Flavor of the Month

Olive Wood Smoked

Just in time for Barbeque Season: Our Spanish Olive Wood Smoked Olive Oil.  If you want that smoky, bacon-y flavor, this one is for you! Perfect for Dad's Day or Graduation parties and barbeques this beautiful oil complements many dishes. And if Dad doesn't need any more ties, this makes a great gift!  The smoky flavor complements homemade barbeque sauce, fish, poultry, veggies, ham and pork, added to baked beans, green beans, or any dish where you want that rich, savory flavor.  Mix it with our Maple Balsamic Vinegar for ham and pork, baked beans, salmon, or chicken.  We love this simple marinade: Take those beautiful steaks out of the refrigerator. While they are warming up, brush on and then massage in ½ Olive Wood Smoked Olive Oil and ½ Garlic EVOO (The amount of EVOO you use will depend on how many steaks you are cooking). Let the meat sit for about 45 minutes on the counter. Pat any excess oil off, sprinkle with salt and pepper and grill. Take off the grill and let sit for about 10 minutes, loosely covered with foil. This recipe is also great to grill, pan fry, or broil inside.  Find a recipe you like on our website, or invent your own! We'd love to hear your successes!  This month, our Olive Wood Smoked EVOO is on sale. A 60 ml mini is $4.95, a 200 ml is $10.95, and a 375 ml is $14.95.  Have a great summer. We are working on our next cooking class with Rita Heikenfeld in July.  Questions? Comments? Please call us at 513-943-1900.
