A Mediterranean temptation!
Pate is a French invention from the Middle Ages, meaning paste. It is said that the first olive paste, also known as olivada or tapanade originated in Provence, although some affirm that it already existed before in other Mediterranean countries.
La Chinata has selected a range of Mediterranean products, apart from olives, like pepper, tomato, porcini mushroom
and has elaborated tasty pates enriched with extra virgin olive oil that are a tempting appetizer, simply spread on a slice of bread.
The gastronomical possibilities are endless. You can add these pates to salads, pastas, pizzas or use them to go with vegetables, fish or white meat. As part of a vinaigrette, its an original new way of dressing a salad.
La Chinata have been producing quality extra virgin olive oils since 1932 but specialise in the production of gourmet deli products in which olive oil is a key ingredient.
