We have a difficult time understanding people who don’t care for olives; a challenge because one of us is married to one of those people. It’s hard to wrap our head around why anyone would turn their nose on fruit (yes, olives are fruit!) that comes in so many wonderful varieties, colours and flavours. We’ve come to accept that perhaps the tartness, bitterness and occasional spiciness of olives is an acquired taste, and growing up in a Greek household, it was a taste that we acquired quite young.
We love food; we love to eat food, write about food and talk about food. It must run in the family, because we have recently (like right now) been enjoying a visit from our Australian cousin. Along with showing off our beautiful city, hanging out with all of our cousins, and hearing about the perils of living down under (we have decided that Aussies are much braver than us Canadians!), we have found ourselves constantly talking about food…possibly because we are always eating. We have been having a truly beautiful time.
