“I recommend picual products for “novice oil consumers”. With its softer, silkier taste, it is easy to apply to the dishes of Hungarian cuisine, it is also delicious for salads, pasta and cookies. Our surroundings, the villages of the Toledo hills, are characterized by a goat horn-shaped berry of the cornicabra variety, the oil of which has a stronger, more characteristic taste. And the arbequina berry is grown mainly in the sides of the Mediterranean Sea, in Catalonia and further south, it is also a soft, pleasant, fruity oil specialty” begins to tell Dorottya Csányi  the basics of olive berry knowledge and the photos appear too. The time spent here is worth a trip, a gastronomic adventure.
