Olives are something that I love using in my cooking. I'm of Greek heritage so I grew up eating olives, all different kinds, predominately Kalamatas. They're beautiful because they're And briny, and they give a lot of, kind of help to cut through rich dishes. So I love to do them with dishes that maybe are a little bit richer, like a grilled lamb chop, with an olive relish, or something of that nature. Really cut through the fat.
