Last summer I visited Temecula for a little food and wine tour, you may have remembered all the yummy things I brought home one of them being Temecula Olive Oil. There is something decadent about hand pressed olive oil. I could actually drink this stuff straight it is THAT good. If you did you would definitely notice what I called the ‘after burners’ that spicy heat caused by the antioxidants that remain intact in fresh pressed olive oil. Its intense. I have a stash in my pantry now and I will never buy store bought dressing again.
Last night I paired Fresh Basil Olive Oil, Roasted Garlic Olive Oil with Vanilla & Fig Balsamic Vinegar I simply poured them directly into the salad without even emulsifying it. There wasn’t even as much as a bite left. You can also drizzle the oil (and vinegar as well) on roasted or grilled vegetables.
So the wonderful people of Temecula Olive Oil company are going to send one lucky reader – 6 bottles of olive oil and vinegar! You will receive a bottle of Olivum, a rich buttery blend of several varietals is the perfect enhancement to any recipe instead of vegetable oils or butter, Citrus Reserve enhances your salads, poultry, seafood or baking with the essence of Blood oranges and Roasted Garlic Reserve a must-have for that pasta or grilled meat lover. You will also receive the following vinegars: Vanilla & Fig Balsamic, Honey Balsamic and California Balsamic Bianco Pomegranate. Each box includes three (3) 100 ml bottles (one of each flavor.) Shipping included.
If you are ever in the Temecula area try and make this one of your must places to see, they have an Olive Oil tasting bar and a store filled with gourmet foods, lavender candles and of course all the Olive Oil and Vinegar you could ever want.
