Olives Et Al

Olives Et Al was launched in 1993 by Annie and Giles Henschel, and are based at Sturminster Newton, Dorset where they have a shop and deli. Also, The Potting Shed, based at Poundbury, Dorchester, Dorset, is a cafe serving food and drinks, a large shop and deli counter. They also have a fabulous online shop selling oils and balsamics, speciality olives, sauces, snacks, kiln roasted nuts, dressings and marinades.

Harissa Almonds, kiln roasted by Olives Et Al and spiced with sweet hot harissa - crush and sprinkle onto salads, chop and use to replace pine nuts, or simply to snack on.

Putney Sauce, a relish made from sundried tomatoes, red peppers and spices - this goes well with sausages and would be perfect for barbeques.

Beetroot & Thyme Dressing - this is a lively dressing and perfect stirred into soured cream with smoked salmon or for dressing a rocket salad.

Plump Green Olives stuffed with sundried tomatoes in sunflower oil - there are many ways to use these juicy, flavoursome olives and I chose to top homemade foccacia with mine.

Thank you Olives Et Al and James.

Mr CC and I are olive addicts - we'll happily demolish a big pot in one go. Your focaccia looks ace

Hello, what is a foccacia? It looks great, I would like to try it. I like baking and I am good at it (better than cooking).

Hi Veronique - foccacia is the cousin to your fougasse.
