Elysian Elaiasalata (el-lee-ya-sal-ah-tah) takes the best of traditional Mediterranean cuisine and mixes it with a bit of Kiwi ingenuity. The result, an original and silky smooth elaia (olive) dip... prepare to be delighted!
Elysian Taramasalata recipe dates back many generations from a small island off the coast of Greece in the Ionian Sea. New Zealand's only locally-made taramasalata - a silky smooth dip made from salted cod's roe.
Elysian Tzatziki is thick, delicious and gluten-free, our tzatziki is made with locally-sourced yogurt, fresh cucumbers and olive oil from the Wairarapa. Try it spread on wraps and kebabs (souvlaki) or as the perfect condiment for lamb, chicken and fish.
Elysian Foods was established in 2000 by Basil and Martha Yiannoutsous, working out of their well-known Deli in Miramar. Due to the high demand for Basil’s Taramasalata, he began making it in larger batches and distributing it to supermarkets and delis around the country. The Elysian range of handcrafted products now includes Taramasalata, Elaiasalata, Tzatziki and Marinated Olives.
In 2017 Basil and Martha sold the business to the new owner, Toby Green. Elysian Foods moved up the road (Park Road in Miramar, that is) into a bigger space with a brand new production kitchen and warehouse.
