Over two thousand years ago, a Roman senator named Cato the Elder wrote down one of the most ancient tapenade recipes survived to this day.
The idea was simple, and it hasn't changed: smash some olives, and add some appropriate condiments. The result not just amazing, but also healthy.
HOW TO USE IT
Try it on pasta, or on steamed seafood fillets, or even better, come up with your own recipe and reach out to tell us what you think!
WHY WE LOVE IT
When you think of it, smashing olives is the exact same principle that make the best cold pressed extra virgin olive oil out there, and the exact same principle that La Macina Ligure applied to make the content of this tasty jar.
What we like about this Tapenade is its rich balanced flavour, pleasantly fatty, that screams for some toasted bread, and a glass of wine, but can also be used in many different recipes.
Plus, of course, it's grown and made in Liguria, Italy.

La Macina Ligure was the very first company we visited back in 2015, well before the website was built or we had a place for the products to be stored. We were welcomed with open arms, showed around the factory and answered every question we had. Who knew there was so much to learn behind these products!
Their mission has always been to bring a piece of Liguria to home all over the world. We are super happy they choose us to be their first importer in the UK. This product is a 100% Gold Beetle Certified™.
