Britt’s Olive of the Month: Lucques

I could not help but to nominate an “olive of the month” after having tasted the green olive “Lucques” by the cooperative L’Oulibo in Bize-Minervois. Lucques has a characteristic, elongated shape and should preferably be enjoyed au naturel, with nothing added but water and salt. This way you really feel the flavours of the olive. The taste is a bit green and sweet, the texture crunchy and meaty.

Lucques is grown exclusively in the Languedoc and it is above all a table olive. And it is mostly eaten green. Oil is pretty hard to extract from Lucques so not a lot is made. L’Oulibo only makes 2000 litres a year of exclusive Lucques olive oil.

Try Lucques with a white Languedoc wine.
