Find the Real Deal at Heavenly Olive Oils & Vinegars
I come from a long line of bad cooks. While each generation improves slightly over the previous, we have a long way to go. Since discovering Heavenly Olive Oils & Vinegars and using them, I’ve attained “good cook” status with my family. And it happened simply, without any fuss or complicated classes. Just like Julia says.
The olive oil industry has gotten some bad press lately. What you find in grocery stores is not the same as what owners Mindy and Steve Anderson sell in their specialty shop. They compare those products with hot dogs: “You never know what you’re going to get.”
Heavenly’s extra virgin olive oils (EVOO) are ultra premium, meaning higher quality with much higher standards in every detail (trucks are only allowed to be half full when transporting, olives are picked same day they’re crushed, supplier tests oils for purity before buying and inspects fields personally, etc.) Their pure balsamics (10 calories per tablespoon) are from Modena, Italy, aged up to 18 years with no added preservatives, sugar or additives.
Three types of olive oils fill the pretty stainless steel fustis lining their shelves: natural unflavored, fused and infused. Fused = Flavors are attained by crushing a whole fruit simultaneously with the olives, “fusing” them together. Other stores sell flavored oils created with extract flavorings. Infused = An EVOO produced by adding herbs and spices, the oil taking on the flavor through the infusion process.
Cooking with and eating these quality products make you want to eat healthy because it tastes so good. They can show you how to transform even kale from bitter to amazing. You must go in and taste for yourself. They’ll guide you through, and make it fun.
