A little shop in Rockland captured our hearts with its great concept and fine products. Theresa told us not to miss Fiore, which sells flavored olive oils and vinegars. I know what you’re thinking. You’re thinking, “I’ve seen basil olive oil on the shelf of my local A&P.” But this, my friends, is way different. These are premium olives oils and vinegars, which you can taste and are them bottled for you right there in the store. We were in heaven.
So there are all these different jars, and you take little plastic cups and pour a little out of the spigot to taste them.
Here are a few of the combinations they suggest:
The tasting room:
We ended up buying some, natch.
We got the Meyer Lemon Olive Oil and three vinegars: Traditional 18-year-old Balsamic, White Grapefruit and Aged Blueberry.
We have been making salads with them ever since we got home, and we are loving them.
Thank you Fiore!
