ABOUT THE OIL:
Refine your palate with the flavors of France. Herbes de Provence is essential to French cuisine. Its unique and distinctive blend of herbs was made popular by Julia Childs in the 1970s. Now you can find it in just about anywhere. Its herbal, earthy and minty tones made it ideal for a wide array of dishes including chicken, turkey, fish, beef, salads, and stews. Set in Sicilian extra virgin olive oil, it is one of the most nutritious and delicious specialty oils. It is a great addition of fresh taste in health-conscious cooking and a great way to add a shot of complex flavor to your home cooked meals. Or simply use for dipping fresh based artisanal breads.
All of our Sicilian extra virgin olive oils are cold pressed and made with REAL dried spices. With real spices inside, the strength of the taste of this oil will increase with each passing day. This fresh olive oil is also packed with antioxidants and polyphenols, which can help improve a plethora of issues, when used in moderation. The ingredients in this delectable oil are cold pressed Sicilian extra virgin olive oil, summer savory, oregano, rosemary, majoram, parsley and lavender flowers. The summer savory is the perfect compliment, to the otherwise earthy flavor of the other spices and the tones of mint in the lavender. This delicious olive oil blends more flavors together, than any other.
This Herbes de Provence Sicilian Extra Virgin Olive Oil is also amazing when paired with our Roasted Garlic White Balsamic or our Traditional Balsamic Vinegar. The light sweet taste of our white balsamic, imbued with this savory oil, makes it a phenomenal choice for pairing. Combine the two for dipping fresh baked bread, flavoring grilled or roasted vegetables such as asparagus. The combination is also a mouth watering addition to meats, chicken, salads and pastas. The Traditional Balsamic is a good pairing choice as well. While it is not as light as the white balsamic, it does not have any herbs competing with the many flavors, layers and tones of the Herbes de Provence. Between the delectable flavor and antioxidant and micronutrient rich health benefits, you can’t go wrong with our Herbes de Provence Sicilian Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
