Which olive oil for this recipe ?

We advise you to use a delicate-tasting PDO huile d’olive de Nyons, for its sweetness, its smoothness, its aromas of dried fruit, and its buttery taste, along with possible aromas of fresh hazelnuts and/or freshly-cut grass.
You can also use one of these PDO olive oils: Nice and Corse – Oliu di Corsica – récolte à l’ancienne.
