Three to five weeks into social isolation, depending on where you live, we should all be proud that we care enough to protect not just ourselves, but others, by staying at home and following CDC guidelines when venturing out.
Even so, being cooped up is not easy. Here’s hoping that all of you managed to connect with family and friends as you celebrated Easter and Passover. Seeing the comfort people experienced in finding creative ways to come together during these holidays made Kimber, Kate, and I begin to wonder if, in the coming weeks, we could help people connect in some small way. Of course, it was our wonderfully supportive customers who gave us an idea.
Many have reached out to us looking for creative recipes and ideas for using our olive oil and balsamic vinegars. We have lots of favorites, but you have many more. So if you have a family-friendly recipe, some great ideas for those of us living alone, or a vegetarian delight that you would like to share, send it to us and we’ll share it with all of our friends who are trying to stay healthy and serve delicious meals during this stressful time.
A Few of My Favorites
My following contribution is not exactly a recipe, but a sharing of easily adaptable ideas for quick meals. Anyone who knows me, knows that I love our Spicy Blend Olive Oil. Its combination of garlic, rosemary, Italian pepperoncini, and Parmigiano-Reggiano make it mildly spicy and flavorful enough to enhance almost any meal.
We’re looking forward to sharing your recipes and tips and we’ll be sharing more of ours. Thanks to all of you for supporting A Taste of Olive with your online orders. Your support validates our commitment to high quality and distinctive flavors. Stay healthy!
