Castillo de Canena Arbequina & Harissa Oil
The combination of Castillo de Canena arbequina extra virgin olive oil and harissa sauce creates fragrances and flavours of spices, offering a fruity herbal taste. Harissa sauce is typical of Mediterranean cuisine from North Africa and is becoming very popular in the rest of the world.
Traditionally, Harissa has been closely related to the Maghreb region: the northwest corner of Africa that touches the Mediterranean Sea and consists of the countries of Tunisia, Morocco, Algeria and Libya. The Harissa has been at the centre of Maghreb cuisine since the explorers of the New World first introduced the pepper from the high Andean region of Peru to Europe in the 16th century.
The chillies travelled to North Africa together with the Spanish colonisers and with the travelling spice merchants, and began to appear in the souks, where spices were added and Harissa sauce was adapted to each local cuisine
The oil tasting of Castillo de Canena arbequina and Harissa: it presents in the foreground the toasted and pungent aromas of the cayenne pepper, followed by the other spices, where each of them can be perfectly identified in the aftertaste: garlic, coriander and caraway. To this, we can add a weighted and intensified combination with the fruity and green aromas of the fresh arbequina olive juice.
