Olives are a fundamental element of the gastronomy of all Mediterranean countries. Thanks to olives’ great taste and versatility, they can also be part of other traditional dishes, such as ceviches, baos, or makis.
The European Union and Interaceituna teach us to introduce all the flavor, aroma, and color that table olives can bring to these cuisines. This can be seen as a new type of gastronomic fusion straight from the world leaders of production and quality, which becomes a differentiating element that allows North American foodies to prepare dishes from Japan, South America, or China, with a marked Mediterranean twist.
This is the base of fusion cuisine: to adapt food and amend to local tastes and habits. This new philosophy makes dishes and products from any corner of the world popular for both cultures. Here, olives have much to contribute. Olives enclose the four basic flavors (sweet, salty, bitter, and acid), which opens up an immense horizon of possibilities when mixing them with other ingredients.
