Where you shop DOES make a difference!

We always want to make sure you have the best possible price, every single day, on every single item. This means that every day we take the time to shop our competitors and price compare. What I found incredible today was something I wanted to share with you, and it isn't about price.... it is about

Quality

First, the food world is a very small place overall. There are a few handfuls of importers who bring in the majority of the products you see. We're talking dozens here, not hundreds. So every single retailer starts with the same source for identical products. So you would think that all you need to do is price compare and you'll be fine. WRONG!

I saw a review over on a competitor's website, and the customer gave ZERO out of 5 stars for a product, calling it "awful, rancid, had to spit it out" and further went on to affirm "I know my food, am a connoisseur of olive oils, and this was terrible". I carry this olive oil, I use it myself weekly. So I go through, in my own kitchen, a bottle every 4-6 weeks. I have NEVER had such an experience with any bottle from this importer. It is one of the freshest, most vibrant, gorgeous olive oils on the market today. So what is going on?

SIMPLE in my mind. This connoisseur went to an incredibly well known online retailer more famous for selling books than food. And I would guess they treat books, food, lawn furniture and everything else all the same: warm warehouses, large pallets sitting around for weeks, months, multiple months, waiting to be purchased. FOOD should be CARED FOR. Olive oils don't like heat, don't like light, do not like being "old" and should be consumed within a year of harvest/bottling.

In short, it does not surprise me that the review of this fabulous olive oil at that other site was negative. I'm guessing that bottle sat and sat, was exposed to heat and light and was the better part of a year old before it ever got to the consumer. I saw other products that were "sold by" and listed another 3rd party vendor. REALLY? How many hands should your purchase pass through, how many chances for someone to put your box on a hot loading dock, to let it sit around for a while, should you really tolerate? This is what you want to cook with, feed yourself, your family and your friends. You put it into your body!! Don't you deserve the best kept, freshest, tastiest product you can get your hands on?

Unfortunately, this is not limited to just online stores either. I have bought from a very famous brick and mortar store here in my own city and have had many oxidized, rancid oils from nut oils to extra virgin olive oils. I have no idea how long they sat in the stockroom, or on the shelf, but certainly they were exposed to some very very bad conditions like heat and light.

Here at Gourmet-Delights.com we order in small quantities, enough to sell through in 2-4 weeks, and then we reorder. Things do not sit around, they are not exposed to heat or light. We care for our products, respect the need, the desire, to have every item arrive in your hands in the FRESHEST possible condition.

It DOES matter where you buy, not only because you want to get the best possible price, but because you DESERVE the best, freshest, tastiest product when it shows up on your doorstep. We promise to only sell the freshest, well kept, food products we can find, and back that up with a "no questions asked" guarantee for a 100% refund, or immediate replacement, if a product does not meet and exceed your expectations.

As Julia Child reminds us time and again, fresh, high quality ingredients make all the difference!

Belazu Organic Argan Oil
Belazu Organic Argan Oil Be the first one to write a review

A unique oil with a mildly toasted, nutty flavor. It is known as "the golden oil."

The Argan tree is unique to the South Western corner of Morocco and is called the "tree of life" due to the importance of this tree, and its fruit and oil, to Moroccan traditions and culture. This remarkable organic Argan oil is made by cold pressing the seeds inside the nut of the Argan fruit. It takes 100 kilograms (220 pounds) of fruit to produce just 1 liter (33.8 fluid ounces) of oil, meaning it is an extremely labor intensive oil to produce.

Once the fruit ripens, it is harvested and laid out in the sun to dry. The flesh of the fruit is removed, and the hard shell of the nut is cracked to remove the almond shaped kernels inside. These are gently toasted and, once cooled, ground in a stone ‘rotary quern’, similar to a stone pestle and mortar. The resulting nut paste is then massaged by hand to extract the luscious oil.

