We know the place. We know the producer. We know just the thing.
Our classic pairing of olive oil and balsamic vinegar, or lui e lei (‘his and hers’), the very basis of Italian cooking.
Our olive oil and balsamic vinegar producers both live on the Via Emilia Road in Emilia Romagna. At one end of the road Signor Lo Conte spends all year tending his trees to ensure, come harvest time, his oil is the very best it can be. At the other end – it’s a waiting game as it takes time for the balsamic vinegar to mature to perfection.
Every kitchen should have a good looking oil & vinegar.
The perfect present for any budding chef or kitchen conscious people.
A balsamic perfect for drizzling and an Italian extra virgin olive oil.
Emilia-Romagna is the north-eastern region of Italy, home to two historic regions of ‘Emilia’ & ‘Romagna’.
Its capital and largest city is Bologna, famous for its beautiful buildings, architecture and churches dating from the Roman period. The University of Bologna is the world's oldest university, founded in 1088.
On a slightly more modern front, Emilia-Romagna is the automotive centre of Italy. Ferrari, Bugatti, Lamborghini and Maseratis are all made in the region. However, it is also the birth place of some of the most traditional and well-known Italian foods: Parma prosciutto ham, balsamic vinegar (only made in the cities of Modena and Reggio-Emilia) and Parmigiano Reggiano (parmesan cheese).
