Hello and Welcome! November 11 2014
I am so thrilled you stopped by to take a first glance at my new store!!
I am excited to share these beautiful Extra Virgin Olive Oils with you because these are all oils I use in my own kitchen and I would only sell what I would feed my own family. The very best.
The collection of oils will change from time to time to reflect new discoveries and the freshest products available. I have started with a few oils from Italy and Spain but, hope to have some excellent offerings from California and other regions soon!
This will be a blog to hi-light and feature the stories behind the oils. I will share the details about the people who grow and mill the oils, showcase the beautiful locations and find interesting things to tell you about the wonders of Olive Oil.
I have a cooking blog - http://www.iwanttocookthat.com/ which contains over 500 recipes and many hi-light the specific oils used in each.
I am a certified Olive Oil Taster from ONAOO in Imperia, Italy and have recently attended the Certified Master Milling Course at the University of California at Davis and I continue to research and read as many books as I can get my hands on. I have even read an Olive Oil Encyclopedia from the IOC in Spain...crazy I know!
The point is I want to learn constantly to improve my understanding of this magnificent product and bring you the very best products I can get my hands on.
Join me as we learn to create some fabulous food with fantastic Extra Virgin Olive Oils!!
As a special gift to you my first customers I will include a package of Salt Spring Sea Salt flavoured with Balsamic Vinegar and Garlic (a $10 value). This is a beautiful, artisanal crafted Sea Salt made in the Gulf Islands just off Vancouver, BC and a perfect compliment to trying your new bottle of Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
