The impact of the olive has been as widespread as it is profound. From the time of the fabled Phoenician traders to the present day, olives and olive oil are treasures of flavor and staples of trade.
Olives are a foundational ingredient in each of the five great cuisines of the Mediterranean. Italian, Greek, Lebanese, Moroccan and Spanish cuisines each uniquely pay homage to the olive in their savory offerings.
