Villaggio Olive Pate
Thinly slice and then fry a medium sized onion in a dash of olive oil. Add a dash of tomato puree and sizzle together. Then remove from heat and add two or three generous handfuls of olives (stones removed). Whizz this up in the blender until it’s the consistency you prefer. Chill in the fridge and when cold, enjoy it slathered on French bread. Black or Green olives both work, and both give a very different taste. This is best eaten in the shade of a gnarly old olive tree, to escape the heat of the sun.
Villaggio Olive Pate – not veggie:
Follow the recipe above, but add in a couple of anchovies to taste and a dash of Worcestershire sauce before whizzing
Villaggio Olive Pate – not veggie plus!
