New Oils: We have recently ordered three new Italian varietal olive oils to add to our wonderful array of international oils:
Ogliarola – Mild Intensity
Nocellara – Robust Intensity
Biancolilla – Medium Intensity.
As soon as we have them on the shelves, we will send out a special short blast to all of you so you can be among the first to taste these wonderful new oils.
For those of you who have never been able to personally visit our store, we have a special treat for you in the near future. We’re subscribing to Google’s Virtual Tour program which will take you through our front doors and into the shop. You’ll be able to see how our oils are stored in stainless steel fustis and the balsamics in ceramic crocks. A quick stop at our Pasta Corner will show you the beautiful artisan pastas that will ignite “pastability” ideas. Shelves laden with jarred olives, books, and linens will scream “olives” everywhere you look. Then, front and center, you will see the kitchen demo area with a large screen for audience viewing—-just like on the Food Network shows! We use that space for our popular cooking classes. After viewing the store you’ll definitely want to make it a must-see to visit us, either virtually or in person if you’re in the area. Along with letting you know when the new oils are ready for purchase, we’ll let you know when the Virtual Tour goes active and we’ll tell you how to access it. Stay tuned.
And now the best news for today, March 1st, it looks like we’re going to have a dandy of a storm, bringing snow and rain to the foothills. Finally we’re getting some winter!
