Gourmet Oil and Vinegar

Gourmet Oil and Vinegar

Cooking with Drizzle of oil and vinegar

oil drizzlerOil and vinegar drizzle condiments have increased in popularity every year. Fine quality olive oil and aged balsamic vinegar are not only extraordinary culinary tastes to be drizzled over numerous recipes, but laboratory research have now indicated oil and vinegar are also healthy additions to your diet. A sharp increase in interest of olive oil health benefits has placed the Mediterranean Diet at the forefront of discussion for many food professionals. Attributes such as Cholesterol free, high in antioxidants, Heart healthy, no trans fats, no partially hydrogenated, are welcome news to many of us. We have seen a profusion of delicious gourmet oils and assorted tastes come to market. Black truffle oils, white truffle oils, grapeseed oil, infused oils, and unfiltered oils abound. There are Herbs de Provence, garlic, avocado, walnut, sesame, flavored and blended oils, just waiting for you to drizzle. Gourmet recipes call for unfiltered first press French, Greek or Spanish Extra Virgin Olive Oil. It has been recommended to cook with quality cooking oils like rice bran oil, canola oil, or coconut oil. ‘Drizzle oil’ and ‘Drizzle over’ is a staple cooking term or method that is no longer vague to the nominal cook, in fact, it is now very ‘in-vogue.’ Oil drizzlers are becoming more common in the gourmet kitchen.

Along with the vast selections of gourmet oils we also enjoy gourmet vinegars that are incredibly pleasing to the palate. Flavored vinegars such as Raspberry vinegars, wine vinegars, sherry vinegar, white balsamic, and the exquisite Italian balsamic vinegars are now readily available. Modena balsamico, and AcetoTradizionale are becoming more understood and relished. Traditional balsamic vinegars and seasonings have been regarded as excellent flavor enhancers for hundreds of years. Chefs advise fine imported balsamic vinegar should be selected upon taste, aroma, color, and intended purpose. Consequently ‘Drizzle vinegar’ and ‘drizzle balsamic’ have also become normal cooking and serving nomenclature. Kitchen oil drizzlers are now being designed for the proper serving of oil and vinegar.

If you are an avid cook and enjoy the new culinary world of oil and vinegar, consider dispensing your fine condiments in glass drizzle cruets for perfect drizzle flow, free from oil and vinegar drips down the bottle or on the table. Most chefs prefer using dispensing cruets rather than pour directly from a vinegar or an olive oil bottle. Oil drizzler bottles are becoming popular selections for unique kitchen gifts.
