Tunisia is one the world's largest exporters of olive oil outside Europe. Besides eating 5kg per capita per year, it is one of the main exports of the country with around 160,000 tons being produced each year.
But the remarkable thing is not only its taste, but also how it is representative of bringing the differences together. The olive tree and its oil are referenced in all three texts of the Abrahamic religions as being holy - with the command to use it as an anointment and as a light. Besides Tunisia, olive oil production is prevalent in Christian Spain, Jewish Israel, and Muslim Morocco.
It has the power to bring people together.
And doesn't it also look so appetizing?
A plate of olive oil with some olives placed in the centre of the table and served with some fresh bread...is there a better idea?
