Olive Oil Gifts Are Perfect for Your Loved Ones

Olive oil giftsIf you are searching for the perfect birthday or Christmas gift, Isabella’s Fine Olive Oils has some great options. Olive oil gifts are very popular, since they combine visual appeal with usefulness. Our products come packaged in elegant bottles, which also look great on your countertop as a decoration. We also have an assortment of gift baskets, so you can choose from larger or smaller bottles, depending on the budget and what your recipient might like best. Share a sampler two-pack, allowing your friend or family member to try a few new flavors of olive oil, or stock up with the 18-pack, which comes nicely packaged for easy giveaway.

Olive oil gifts are also a great item to give away at raffles or silent auctions. Many people enjoy experimenting with new flavors and recipes in the kitchen, so providing unique flavors of oils and vinegars is a great way to try something different. The elegance of the bottle helps buyers know that these are high-end, high-quality food items that will be used often. If you aren’t sure what type of olive oil gifts might be well-received, you can also pick up one of our gift vouchers, allowing the recipient to choose the flavors he or she would like to try.

In addition to flavored balsamic vinegars and various types of olive oils, we also carry gourmet oils that amplify the flavors of your food. We have dark toasted sesame oil, which is the perfect complement to your Far East-inspired dishes, as well as roasted walnut oil and white truffle oil, which are flavorful alternatives to other cooking oils.

 

 

Flavor Your Favorite Foods with Traditional Balsamic Vinegar

traditional balsamic vinegarTraditional balsamic vinegar is a delicious addition to some of your favorite meals. At Isabella’s Fine Olive Oils, we carry a robust blend of freshly-harvested white grape juice, boiled down to become more heavily concentrated. Once boiled down, the vinegar is aged slowly in wooden casks over 18 years, fermenting the flavors and producing a rich and tangy final product. We carry a variety of size options of traditional balsamic vinegar, so you can sample it with a smaller bottle, or use it in more capacities when you choose a larger bottle.

Some of the most popular uses for balsamic vinegar include mixing it with olive oil to produce a delicious dressing for green salads and pasta salads, as well as creating a balsamic glaze to drizzle over pizza, chicken, steak, or other savory meats. In traditional Italian restaurants, you can typically find balsamic vinegar on the table as a condiment for dipping bread or adding flavor to your meal, and you can easily re-create this idea at home with your own bottle of traditional balsamic vinegar.

Some of the less common but equally delicious ways to use traditional balsamic vinegar are spreading it on bread or your favorite grilled cheese sandwich or sprinkling a drop or two atop a slice of tomato. You can also add it to your morning oatmeal along with a handful of blueberries, strawberries, or other fresh fruit, or marinate fish in it for tangy and unique-tasting fish tacos. At Isabella’s Fine Olive Oils, we also carry a range of fruit-infused balsamic vinegars, which can take your recipes to the next level of flavor.
