In Italy, crema has long been a part of Italian cooking. But in Italy it is not usually cream that creates the creamy texture. Italians puree a wide range of ingredients and for virtually any vegetable there is a passato. In Italy vegetable spreads are called "creams" even though they contain no dairy products. Their spreadability makes them a perfect charcuterie add on for crackers or crostini. They are an indispensable ingredient used to make soups, toppings and as an ingredient to enhance flavors in a variety of dishes.
This crema packs an intense burst of flavor from black olives, olive oil and sea salt with a fruity flavor that pairs well with both hard and soft cheese. We like to add a swirl to our pull apart "monkey bread" recipe. Also a natural sauce for Pasta alla Cenere.
Similar to a black olive tapenade but so much better.
