Olio Olive Oils & Balsamics is a family-owned business operated by the Desimone family. Customers are free to sample just about everything in the store including over 80 different oils and balsamic vinegars, more than 70 sea salt varieties, and flavored sugars. Their oils are from around the world and the balsamic vinegars are from Modena, Italy.
The vinegars are thick and rich with flavor. Olio’s top seller is the Lemon in White balsamic vinegar. It is great not only as a dressing for a salad, but also adds wonderful flavor to steamed vegetables, chicken and fish.
In addition to their lovely oils, you may want to try their sea salt selection, including Italian truffle salt (their best seller), bacon, smoked and vanilla sea salt. Try the vanilla sea salt on corn on the cob and cantaloupe…Delicious!!
Olio has recently partnered with Calicutts Spices to bring the freshest seasoning blends to its store. The taste and aroma these seasonings add to food is truly amazing. Fire salt on eggs…yummy! Mediterranean seasoning on roasted vegetables…superb!! Add Chipotle and Honey seasoning to pulled pork…fantastic!!
Be sure to visit Olio soon as they’re expanding their store and selection!
