Madonna Raro Extra Virgin Olive Oil

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 produce 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!

  • Voted one of the Top EVOO Farms and a “Made with Love” Olive Oil

Baby Eels in Olive Oil (Conservas de Cambados)
Baby Eels in Olive Oil (Conservas de Cambados) Be the first one to write a review

Baby Eels (Angulas) are one of the greatest Spanish seafood tapas. Net-caught and then carefully cooked in olive oil with a touch of cayenne, these mild, tender baby eels are a very special treat. They are traditionally served hot in a cazuela. Try them for yourself to taste one of the most distinctive, delicious Spanish delicacies.

To prepare gently heat the unopened can in a warm water bath, then open the tin and serve with a crisp white wine and crusty baguette.

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. This area is particularly suitable for harvesting clams, cockles, mussels, and other bi-valves.

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.

Laguiole Acrylic Tortoiseshell Steak Knife Set  6 knives (Jean Dubost)
Laguiole Acrylic Tortoiseshell Steak Knife Set : 6 knives (Jean Dubost) Be the first one to write a review

These are NOT real tortoise shell. That would be illegal. The handles are made of acrylic and look so much like real tortoise that even US Customs double checks the paperwork. They are truly works of art!

The Laguiole knife, from the south of France, has a history dating back to the early 1800s. The distinctive bee, a mark identifying, and distinguishing, all Laguiole products, comes from the imperial seal of Napoleon Bonaparte.

  • 6 stainless steel steak knives with Acrylic Tortoiseshell Handles
    • Thickness : 2.5 mm
  • Wooden storage box
  • Each knife is signed by Jean Dubost, legendary French knife craftsman
  • Rust and corrosion resistant
  • We recommend washing your cutlery gently by hand under running hot water and drying it immediately after. However, most of the Laguiole products, apart from those with natural wood handles, are dishwasher safe.

These knives go through 25 different manual production processes before they are stamped, ground, and polished.

A Certificate of Authenticity is included with each set.

Note these are the Premier Sets with the 2.5mm gauge, and not the cheaper "everyday" 1.5mm gauge you find elsewhere. They are thus not only beautiful on your table, but a joy to hold in your hands.

Please allow 1-2 weeks for delivery.
