pistachio oil sponge, candied olives, olive chips, olive "granola", rosemary creme, grapefruit
on a side note. i absolutely detest olives! but in this form, i will gladly eat them like a snack.
the olives are first blanched in water. blanched a second time in light simple syrup. blanched a third time in heavy simple syrup. and finally reserved in a rosemary simple syrup. the final result gives the olives the texture of canned cherries, but with a mellow salt and briny olive flavor.
