Kalamata olives are a vital part of Greek food and Greek culture. The olive is also found throughout Greek mythology. Legend has it that Athena, goddess of wisdom, gave the olive tree to individuals. This not just gave nourishment, but oil for fuel and wood for structure. This meaty and tangy range of olives has actually been made into a spread that is similar to Italian veggie crowns. The tangy flavor of olives and a fresh loaf of foccacia bread have been natural partners for centuries. Serve this spread as a dip with flat breads, crostini, pitas, or any type of crusty bread. Attempt it spread out on fish prior to grilling. This could quickly become a staple in your kitchen!
