oil and vinegar

I recently received a beautiful collection of hand crafted olive oils and vinegars from my sister-in-law.  She and my brother live in one of the most beautiful towns on the east coast.  And in this little town is a fabulous little shop by the name of Gustare. Catherine & Dave Ferraresi opened Gustare in 2009  after living in Europe for 10 years.  Gustare translates from Italian to mean, "to taste, to enjoy, to savour" and their products certainly invite one to do so.  They arrived in a beautiful gift box, but didn't stay there long.  I've already used both of the balsamics and was so impressed by their pairings.  The Espresso Balsamic is a beautiful combination with a rich tangy balsamic base that just briefly finishes with a zip of espresso. It's much like finishing a rich meal with a shot of espresso to relieve your tastebuds (and keep you from falling asleep after a big meal). 

I'm going to use the White Truffle Olive Oil on my roasted cauliflower for dinner tonight. Recipe to follow later this afternoon!

Buon Appetito!
