The database behind this site was the loving creation of Suzy Oakes, who has since passed away. She is greatly missed. You can see her obituary in the Guardian
A cookbook, featuring Suzy's favourite recipies, is available. People who are interested should contact Mun Flint. Currently, the cost is £12.50 plus postage and packing. All proceeds go to the Suzy Oakes Trust for Mill Road.
Description: A variety of mainly green olive, though they are occasionally available black, from Languedoc. The green ones are a bright, fresh green. Lucques are elongated in shape and curved. They have a smooth skin and sweet, warm, buttery flavour. The black ones, actually reddish brown, are harvested ripe from the end of November to January.
