Quality oil and vinegar are versatile gifts, perfect for cooks who like to keep a bottle or two on hand. We love Molino’s Arbequina Extra Virgin Olive Oil (presented in a lovely blue and white bottle) and Giovanna Balsamic Vinegar of Modena Gold. This balsamic vinegar is made using a secret family recipe and aged for 4-10 years in wood barrels.

Creative chefs will also appreciate Haku Shoyu, an aged Japanese soy sauce that’s made in small batches, as well as A L’Oliver Fruit Pulp Vinegars. Crafted with a blend of 40% fruit pulp and white wine vinegar, A L’Oliver’s distinctive French vinegars are a delicious way to brighten up any dish.
