Milanese Gremolata Infused Olive Oil
The cuisine of Milan is noted for rich main dishes - meats or poultry coated with flour or bread crumbs and browned in hot oil or butter, and for pasta in a flavorful sauce of tomatoes, mushrooms, grated cheese, shredded meat, and truffles: spaghetti Milanese.
Another quintessential, and contrasting, flavor of Milanese cooking is liberal application of Gremolata, a traditional Italian herb condiment of fresh lemon zest, garlic, flat-leaf parsley, and mint, crushed with a mortar and pestle to release the light and aromatic flavors.
These fresh and vibrant flavors are captured in our new Milanese Gremolata-Infused Olive Oil, a delicious olive oil with a hint of garlic, citrus, and parsley. This tasty combination makes Milanese Gremolata Olive Oil a marvelous finishing oil on roasted or grilled fish, is a perfect partner for sautéing seasonal vegetables, and pairs with our Violet Balsamic or Oregano White Balsamic for a savory marinade, light dressing, or sauce.
A drizzle of Milanese Gremolata Olive Oil complements winter soups, or toss a spoonful with simple rice or pasta for an easy side dish. Adds a fresh taste to all sorts of Italian recipes, and is our new favorite dipping oil for fresh bread.
