Tuscany is known for its beautiful landscapes, its rich artistic legacy and vast influence on high culture. Tuscany is widely regarded as the true birthplace of the Italian Renaissance, in its capital, Florence. And, of greatest relevance to us, Tuscany has a unique culinary tradition, and is famous for its wines.
The essence of Tuscan cuisine is simplicity. Legumes, bread, cheese, vegetables, mushrooms and fresh fruit are used. And, of course, olive oil. Our Tuscan Herb olive oil captures the flavor - and the philosophy - of Tuscan cooking. A delicious blend of Italian herbs, sundried tomatoes and garlic infused olive oil, Tuscan Herb is what I think the Italian countryside tastes like.
This versatile olive oil lends itself well to all kinds of jobs in the kitchen: Tuscan Herb olive oil makes a flavorful bread dip [all the taste of the herbs, without the bits and chunks], and a tremendous base for a grilling marinade. The buttery taste of our Tuscan Herb olive oil and a handful of coarsely grated Parmesan is all you need to finish a dish of fresh pasta.
Tuscan Herb olive oil is dreamy as the foundation of a salad dressing. Recommended pairings: any of our balsamic vinegars, really, but Fig Balsamic vinegar is an especially nice match for a richly flavored vinaigrette.
