Savor three extraordinary flavors with this gift set from the Lucero family, producers of olive oil in Northern California for three generations. It includes two award-winning varieties of their extra-virgin olive oil, made from olives grown near the Lucero mill and cold pressed within hours of harvesting, and a fig balsamic vinegar from Modena, Italy.
Sevillano Extra-Virgin Olive Oil: Sevillano olives are a Mediterranean variety that has flourished in California's Tehama County for nearly 100 years. This unique olive oil has a fruity, delicate flavor with hints of apricot and banana combined with an earthy quality and a soft, smooth finish. Enjoy its distinctive flavor on salads and pasta dishes.
Manzanillo Extra-Virgin Olive Oil: An assertive olive oil with a robust aroma, strong olive fruit flavor and peppery finish. Excellent for bread dipping when paired with balsamic vinegar.
Fig Balsamic Vinegar: This is a true Italian balsamic crafted in Modena, but with lower acid and higher sugar for American palates. Enjoy its smooth, nutty flavor for deglazing meats and for drizzling over Gouda or aged cheddar cheese, fresh fruit and salads, even ice cream.
