There is nothing like mixing it up and having had the opportunity to try the miniature olive oil and vinegar selection boxes from Il Gusto I have mastered the art of each and every conceivable selection of oils & Vinegar for my salad dressings.
This worked particularly well for group gatherings and entertaining as it added a little theatre to the table allowing my guests mix and match to their heart’s desire.
Il Gusto works with quality producers from around the world to source delicious oils, vinegar, spirits, liqueurs and wines. They offer a unique pick and mix approach allowing customers to not only choose the product but also the style of the bottle it is presented in.
Il Gusto also offers an eco-friendly refill service which means that empty bottles can be refilled. You simply take your clean empty bottle back to one of their stores and their staff will be happy to help you.
My selection included the following:
Oil Gift Set – containing Eight bottles of 40ml
Extra Virgin Olive Oil “LASITHI” – Organic
Extra Virgin Olive Oil with Truffle
Extra Virgin Olive Oil with Basil
Extra Virgin Olive Oil with Lemon
Vinegar Gift Set – containing Eight bottles of 40ml
Their premium balsamic and fruit balsamic vinegar are made by a third-generation producer in Modena to the traditional method. Refined in oak barrels and created with grapes from their own vineyards, the vinegar is completely natural, free of additives, colouring and thickeners – making sure you have the highest quality taste experience. There are over 25 exciting flavours available,
Mango Balsam Vinegar
Date Balsam Vinegar
Calamansi Balsam Vinegar
Apple Balsam Vinegar
Raspberry Balsam Vinegar
Tomato & Basil Balsam Vinegar
Caramelised Onion Balsam Vinegar
Aceto Balsamico IGP “Vintage”
Whilst their fruit balsamic vinegar is the perfect condiment to savoury dishes, they can also be used to balance the sweetness of desserts. Try adding a splash of Aged Balsamic to a bowl of fresh berries and see for yourself how the sweet flavour of the fruit is enhanced.
