Herring toast with PDO huile d’olive de Nîmes
Tips and tricks
If you serve them as a starter, plan 1 toast per person. You can also offer it on a mini toast as an aperitif!
We advise you to use an intense-tasting PDO huile d’olive de Nîmes for its aromas of greenery, dry hay, pineapple, yellow plum and raw artichoke, sometimes rounded off with notes of red plum and apple. You can also use one of these PDO olive oils: Aix-en-Provence, Corse – Oliu di Corsica, Haute-Provence, Provence, Vallée des Baux-de-Provence.
