IL Fiorello Artisan Olive Oil
“If my cuisine were to be defined by just one taste, it would be that of subtle, aromatic, extra-virgin olive oil.”
“You gotta have good olive oil. You should have a cooking olive oil and you should have a finishing olive oil, like an extra-virgin olive oil.”
I have a lot to learn when it comes to Olive Oil. Beside the art of tasting, there is the growing, processing, varieties, flavors, locations, uses and on and on and on! A life time of learning wouldn't cover everything I need to learn about this ancient oil – Ruth Schuster (December 17, 2014). “8,000-year old olive oil found in Galilee, earliest known in world“, Haaretz. Retrieved December 17, 2014.
Frantoio Extra Virgin Olive Oil
“100% Frantoio from our 2013 harvest. Bright, robust, aromatic, and a consistent award winner. Drizzle on grilled steak, hearty bean soup, or grilled breads.”
IL Fiorello Chile Flavored Oil
“From our 2012 harvest. A combination of Thai chiles and harissa, a smoky Tunisian spice. The slow heat compliments grilled meats like lamb or beef.”Harissa – is a Tunisian hot chili pepper paste the main ingredients of which are roasted red peppers, Serrano peppers and other hot chili peppers and spices and herbs such as garlic paste, coriander seed, or caraway as well as some vegetable or olive oil for preservation – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Harissa
IL Fiorello Signature Balsamic Vinegar Reduction
“Our secret recipe. Smooth, bright, and the most versatile of our creations. Use it to complement savory foods like aged cheese.”
I loved this Balsamic reduction!
IL Fiorello products are simply wonderful, with over 40 various products from Olive oils, Blended oils, Balsamic vinegar, Salts, Soaps and hand creams, there is a lot to enjoy! The family has invited me to attend their next culinary class, olive oil tasting and wine tasting event in a few weeks. This will certainly be an exciting trip for me with a 4 hour grilling and craft beers pairing, grove (Olives are grown in groves not orchards) tour and lessons on tasting olive oil, which I need.
