We've been in foodie-love with Bari Olive Oil Co. for awhile now (they made KC's Top Ten list 2 years ago, next to Nutella & Peppadew peppers. Here's a link to her current Top Ten list.) When they told us they'd created new products, we had to taste them!
The Sawatzky family's Bari Olive Oils are all hand-made in small quantities from late season Mission & Manzanilla olives grown in Central California. We love their commitment to quality, customer service and family.
Bari expanded their line of Flavor Infused Oils, and all of their flavors are Gluten Free. We were already fans of the Basil & Orange oils - but now we're evenly divided over the Chipotle & Jalapeno flavors. (Team Chipotle is pretty sure they'd win in a kitchen-throwdown, just FYI.)
KC used Bari's unique Tandori Masala oil in another attempt to recreate the Tomato-Chicken-Curry from her favorite childhood Chinese restaurant, and although she's not happy yet, the rest of us ate it up. (If she ever gets happy with that recipe, we'll share it. In fact, we'll probably have a Tomato-Chicken-Curry party in the middle of Times Square to mark the occasion.) We liked the fun Indian-inspired spice blend, and we think it would be perfect for sauteing or grilling vegetables.
We're all fans of Bari's Fig Balsamic Vinegar, but we're ready to order a truckload of their Blackberry Vanilla Balsamic. We'd tell you to order some now, but we want to make sure we get ours first - so give us a minute. It's our new secret weapon for chicken, vinaigrette & strawberries. Get some Blackberry Vanilla Balsamic, and then you can thank us (we're thinking caramelized onions or balsamic jam, let us know if you need our shipping address.)
