One of my favourite things to do in a foreign land is to check out their grocery stores. I stumbled upon gorgeous sealed bags of olives in herbs and oil in Aix-en-Provence, France and completely adored them. Incredibly flavourful and perfect for a picnic for one in my hotel room!
Of course, I picked up other delicious french treats like gooey cheese, fresh tomatoes and little toasts to go along with the olives… but it is the olives I will never forget! So good, I brought home extra packages for me, and as gifts for friends and family.
