Tips and tricks

We advise you to use a delicate-tasting PDO huile d’olive de Nice for its sweetness and its aromas of almond, raw artichoke, broom flours, hay, grass, leaves, pastry, ripe apple and dried fruit, and its lemony notes.

You can also use one of these PDO olive oils: Nyons and Corse – Oliu di Corsica – récolte à l’ancienne.