Rich in Vitamin E and linoleic acids, and with a high unsaturated fatty acid content (over 80%), this unique organic Argan oil is full of health-giving properties. Vitamin E promotes healthy hair, skin, and nails, and the unsaturated fatty acids are great for keeping the heart healthy and lowering cholesterol levels. Initial tests indicate it may reverse the metabolic changes that occur from a high sugar diet, thus being a natural aid in the fight against diabetes; and the high levels of antioxidants show promise in fighting cancer. It is light in color with a reddish tinge and it is milder in flavor than sesame or walnut oil, yet its taste is distinctly nutty. Traditionally used for cooking tagines and dressing couscous, organic Argan oil also adds a unique and wonderful flavor to salads and other North African dishes.

A few serving ideas:

  • Mix organic Argan oil with honey and yogurt like the Berbers do for a nutritious breakfast.
  • Make amlou: a mixture of Argan oil, honey, and crushed almonds. It tastes a little like peanut butter and is great on toast.
    • 1/2 pound roasted Marcona Almonds
    • 1/2 to 2/3 cup Belazu Organic Argan Oil
    • 1/3 cup raw honey
    • In a food processor, or mortar and pestle, finely grind the almonds. Add the Organic Argan Oil a tablespoon at a time. Now add the honey until the desired sweetness is achieved. Serve in a small bowl with slices of pita bread for dipping

This organic Argan oil is suitable for vegans, vegetarians, and is gluten-free.

Rural Moroccans always knew Argan oil was good for you, inside and out. They actually rub their faces with their hands after eating a couscous dressed with Argan oil. In the spirit of that tradition, we can also recommend it for its beauty uses!! Since this oil is organic AND "food grade" it is higher in quality than those other "cosmetic grade" oils on the market today.

This product may not be suitable for nut allergy sufferers.

Packed in France from Moroccan oil.

Pure Almond Oil (J. Leblanc)
Pure Almond Oil (J. Leblanc) Be the first one to write a review

J. Leblanc has changed little since 1878, the year it was founded. It is still run by a Leblanc, Jean-Charles, grandson of the founder. It is still located in the southern most village of Burgundy, Iguerande, and it still manufactures the highest quality, small-batch, handcrafted nut oils in France.... if not the world.

J. Leblanc starts with the careful selection of the absolute highest quality whole nuts available, grown on many of the same farms that J. Leblanc has been doing business with for generations. For each batch of oil about fifty-four pounds of nuts are ground into a paste using the huilerie's original granite mill. In order to guarantee an even roast, this paste is constantly stirred in a roaster for 10 minutes. The roasted paste is then transferred to a mechanical press where it is divided in half and separated with filter cloth. The oil is expressed at 22,000 pounds of mechanical pressure. After pressing, the oil rests from seven-to-fourteen days to allow the sediment to settle before bottling. This is a labor, and time, intensive process which produces only 300 liters a day. These nut oils are pure, unadulterated, unfiltered, and unrefined.

J. Leblanc nut oils are made to order.

One of the most important facts about Huilerie Leblanc's production is not the "how" but the "when". Since Huilerie Leblanc does not have large storage facilities, or refining capabilities, production takes place when orders come in - guaranteeing the freshest nut oils delivered to your door. It's not only a difference you can taste - in their clean, bright, and deep flavors, but also extends their longevity by up to a year.

In the United States, J. Leblanc is finding its way to renowned restaurants like The French Laundry, Mandalay Bay, Delfina, Campanelli, One Market, 231 Ellis, and Hawthorn Lane to name a few!

  • Nut oils can be used for salad dressings with quality vinegar such as champagne, Banyuls, sherry, or raspberry. The usual ratio is three parts oil to one part vinegar.

Please refrigerate J. Leblanc nut oils after opening.

"Acquerello is the Rolls Royce of rice." - Alain Ducasse

"Acquerello is one of the very last authentic products." - Frédy Girardet

Acquerello is the rice grown, aged, whitened, and packed in Italy on the Colombara farm by the Rondolino family.

It is the ultimate rice: first the unhusked rough rice is aged to perfection for at least one year, then it is whitened slowly using "The Helix" where grains rub gently one against the other, and finally it is restored with its most precious element, the embryo or germ. This re-enrichment of the refined rice with its germ restores the most valuable nutrients of brown rice.

