Mild Nocellara Olives

rolled in lemon infused oil

Description

We love the Sicilian Nocellara Del Belice olives for their mild-mannered flavour, rolling them in lemon and oil for a fresh, mellow bite that's perfect for those who prefer a subtle taste (that's why it's a great starter olive).

Lively Cuquillo and Volos Olives

shaken up with garlic and a sprinkle of paprika

Description

We chose green volo from Greece for their meaty texture, marrying it with Spanish black cuquillos whose softer flesh deliver a deep flavour. Together they are enlivened with richly fragrant garlic and gently spicy paprika for a deliciously spirited partnership (one that's outspoken yet outstanding).

Enjoy with...

Fino colosia (100% Palomino), Jerez , NV paired with Cuquillos and Volos with Garlic and Paprika

Sherry and olives are a classic ombination, a fresh and light sherry with salty notes reminiscent of the coast comes to life when matched with these olives. The paprika and garlic give a bit of complexity to support the weight of the sherry.

Fruity Nocellara and Alfonso Olives

Delicately rolled in a little oil

Description

The vivid green, mellow nocellara olives capture the laidback character of their Sicilian origins and are the perfect partner to the soft, fleshy deep purple alfonso olive, whose big, fruity wine flavours are bursting with Peruvian soul. It’s a delicious double act.

Fragrant Beldi Olives

tumbled with fennel seeds and orange peel

Description

The wonderfully meaty and slightly nutty Moroccan Beldi Olives are more than bold enough to take on the big flavours of warm zesty orange peel and refreshingly aniseedy fennel seeds. We’ve lightly crushed the olives to allow the fennel and oil to marinade to infuse deeply into the flesh, making them taste so moorish you’ll have to share with care.

Vibrant Manzanilla Olives

with Pesto, Tomatoes and Mozarella

Description

We chose the Manzanilla olive for it's vibrant taste and slight almond flavour that perfectly compliments the rich depth of the sun-dried tomatoes and pesto marinade, while contrasting the creamy softness of the mozzarella. This antipasti serves up the best flavour influences of Italy on one plate. (so you could go all out and add it to spaghetti).

Robust Marinated Kalamata Olives

with full-flavoured crumbly feta

We love the undeniable Greekness of deeply rich and fruity kalamata olives with full-bodied, crumbly feta. It's a mix of such simple harmony that it is perfect just as it is (you don't even need a plate).

Generously proportioned, full-flavoured, peppery and only grown on the Halkidiki Peninsula in Greece, this heroic olive is brave enough to take on jalapenos and pimentos for a hot (but not too hot) nibble.
