Two new northern hemisphere extra virgin olive oils arrived this week and they are both outstanding. A medium intensity Hojiblanca from Spain is fruity and smooth with a slight bitterness in the middle and pepper on the back. A big bold Frantoio Verde is in from California and has a herbaceous, grassy and peppery profile. Off the chart polypohenols (natural antioxidants) create a strong lingering finish.
If you like the Smoky Chipotle Pepper EVOO, you're in for a treat. We now offer a spicy (and I mean spicy!) Tunisian Harissa infused with chili peppers, coriander, caraway, cumin and garlic. Popular in Middle Eastern dishes, it makes a great marinade for chicken and beef and adds gentle heat to soups, stews, rice and eggs.
We invite you to stop by and try these ultra fresh, premium oils.
