This week’s post is another favorite of ours: F. Oliver’s. Their variety of olive oils and vinegars are a staple in both of our houses. We are all about supporting local, so it’s great to know that F. Oliver’s is a local, family owned and operated business.
Access to local and fresh flavor, combined with the influence of social media is growing the awareness of consumers interested in quality and healthful products. F. Oliver’s knows their customers appreciate that their infusions are all natural, their olive oils are the freshest available and their balsamics are old-world traditionally aged, without added sugars. The team at F. Oliver’s is very knowledgable to help you determine pairings and recommend recipes that you can feel good about eating.
Whether your tastes buds are enticed by the hints of fruit in the strawberry, raspberry, and pomegranate balsamics, or you lean more towards the herby olive oils, such as bright basil or herbs de Provence, there is something for you. Can’t choose? Try a sampler pack! Our personal favorites at F. Oliver’s include the 18 year balsamic, the fig balsamic, and the white balsamic vinegar. We also love the varietal olive oils! F. Oliver’s works with a family owned importer out of California that sources some of the best olive growers worldwide.
Why else do we love F. Oliver’s? You can host a party there! This is a fun way to gather some friends and enjoy each other’s company while sampling food with F. Oliver’s oils and vinegars. F. Oliver’s will provide a list of easy, small dishes for each guest to bring that can be enhanced with their products. Then, you and your guests spend the rest of your party sipping some wine and enjoying all the flavorful pairings!
If you are looking for local restaurants that F. Oliver’s sources to, check out Rio Tomatian in Canandaigua, where they also use their products in their cocktails, and the Aurora Inn on Cayuga Lake.
Or, take a day trip out to Ithaca where several restaurants use F. Oliver’s products. F. Oliver’s is working to partner with more local businesses in the near future!
