Every night can be an olive tasting party: A few of my favorites here: Castelvetrano, Cerignolas & good old fashioned Kalamata. Plus, the greatly underrated OKRA which will cook for 6-7 minutes in a pure vegetable stock and eaten as the best finger food on the planet. What a feast of rarified flavors & textures. Simple? Yup. Easy? You betcha! Basic/boring? Not a chance!