Known as the "king" or the "caviar" of Italian rices, Carnaroli is the preferred risotto rice in most regions of Italy. Acquerello Carnaroli rice is classified as "Extra rice" for its quality. In order to preserve its characteristics perfectly, Acquerello rice is vacuum sealed in unique enameled tins.

Carnaroli rice keeps its shape better than other forms of rice during the slow cooking required for making risotto. For instance, Arborio rice is widely available, and sometimes suggested, for risotto. We are not fans of Arborio for risotto. Compared to Arborio, Carnaroli rice has a smaller grain size, and higher starch content. This means Carnaroli can absorb larger amounts of liquid, and thus flavor, from the wine and broth, without overcooking. So your risotto is more flavorful when you use Carnaroli rice. Also, the higher starch content in Carnaroli rice guarantees an ultra-creamy texture that is the hallmark of a superior risotto.

Acquerello's grains stay perfectly intact, absorb flavors exceptionally well, do not bind together, and do not lose starch, proteins, or vitamins. Therefore your risotto is fully consistent, tasty, creamy, and not sticky. Acquerello risotto will always be outstanding.

Acquerello is used in the finest restaurants around the world:

  • The French Laundry, USA (Thomas Keller)
  • Osteria Francescana, Italy (Massimo Bottura)
  • Troisgros, France (Michael Troisgros)
  • The Fat Duck, England (Heston Blumenthal)

The Carnaroli rice cultivated at Colombara, being the only variety sown since 1997, is 100% pure and therefore produces uncontaminated Carnaroli seeds.

Once you have tried it, you will never look back!

Aji amarillo, or amarillo chili, is the most common type of aji and is one of the most important ingredients in Peruvian cooking. It has a heat level of 7 on a scale of 10 (50,000 Scoville units). It is great in combination with meat, poultry, fish, vegetables, pasta, and rice dishes, and is used to season nuts.

The unique flavor of the Aji Amarillo makes it worth seeking out and incorporating into your cooking. Even though it is a "chili pepper" it has a lot of fruitiness combined with its heat. It is a very versatile chili that will complement your dish without overwhelming it.

One of Modena's most distinguished Balsamic vinegar manufacturers produces this delicate condiment which blends white grape must with white wine vinegar. A condiment rather than a vinegar because of its low acidity, the White Balsamic follows the standard methods of Balsamic Vinegar production. The white grape must is cooked at low temperatures in a vacuum to avoid darkening the blend before it is matured in a series of wooden oak casks.

Fleur de Sel Sea Salt by M. Gilles Hervy

Average rating:

In a mild mini-climate near the town of Guèrande in the cultural region of Brittany, France there are centuries old salt fields. In this unique location the currents of the Atlantic run cleaner than in many of the other salt harvesting regions of France. As a result, Guèrande produces the best salt in all of France.

On warm, breezy afternoons from May to September, an artisan paludier (craftsman salt harvester) like Gilles Hervy can "sweep" the crystallized top of the evaporating sea water. This harvested salt, the Fleur de Sel, is the most delicate, purest part of the saline. What remains and crystallizes throughout the rest of the season is the Sel Gris. For every 80 pounds of Sel Gris produced, they can harvest only one pound of the precious Fleur de Sel.

Fleur de Sel is an all-natural sea salt from Brittany, France. It is unprocessed, unrefined, and unadulterated. It does not contain anti-caking or anti-flowing agents. It is known as the "Caviar of Salts".

The Gilles Hervy family (husband, wife, two sons, and a daughter) sells the best, most consistent quality Fleur de Sel in the world.

Salish is a fine grain sea salt that is cold smoked over real Northwest red alderwood to give a clean, natural smoky flavor. No artificial flavors, colors, or liquid smoke is used to create this beautiful salt.

Salish refers to a cultural or ethnographic designation of a subgroup of the First Nations or Native American cultures in British Columbia, Washington, and Oregon who speak one of the Coast Salish languages. As the first inhabitants of the Pacific Northwest, they have used the red alderwood of the Northwest to smoke meats and salmon for hundreds of years. We are proud to be able to bring to you this salt, created in the ancient Northwest smoking tradition.

