Electric olive oil!

Mehmet Murat sells wonderful, fruity olive oil, including  a lemon flavoured oil (which some say is good enough to drink), from....his electrical supply shop in Clerkenwell! (Embassy Electrical stores, 76 Compton St) The oil comes from Mehmets family's olive groves in Cyprus and south-west Turkey and he imports more than a 1,000 litres per year! When I called in to buy some bottles, I was given several samples to drink....quite a strange, but delicious experience, when surrounded by fuses, wires and plugs!
