whitebalsamicLots has been written by foodistas about the blasphemy of white balsamic vinegars.  but the Cuisinettes think that  the Prelibato white balsamic vinegar produced by Acetaia Malpighi will make you happily ignore them. This firm carefully crushes the best part of the “Trebbiano Modenese” grape, so that  the juice  is  transparent and filtered. Then it is centrifuged to make it dense without the normal cooking process for balsamic condimenti (the Italian term) Then, it is aged in ash barrels for 5 years. The Malpighi family decided to use the ash instead of other woods, as it gives this vinegar a delicate color and aroma.  figbalsamic

It makes a divine mignonette  for oysters, puts a zip into bechamel sauce, can be used for any salad using fruit or seafood. When you stop by today, we have the Prelibato Fig Balsamic, Apple Balsamic and Orange Balsamic vinegars for you to taste and purchase at the same  20% discount as well

We are out of your area?  No problem: today you can purchase  all the Prelibato vinegars online or by calling our toll free number 1 800 521 1176. Today only.

July 01, 2017 - TWO ALL AMERICAN OLIVE OILS FOR YOU TO TRY BEFORE JULY 4

We looked back on our olive oil tastings and realized we had never showcased our two selections of olive oils from California. Larissa frequently tasted ones from California and found that they often tried to  be like the Italian peppery and herbaceous ones, rather than capitalize on what the California soil, climate and olive groves can showcase.   sequoia

Larissa recently picked up an unusual organic one.  It is called Sequoia Gold and is a unique blend of Arbequina and Arbosana olives.  Somehow the producers developed a soft olive oil that leaves you with an aftertaste of....tea! And we mean a lovely taste of tea leaves, not tea bags. 

oliosantOur long-time choice of a unique (and not too expensive) olive has been Olio Santo from Stonehouse California Olive Oil.  We have featured it in our shop and website since its inception 20 years ago. And it is one that Ina Garten loves and included it on her pantry list.   It is mild and fruity, makes a nice dipping oil and plays well with others.  

We'll have both open for tasting with a 20% discount.  If you are not in our neighborhood and want these olive oils at this price, simply call our toll free number (1-800 521 1176) and place an order for in store pick-up or shipped to you.  We cannot offer this discount on our website.  

We can also special order case lots of this olive oil at a further discount.  Contact us for a price quote.
