A Mediterranean temptation ‘Pâté’ is a French invention from the Middle Ages, which means ‘paste’. It is said that the first olive paste, also known as ‘olivada’ or ‘tapanade’ was originated in Provence, although some affirm that it already existed in other Mediterranean countries before that. La Chinata has selected a range of Mediterranean products, apart from olives, like pepper, tomato, porcini mushroom… and has elaborated tasty pastries enriched with Extra Virgin Olive Oil that are a tempting appetizer, simply spread on a slice of bread. Moreover, the gastronomic possibilities are sheer endless: you can add them to salads, pastas, pizzas or use them to go with vegetables, fish or white meat. As part of vinaigrette, it’s an original new way of dressing a salad. We recommend eating these products with La Chinata Picos,Rosquitas or Regañás.
