On the ancient coast of southern Greece lies Kalamata, a city surrounded by olive groves since Classical times. The olives grown there are unique, aubergine coloured, almond-shaped and succulent. So good are they, in fact, that the name has been awarded European Protected Designation of Origin status; as with Champagne in the wine world, only olives grown in that particular region are allowed to be called Kalamata. The very best are organic, helping to preserve the old olive groves as sanctuaries for wildflowers, insects and birds.
