Products Used In This Recipe

  • Our finest balsamic vinegar from Modena, Italy. Produced in the traditional Modena style and aged at least 18 years in Oak barrels.
    Tip: Very diverse; thick and potent enough to be dripped onto a dish as a condiment and also balanced enough so it will pair well with one of our olive oils in a salad dressing. The acidity of our Traditional Balsamic vinegar makes it pair extremely well with our sweeter oils and with sweet foods, such as fresh fruit or even ice cream.

  • This Gold medal winning Tuscan Italy variety has unbelievably low free fatty acids of .09 and a high polyphenol count of 343. It is complex and intense. This is very durable well-made oil that will last over 30 months if stored under optimal conditions. It is estate produced. Only 2000 liters left in the world until next year.
