leave her lifelong advertising career and open an olive oil tasting bar in Downtown Barrie. In 2016, Denise attended the Olive Oil Sommelier program at The International Culinary Centre in New York City to gain a deeper understanding about olive oil so she could better identify and source olive oils from around the world, make educated recommendations about which oils and balsamic should go with particular types of food based on her knowledge of oil and vinegar pairing, and suggest oils suited to customers’ taste preferences and culinary requirements.

It was an interactive, fast-paced curriculum and ignited a passion that Denise shares with her team of foodies in three locations in Barrie and Newmarket. Remember: You don’t need to be a chef to make GREAT meals; you just need high quality ingredients and a little inspiration.