Salish gives food a genuine smokehouse taste on or off the BBQ.

The ultimate for cooking fish, chicken, or steak. We love it on salmon, fresh avocado slices, creamy pasta dishes, and it is great in soups!

The Savini family business is world famous for their truffles. Since the 1920s, the family tradition of handcrafted truffle products has passed down over four generations.

The truffles are individually selected by Luciano and Cristiano Savini. They are personally out with the truffle hunters in the heart of Tuscany so they can guarantee the highest quality and ensure the origin of each and every truffle. The production of truffle products, like this exceptional truffle butter, is then carried out using traditional methods and solely at the request of the importer. This guarantees both the freshness of the product and the 'shelf life'. Every jar shows a "best by" date so you know you are getting the freshest butter available. Large visible pieces of real truffle are in every jar.

  • Start your day off with a perfectly cooked egg and some truffle butter.
  • Put it on hot baked potatoes, mashed potatoes, and french fries.
  • Place a spoonful on your hot steak and watch it explode with truffle flavor.
  • A little bit with seared or grilled scallops is otherworldly.
  • Truffle butter for lobster? ABSOLUTELY!
  • Add a heaping teaspoon to your risotto 5 minutes before it is done to make truffle risotto!
  • Toast some bread, spread some truffle butter on it, add a touch of grated parmesan cheese, and serve as an appetizer.
  • Mix together an egg yolk, a teaspoon of truffle butter, copious amounts of grated parmesan cheese, and two teaspoons of extra virgin olive oil as a sauce for pasta.

The most wonderful small sardines in olive oil we have ever tasted come from the Estuaries of Galicia, Spain. This is a true Spanish food gem and we are very pleased to be able to offer it to you.

Rich in vitamins D and B12, they are also an excellent source of calcium and omega-3 fatty acids.

The Spanish believe canned seafood is a delicacy to be shared and enjoyed! They take great pride, and great care, to harvest the best seafood and package it with the utmost care. The result is the purest, most delicate, and exquisite tasting seafood on the planet! A true delicacy.

Do NOT be fooled by other sardines. Conservas de Cambados makes a "Gourmet" line, which is their highest quality, and the ONLY ones we sell. "Gourmet" is clearly at the top of the front label as shown in the photo, the "Conservas de Cambados" logo is prominently displayed, and the tin is rectangular with rounded corners. Their other line "Bogar/Alamar" is made with imported seafood (not from Spain) or with lower quality seafood from outside of Galicia.

When in doubt verify the front label says "Gourmet" at the top, "Made in Spain by CONSERVAS DE CAMBADOS, S.A. FDA 15066" at the bottom, shows the "Conservas de Cambados" logo, and it is in a rectangular tin with rounded corners.

I Peccati di Ciacco is a first choice for lovers of Piedmontese cuisine at its best! Made in the village of La Morra, outside Alba, world-famous for wine and black & white truffles, each product is made in small lots according to regionally-inspired recipes with careful attention to maintaining freshness and homemade goodness.

This white truffle extra virgin olive oil is both aromatic and finely balanced. Each bottle, using top quality extra virgin olive oil, contains actual pieces of white truffle (Tuber magnatum pico, found in northern and central Italy). Spectacular in casseroles, vegetable and potato dishes, soups, gravies, meat sauces/entrées.... this is truly a chef's companion. On hot pizza, and on popcorn, it's perfect!

No preservatives!!

Do not be fooled by other truffle oils that use grape seed, sunflower, safflower, or even "olive oil"... if they went cheap on the oil you know they went cheap on the truffle. Demand "extra virgin olive oil," the best. Plus those other "truffle oils" do NOT have actual pieces of truffle in them, another cost cutting step which gives their truffle oil a chemically taste. So they went cheap on the truffle too.

Only buy truffle oils, like this one, that use EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL and that have ACTUAL PIECES of REAL TRUFFLE in EVERY bottle. That way you are guaranteed to get real, pure truffle flavor. It is a difference you can taste!

