Our Kitchen

Great food starts with great ingredients and the quality of the olive oil you use will determine the overall flavor of any dish. Olive oil should be thought of as a seasoning and an ingredient. Look for olive oil bottled in dark glass with the harvest date on the label and store away from heat and light – resist the temptation to keep it next to your range.
