The Taggiasca Olive is a truly special one: you will only find this variety in the north west side of Italy, close to the city of Imperia. The Ligurian climate, water and calcareous soil, are mostly responsible for its uniqueness, that you will appreciate more and more as your palate accustoms to them.
HOW TO USE IT
Add the pitted olives to give an edge to your antipasto, or make a quick tomato and chilli sauce for your pasta. And if you are ready to be impressed, take our bread recipe and add these beautiful organic olives to it. You're welcome!
WHY WE LOVE IT
Small, with a unique tender texture and a rich dark reddish colour that serves as a constant reminder of the flavour journey they carry with them. Oil rich, delicate, fruity, sweet with a spicy hint of almonds and pine nuts, and a slightly bitter after-taste. In short: the best companion for any antipasto.
