PREPA­RA­TION OR PAIRINGS

Frisino‚Äôs medi¬≠um fruity EVOO is best used for white meat dish¬≠es, from baked chick¬≠en breasts to large fil¬≠lets of grilled fish. It also goes per¬≠fect¬≠ly with saut√©ed veg¬≠eta¬≠bles and cap¬≠rese sal¬≠ad. This oil is your go-to for fin¬≠ish¬≠ing bruschet¬≠ta or for mak¬≠ing your very own oil dips.

The intense¬≠ly fruity vari¬≠ant, on the oth¬≠er hand, works mar¬≠vels with lighter-tast¬≠ing fare like legume or veg¬≠etable soups, grilled steaks‚ÄČ‚ÄĒ‚ÄČsuch as our Chilled Sher Wagyu Striploin‚ÄĒand roast¬≠ed veg¬≠eta¬≠bles. It‚Äôs also great for a sal¬≠ad toss and for driz¬≠zling on crudit√©s.

THE HEEL OF ITAL­IAN OLIVE OIL PRODUCTION

Puglia is home to around 60 mil¬≠lion olive trees, some of them exist¬≠ing long before Italy became the coun¬≠try it is today. Over 50 vari¬≠eties (cul¬≠ti¬≠vars) exist there side by side. This region sup¬≠plies about 40 per¬≠cent of the olive oil in Italy and about 12 per¬≠cent of the oil for the whole world, so it is no sur¬≠prise that EVOO plays a star¬≠ring role in almost all their dish¬≠es. As refin¬≠ery own¬≠ers in this sto¬≠ried region, the Frisi¬≠no fam¬≠i¬≠ly hand-picks all their olives, ensur¬≠ing the best qual¬≠i¬≠ty from tree to bottle.

Storage Instructions

Olive oil should be stored in a cool, dry, dark cup¬≠board, away from the heat and light. Choose a spot in the kitchen that‚Äôs away from the oven. The best tem¬≠per¬≠a¬≠ture for stor¬≠ing oil is from 13 to 21¬įC.
