If you cannot get enough of extra virgin olive oil, Italy's liquid gold, you will love flavor infused olive oil. Flavored olive oil is an artisanal and delicious way to elevate any meal. As spectacular as pure olive oil can be, some occasions call for something a little more unique. Flavored cooking oils can add decadent and distinct aroma and flavor to any dish, from risotto to pizza and salad. Flavored oils can also be enjoyed on their own with a bit of crusty bread. It is also an affordable option for chefs who want to use luxurious ingredients like truffles without breaking the bank.
What are some types of flavor infused olive oils?
There are countless varieties of flavored olive oil to choose from, but we have developed a few favorites. Citrus olive oils such as lemon and orange are excellent if you’re looking to spruce up a serving of prawn risotto, pasta primavera, or spring greens. For a spicy kick, drizzle chili pepper oil on pizza, focaccia,pasta, and grilled fish. Best for last, a bottle of truffle oil is sure to delight the palate. At Supermarket Italy, both white and black truffle versions are available, and both add a delicate yet pungent flavor and intoxicating aroma to any dish. Toss truffle flavored oil with roast potatoes and parmesan, drizzle it over a mushroom pizza, or serve with your favorite charcuterie meats and cheeses.
