Have an Olive Day With This Scintillating Spanish Snack

For the third, wonderful year in a row, Olives from Spain came back to New York’s Summer Fancy Food Show to further reach out to the more than 17,000 professionals in the Hotel Restaurant and Café (HORECA) sector. How did attendees receive the most authentic Mediterranean snack? Oh, you can bet people had an Olive Day.

Olives from Spain’s campaign, Have an Olive Day, came in full force with chef Alberto Astudillo making his original dressings to entertain samplers. For all three days of the Food Show, a multitude of creative recipes showcased the versatility of olives such as: olives with chili peppers and walnuts, olives with goat cheese and paprika, and crackers with olives and ginger. I might have to recreate these pairings myself at home.
