We love to cook other people’s recipes!
Who we are:
We are self proclaimed olive oil connoisseurs and lovers of great balsamic. We are in our mid 30’s with kids and we love the culinary field. We cook all the time, especially these days of the poor economy but we really don’t have any training. We are always learning something new daily when it comes to cooking. Since almost every meal needs some sort of oil we choose Ariston’s because it is by far the best we ever tried. From the first taste 5 years ago to our everyday we still love that liquid gold that the Romans enjoyed thousands of years ago. Yes were talking about olive oil, the one that is lime green not yellow. We searched high and low for the best and have found it. For the last 5 years there have been no substitutes for us because there is only one taste we love when it comes to olive oil and that is Ariston’s Reserve. This oil is so light, fruit and so well suited for our daily cooking that it makes it into almost 5 out of the 7 weekly dishes we cook, weather we use it pan sear, broil or bake there is no substitute for this fruity first pressed oil. As far as Balsamic, well were not talking about the black water like liquid that you usually purchase from the grocery store. No were talking about the real stuff from Modena. This stuff is so thick and perfectly sweet/sour adding this type of balsamic s to anything makes it just taste crazy good, even on something crazy like ice cream! The flavored ones do have their place in our kitchen as well but the plain has been our all around favorite!
So what makes Ariston differ from other oils? For one it comes from a small family owned operation based in Kalamata, Greece. It is packaged locally and has been featured in local papers as the best in the Northeast. It has made NPR radios Faith Middleton show three times.
One Taste of the Olive Oil and you’ll see what the buzz is all about!
Most importantly we would love to hear your cooking stories and most of all we would love to receive, cook and eat your favorite recipes!
We will be adding recipes to our online recipe catalog every week, so please keep checking back.. My husband and I do hope you enjoy our current series ‘Healthy eating, the easy way’ we we look forward to your recipient submissions.
