This month, we will talk about condiments based on extra virgin olive oil WITH essential oils.

The climate and geology of the Mediterranean area favors both the cultivation of olives and aromatic plants and are a fundamental reference in our kitchen.

Aromatic herbs surround the fields and in one way or another influence our Oil. And as we have them within reach and are part of our landscape, gastronomy and culinary tradition, we take advantage of them and create Olicatessen&.

Our traditional oil mixed with essential oil from the traditional aromatic herbs of the Mediterranean territory: Fresh, intense, perfumed, stimulating …

Artists drive a tractor – Sara Boldú

Dates of the exhibition: April 5 to May 31, 2019
Place: Centre de l’Oli de la Granadella

Photographer Sara Boldú showcasing her project “Artists with a tractor” at “Centre de l’Oli de la Granadella”

A homage to the agriculture of the Les Garrigues region, seen from the sky, work done with a drone, showing how to till, harvest, mow, prune, harvest … are works that, when viewed from the sky, they become art.

In this exhibition tribute is paid to the land and the peasantry from an artistic, visual and poetic point of view.

Sara Boldú wants to transmit with this work, as human action through agriculture draws the landscape as if it were the canvas of a painting.

The exhibition consists of three parts, photography, audiovisual and testimonies of farmers.

This is the first field work of the director that over a year has traveled with a drone the region and its surroundings to record the different stages of the earth “The land seen from the air becomes a mosaic and the farmer in his artist. ”

In this video, you can see a part (very important) of the process we do in Olicatessen, the collection of the olive.

We LOVE this work and we are very PROUD of it. Thank you Sara! To dignify the work of the agricultor.

As a culinary element,
Olicatessen is extraordinary

Extra virgin olive oil is an element / common ingredient in the kitchen, at least in the kitchens of the Mediterranean countries where we are producers.

That is why it is convenient to know how to use them and how we can make the best use of each of the oils that we have / buy.

With great brushstrokes, we could say that:
The sweet fruity oils, which mainly come from the coast (Siurana, Castellón ,,,, of mature arbequina or of the empeltre variety, among others), usually have a light fruity and a mild flavor, with tenuous or null notes of bitter. They are the ideal ones to combine with foods of delicate flavor. They are very suitable for:

  • mayonnaise
  • Replace the butter to make buns or other sweets.
  • ideal pastry
  • sweet salads
  • marinated
  • To play with textures

The average fruity oils, obtained from early harvests and especially from the interior, since the climate favors this type of oil. They have a more intense fruity and green, sweet at the mouth, but also more bitter and spicy. They are very versatile and combine very well with foods of defined flavors, but not extreme.
They are very suitable for:

  • Olicatessen_arrosVeal
  • Grilled chicken
  • mushrooms
  • Pasta and rice
  • vegetables
  • salads

 

IN THIS CATEGORY, WE CAN LOCATE Olicatessen :)

The intense fruity oils, which especially occur in varieties such as picual, picudo, cornicabra, etc. They are oils with body and character, with intense green fruity notes and well defined bitter and spicy notes.
They are very suitable for:

  • gazpachos
  • red meats
  • Spoon dishes and pots.
