This oil is pressed from 100% arbequina olives, a variety especially favored in Catalunya. The little brown olives are tasty to snack on, and the oil is used liberally in the regional cuisine. Arbequina oil has a green fuity flavor, balanced by an almond-y nuttiness. It's absolutely delicious in salads, allioli, fish, and other lighter preparations, such as Catalunya's iconic breakfast, pa amb tomaquet (bread with tomato). A good arbequina oil pulls it all together, elevating everything. Arbequina oil is the best friend bread ever had. IMPORTED.
