“The olive tree is like an old friend. It knows all my life and gives me wise counsel.”
-- Paul Cézanne
Last post I promised to discuss flavor trends from the Winter Fancy Food Show but since it’s Monday, I thought I would first post a couple of macro photo of olives.
These green Lucque olives hail from the Languedoc region of France. Their almond shape is attractive and they are delicious with a firm, almost crunchy, texture and tangy flavor.
They were beautifully presented by FoodMatch who produces tasty olives from Greece, France, Spain, and Morocco.
DeLallo always has impressive displays at the show...
...but this year they outdid themselves with their dazzling booth…
…or I should say booths…
…or I should say neighborhood.
Their expansive offerings of olives, pickles, and peppers astonish me. I don’t believe I’ve ever seen banana peppers before.
My daughter absolutely adores DeLallo jalapeno peppers. She and her roommate used to order them from the internet; they hope that they will be carried in all grocery stores soon.
This is the first time I’ve tasted Partanna olives. I highly recommend them; especially the green ones in the middle.
