Today, I want to introduce you to the effortless delight of roasting Olives with garlic, cherry tomatoes, thyme and Bari Koroneiki Olive Oil. This is the first time for me roasting olives, and I was at first hesitant, but then I had a good, strong feeling that this was going to be wonderful- and oh boy! It did not disappoint. The smell coming out of the oven was reaching every corner of my apartment. I felt bad my neighbors were going to be jealous- wondering “what is that amazing smell and where is coming from”? At first, I was cooking this only for myself to enjoy with a movie. But, after realizing this was that good, I had to make a call to a friend of mine because food like this should only be eaten with company and a good glass of your favorite wine.
