marino.evoo.jpg Marino Novello Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil 2013 (Sicily, Italy)

Made in the prestigious Monte Iblei zone of southeastern Sicily, Marino's Novello Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil contains 100% Tonda Iblea olives. Early harvested, and 100% organic, this hand-harvested EVOO is made in small quantities. We only get 24 bottles a year!

The annual tasting of freshly pressed olive oil is a generations old tradition in Italy. Green olives are harvested in late December, just in time for the holidays. Unlike other olive oils, these novello (meaning new or fresh in Southern Italy; in Northern Italy they use the term nuovo) extra virgin olive oils do not spend any time in a settling tank, yielding an unfiltered and zesty olive oil. One must taste these truly fresh extra virgin olive oils and experience their fabulous vibrancy in order to understand why food loving Italians look forward to the yearly novello release!

This very special EVOO has earned the Marino family an outstanding rating by the 2010 Slow Food Guide to Extra Virgin Olive Oils.

The olives are grown and harvested at Marino's estate in Italy.

500 milliliter (16.8 fluid ounce) glass bottles

cambados_squid_ink.jpg Tinta de Calamar - Squid Ink (Conservas de Cambados) Jar

In the Mediterranean, squid ink is used in many recipes: Paella, risotto, black rice, soup, pasta, and of course Chipirones en su Tinta (squid in its own ink). It is also regularly included in seafood stews. In Italian cooking, it is used to prepare spaghetti al nero di seppia.

Squid ink contains numerous amino acids and polysaccharides, so in addition to being delicious in recipes, it is also known to have many health benefits including treating depression.

Yes this squid ink is the same ink that they squirt at their attackers in order to escape.

Conservas de Cambados is based in Galicia in Northeast Spain. This is the region of the Arousa Ría, which is well-known not just for its size, but also for the richness of its marine life.

Ingredients: cuttlefish ink, water, and salt.

3.2 ounce (90 gram) glass jar.

Le-Creuset-Chefs-Apron_red.gif Le Creuset Chef's Apron (Red)

Unfortunately this is the last year Le Creuset is making this apron. We bought all they had. Once they are gone, they are gone. Grab one for yourself NOW, before it is too late.

We have never seen a higher quality apron anywhere!!

Mom and dad both have one. I keep 4 in my own personal kitchen: one for me, and 3 for when friends are over cooking and grilling.


  • 100% Cotton Canvas
  • Stain resistant
  • Treated with Teflon Fabric Protector from Dupont
  • Resists ripping and tearing
  • Generous size for maximum protection
  • Fits men and women of all sizes
  • Straps for securely tying apron in place during use
  • Adjustable neck-strap for added comfort
  • Deep front and side pockets
  • Fabric loop to store a hand cloth

The grommets are metal, so you never see the tearing associated with other aprons when you pull the waist strap secure.

The top white strap across the waist is how you wrap it around yourself and tie off. The bottom is already secured in place, creating 4 separate, deep pockets. Plus an extra loop for a dishtowel.

Our favorite apron. Perfect for men and women.

Prices includes FREE SHIPPING to you
