Easter, known for its rich symbolism of rebirth and renewal, is observed in various ways across different corners of the world. As an olive oil company deeply rooted in tradition and quality, we take pride in exploring how this holiday is celebrated through the lens of gastronomy.

As we feel the festive season of Easter, it brings with it a tapestry of traditions celebrated around the globe. From vibrant processions to elaborate feasts, this holiday is a time of joy and renewal for many cultures. At Deoleo we believe in celebrating these diverse customs, and what better way to honor them than through the culinary delights that grace Easter tables worldwide?

We are thrilled to share recipes for three iconic Easter dishes from around the world, each infused with the goodness of olive oil:

East Indian Fugias: Originating from the vibrant tapestry of Indian culture, East Indian Fugias are a delightful treat enjoyed during Easter. These fluffy, fried dumplings are infused with aromatic spices and soaked in a sweet syrup, symbolizing the indulgence and sweetness of the season. The addition of olive oil adds a depth of flavor and richness, elevating this beloved dish to new heights.
