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.

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™.
