Sea Ascolana Olive Recipe – Italian Cuisine


«One of the symbolic dishes of my hometown, Ascoli Piceno, the Ascoli olives, which I adore. I choose those stuffed with fish, which I order from the Opificio della Tradizione. It is a shop run by two young people who interpret the ancient recipes in a superb way. For example, they only use “tener ascolane” olives, an exclusive local cultivar "says the musician Saturnino Celani since 1991 bassist of Jovanotti
