INTRODUCING OUR NEWEST OLIVE OILS! Recently, we introduced several new olive oils in our stores including the following: Cobrancosa from Portugal. The oil of this rare early harvest varietal has delicate fruit aromas and a creamy, smooth consistency, with the perfect amount of delayed pungency–a treat for the palate! Baklouti Green Chili olive oil is made by crushing organic extra virgin olive oil and fresh whole Tunisian Baklouti chili peppers. This pepper is unique to the Barbary coast of North Africa. Wake up your favorite foods with this flavorful oil!
INTRODUCING OUR NEWEST GIFT TUB–THE SALAD TUB: A great Mother’s Day gift or anytime gift for salad lovers! Complete with oil and vinegar whisk, Grey Poupon Dijon Mustard, and your choice of oil and vinegar pairing including Tuscan Herb Oil & Sicilian Lemon Balsamic, Basil Olive Oil & Fig Balsamic, and Basil Olive Oil & Blackberry Ginger Balsamic. Selections vary according to store location. This gift item comes wrapped and with a bow (shown unwrapped).
TOASTED SESAME OIL. Now available in 2-ounce bottles in both stores. If you have not sampled our Sesame Oil, you will be wowed by its rich toasted flavor and aroma, and its ability to transform your recipes from “everyday” to “gourmet.” Sesame oil is nutrient rich and contains antioxidants, minerals and vitamins. It has a long shelf life and a high smoke point, so it is ideal for stir frying, sautéing, roasting and finishing.
