Extra-Virgin and Oh, So Delicious

Bariani Olive Oil

Why do we love olive oil? Let us count the ways. From its incredible versatility to its richness in antioxidants, we think this might just be a miracle food. For a locally made treat, try the olive oil being produced by Bariani right here in Sacramento.

Service with Style

Olive Oil Bottle

For a cute addition to your serving collection, pick up a set of Clay Art’s hand-painted, olive-patterned oil bottles, plates and dishware. We think these would be adorable for your next Italian feast. If olives aren’t quite your style, check out Clay Art’s many other hand-painted patterns.

Clean Up with Olive Oil

Kiss My Face Soap

Of course we love the fruity taste of a delicious olive oil, but we were also delighted to discover that this versatile oil is a great moisturizer, too! Kiss My Face’s pure olive oil soap bar is good for all skin types and will leave your skin naturally soft and smooth.

Featured Recipe: Ratatouille


Make the Most of Summer Veggies

Ratatouille is a perfect summer recipe, because it calls for the freshest in-season vegetables — zucchini, eggplant, red and green bell peppers — to make a satisfying and super-healthy summer meal.

Italy’s Masterpiece


Hand-crafted for centuries, Parmesan-Reggiano is what all other Parmesans aspire to be. Made in the Po Valley and aged a minimum of 2 years, this cheese is great added to almost any dish. Pair it with figs, pears and melons for a classic treat, or try it with prosciutto and balsamic vinegar. Try melting it over our Rustic French bread for a tasty accompaniment to our featured Ratatouille recipe.

Do You Like Bread?Rustic French Demi Batard

A crusty loaf of our Rustic French bread makes a great accompaniment to our ratatouille recipe — and it’s made fresh in-store every day.

Health Notes from Dr. Liz:Dr Liz

Savoring Summer Squash

With quirky names like pattypan, eightball and crookneck, summer squashes come in a variety of shapes and colors, and they supply a wealth of health benefits. These squashes promote heart health with a trio of nutrients: potassium, vitamin C and fiber — and only 36 calories per cup. Studies show that people who eat several servings of vegetables daily, including zucchini and other summer squashes, effectively lower their blood pressure and circulating cholesterol levels. Phytonutrients in zucchini and crookneck may also help prevent cancer.

Since skin and all make it to your mouth, select shiny and unblemished squashes with tender skins. Use them sliced in stir-fries; added to soups, stews and casseroles; or grate over salads. You can even “sneak” a serving of vegetables using grated squash in muffins and quick bread recipes. Grilled squash makes an excellent addition to summertime meals. Slice them lengthwise and drizzle lightly with olive oil and seasonings, then place them on a hot grill and cook a few minutes each side.
