Average rating:

The Castillo de Canena Estate has produced exceptional extra virgin olive oils in the Guadalquivir Valley of Andalusia in the south of Spain since 1780. This exceptional smoked oil is artisanally crafted by slowly infusing their high quality, hand-harvested, Castillo Arbequina Extra Virgin Olive Oil with naturally produced smoke from a mix of organic oak, beech, and birch woods. When you open the bottle you will smell, and taste, exquisitely smoked Arbequina with undertones of caramel, vanilla, and toffee. This unique oil is divine on its own, or you can pair it with your favorite recipes to add a smoky component to your dressings, marinades, and final dishes.

  • Brush it on bread, or just dip the bread right in.
  • Drizzle it on:
    • Vegetables.
    • Seafood, poultry, and meats.
    • Soup.
  • Use it to make a smoky hummus.
  • Pair it with your favorite vinegar for a smoky, delicious dressing or marinade.

In order to produce this wonderful, exquisite, cutting-edge cold smoked extra virgin olive oil, Castillo de Canena designed a unique process. Their burner allows the wood chips to slowly smolder. The smoke is then cooled, and passed through a water filter. They then slowly, over the course of 6 hours, release the cold smoke into the bottom of the tank which holds the Arbequina Extra Virgin Olive Oil. This artisanal process naturally imparts the smoky flavor and aroma into the oil.

  • Special blue bottles protect the extra virgin olive oil from harmful light.
  • No preservatives or artificial flavors.
  • This product contains no soy, gluten, nuts, dairy, or genetically engineered ingredients.

Produced and bottled by Castillo de Canena with olives grown, harvested, and pressed at the Castillo de Canena Estate in Spain.

Villa Manodori Aceto Balsamico of Modena “Artigianale”
Villa Manodori Aceto Balsamico of Modena “Artigianale” Be the first one to write a review

Villa Manodori Aceto Balsamico (authentic balsamic vinegar) “Artigianale” is a carefully crafted labor of love from Chef Massimo Bottura, owner of three-star Michelin restaurant Osteria Francescana in Modena, Italy. Made in the tradizionale style and produced in limited quantities, the condiment is a combination of traditional balsamic and aged red wine vinegars. Maturing for a decade or more in barrels of oak, chestnut and juniper, the vinegar develops a shiny ebony color, pleasant woody aroma, raisin-sweet, tart taste and maple syrup texture. A true original, this versatile condiment is enjoyed as an alternative to precious traditional balsamic.

2001 Award - Winner Outstanding Vinegar at the Fancy Food Show

Drizzle this Balsamic Vinegar on:

  • grilled or roasted asparagus, vegetables or potatoes
  • hard Italian cheeses
  • strawberries and ice cream
  • Just a few drops to finish a caprese salad really makes this already wonderful dish incredible.

Add a hint of lemon to any recipe by using this naturally-flavored sugar instead of white granulated sugar. We love it on sugar cookies, lemon pound cake, fresh fruit, yogurt, ice cream, crepes, waffles, pancakes, and stirred into a nice hot cup of tea. You can also use this to rim glasses for a lemon drop martini, tropical fruit punch, or other cocktail.

Demerara sugar is a large grain, unrefined sugar made from sugar cane. Minimal processing during production gives this sugar a unique flavor and texture. It is used in baking, and as a sweetener in tea, coffee, and other beverages. The large, crunchy grains, are also perfect sprinkled on top of cookies, oatmeal, and anything else where you want a sweet crunch.

Quai Sud is at the forefront of innovative and sustainable gourmet products and packaging. They offer a variety of quality gourmet products from around the world. Their beautiful eco-friendly packaging is just an indication of the wonderful product inside!

Product of France.

Ingredients: unrefined cane sugar from Reunion, lemon zest, citric acid, natural lemon flavor.
