Join Routes and More and Life In Abruzzo for a 1st Sunday experience in Abruzzo, on Sunday 7th November for a traditional olive harvest, eating in the groves and whisking our olives to the mill to taste and take home our green gold
Taking elements from both Abruzzo & Le Marche this dish is a fried heaven of lamb, battered vegetables, sweet custard fritters and olive all’Ascolana; these amazing olives are stuffed with meat, breaded and deep fried to crispy perfection
Bocconotti Montoriesi are seductive rustic pastries that celebrate Abruzzo’s most acclaimed harvests around the former Roman small town of Montorio Val Vomano in Teramo
As a self-confessed olive fiend, I was delighted to hear that my favourite gnarled tree was also now gifting us Organic Olive Leaf Tea courtesy of Abruzzo groves
Blue on Blue means a carpet of speedwell in the olive groves competing with the sky as to who can chase the real blues away in Abruzzo till it’s officially Spring
It was almost a case of “olived-out” courtesy of the omnipresent olive-based conversations, that is until an olive sagra down in San Vincenzo Valle Roveto!
