TYPIK Green Olive Paste
The olives of our TYPIK Green Olive Paste come from the excellence terroir of olive: Tunisia. The low rainfall and rich soils of this region with its century-old trees allow to produce more than 140 local varieties and ecotypes: like the chemlali, a tasty olive with green almond and fresh grass aromas, particularly rich in antioxidants. The chétoui, this other colorful and typically dented variety, delivers a fruity taste, rich in phenolics, sovereign for vascular tissues.
Anchovies grown in Tunisian waters reveal the fineness and flavour of this Mediterranean species – the Engraulis Encrasicolus – rich in minerals, iron and vitamins. Our producer, of Sicilian origin, Pietro, works artisanally and as a family, from fishing to processing to sale.
• Our gourmet offers you an elegant aperitif with TYPIK Green Olive Paste: in small serving cups, arrange a layer of tapenade, carrot sticks, crunchy cucumbers, a scallop just pan-fried and a pretty basil leaf delicately placed to perfect the whole.
• You can also make delicious little bricks of fresh goat cheese and tapenade. Choose a fresh goat that you crumble on a plate. Salt, pepper, and make a stuffing by adding rosemary, a few cilantro leaves and 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Then place this stuffing in the centre of the brick sheet. Add a little TYPIK Green Olive Paste on top and fold them gently.
Heat the remaining olive oil in a large skillet and brown the brick leaves 2 to 3 min on each side. Serving hot.
