Parenzana is a delicate and floral cultivar that is native to Puglia, Italy. A corner of the world known for bold spicy intense olive oils. This Favuzzi Delicate Parenzana is a beautiful example of the cultivar. Filled with notes of fresh herbs and apples, as well as almonds. It truly is delicate as it rounds into a lovely green peppercorn finish, the bitterness is light and the pungency is delicate and persistent.
I love this Favuzzi Delicate Parenzana for grilled vegetables, drizzling over white fish and using in everyday salads. Using it in this Caramelized Tomato Onion Tart is delicious. It’s versatile and great for every day as it’s not overwhelming but still will stand out and hold its own among other flavours and ingredients.
