Every once in a while I run across something that is the perfect version of itself. These are my favorite things, and I’d like to share them with you. This week’s edition: OLIVE OIL & VINEGAR.
I have a HUGE collection of olive oil, and every time I travel someplace new, I pick up the local specialty. I do have a few favorites, however, and every time I travel to these destinations, I pick up a supply to last until I can return again. I just haven’t found anything better (and I’ve tried a lot).
- Temecula Olive Oil Company: Fresh Basil Oil. It’s the best basil oil I’ve found. The name says it all- it’s just like sprinkling fresh basil over your salad. It’s perfect over fresh summer tomatoes.
- Temecula Olive Oil Company: Fresh Pomegranate California Basalmico Bianco. Perfectly tart, and sweet. It makes amazing salad dressings.
- St. Helena Olive Oil Company: Rosemary Extra Virgin Olive Oil: Again, it’s the best rosemary oil I’ve found. It tastes like your fingers smell after running through a rosemary field. Perfect over steaks, or roasted tomatoes, or to dip bread in.
Try these for yourself and let me know what you think. Got any favorites of your own you want to share?