Raymond Blanc, owner of the Michelin 2-Star Restaurant Le Manoir aux Quat' Saisons, says "Belazu's Balsamic Vinegar is a must have ingredient in any kitchen, we wouldn't be without it at Le Manoir aux Quat' Saisons."

Carefully produced by a small family firm in Modena, Italy, this exceptional traditional balsamic vinegar is a blend of cooked Trebbiano grape must (unfermented grape juice) and red wine vinegar. Over time, the blend evaporates in a series of wooden casks and the natural fruit sugars in the must contribute to the viscosity, and sweetness, of this remarkable vinegar.

The Good Housekeeping Institute Taste Test (August 2002, UK Edition) voted Belazu 1st Choice, stating that Belazu was a deep, rich brown vinegar with a thick, treacly consistency, a delicious oak flavour, hints of caramelised sugar and good contrast to the sharp acidity. You cannot imagine how good and mellow this is.

Belazu Balsamic Vinegar is great on:

  • grilled or roasted asparagus, vegetables, and potatoes
  • hard Italian cheeses
  • strawberries and ice cream
  • a caprese salad. It really makes this already wonderful dish incredible.
    • A little bit will do it, but we always tend to put on just a touch more.
  • hot pizza fresh out of the oven. Belazu gives it an outstanding flavor!

Belazu is our favorite Balsamic Vinegar and we highly recommend you try a bottle!

José Páez Lobato is a family enterprise that specializes in the making of fine sherry vinegar. The Bodega, or cellar, was founded in 1933 by Francisco Paez Sanchez, and is now managed by his sons.

This 50 year old sherry vinegar is characterized by its amber color, delicate smell, and unique taste... all of which are due to a careful and prolonged aging process. Gran Capirete is aged in American Oak barrels, and the solera that gave birth to it was established in 1946 (so it is actually 70 years old!). It has an unforgettable flavor, with a hint of nuttiness. This vinegar is drier than balsamic vinegar and has an acidity of 8º.

The production and quality of sherry vinegar is monitored and controlled by the Consejo Regulador, and sherry vinegar has its own Denominacion de Origen (D.O.) which is protected by Spanish and EU law. This vinegar carries the D.O. Vinagre de Jerez stamp of approval.

Its complexity and depth of flavor greatly enhances soups, stews, sauces, casseroles, marinades, and dressings.

Madonna Raro Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Madonna Raro Extra Virgin Olive Oil Be the first one to write a review

Antonino Mennella is a passionate young extra virgin olive oil producer from the Salerno area of Campania, Italy. On his small 2,000-tree farm he produces this limited edition Raro ('rare') extra virgin olive oil by removing the pits of the Ravece and Rotondella olives, and then only pressing the remaining fruit. This process is known as "denocciolate".

This pitting before pressing is unique, and it creates an extraordinary extra virgin olive oil unlike any other you will find.

Antonino uses advanced pressing and processing technology to provide a super extra virgin olive oil with double the average content of polyphenol antioxidants, and an astoundingly low level of free oleic acid. As a result, this extra virgin olive oil has almost the same level of freshness as an olive still on the tree.

La Madonna dell’Olivo has optimal levels of vitamin E tocopherols, and Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids. This extra virgin olive oil has a remarkably well balanced flavor profile and is thus a ‘double winner’ -- an elixir of good health with amazing flavor.

This is a deep, intensely fruity extra virgin olive oil with irresistible aromas.

"My objective," says Antonino, "is to fight uniformity and exalt differences." Try this Raro Extra Virgin Olive Oil and you will see exactly what he means!

  • 96 out of 100 points in the esteemed Flos Olei 2011 Guide to the World’s Best Extra Virgin Olive Oils by Marco Oreggia
  • Distinguished as "The Best Extra Virgin Olive Oil Blended - Intense Fruity" by Flos Olei 2013 Guide to the World's Best Extra Virgin Olive Oils
  • Voted one of the Top EVOO Farms and a “Made with Love” Olive Oil
