Baklouti Green Chili Olive Oil
Sold Out

From the Barbary Coast of North Africa, this Tunisia Baklouti pepper is rare and unique to this region. This is the only example of this fruity and mildly spicy green chili olive oil in the world. Baklouti chili olive oil is made by combining one pound of organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil with 1.6 pounds of fresh whole green Baklouti chilies. The two-and only two!-ingredients are then crushed and mixed in the malaxer fusing the fresh green pepper with the organic olive oil. Baklouti adds a new and surprising dimension to salsas of all stripes. This is truly a unique artisan product that has hundreds of applications.

Basil Olive Oil

Fresh, green and herbal! Basil and EVOO are two integral ingredients in Mediterranean cooking, and it was just obvious to us that the two should be together. This oil is also perfect for your Italian cooking or bread dipping. Drizzle it liberally over fresh tomatoes with salt and pepper and eat them, or in a bruschetta with red onions. Herb-baked chicken comes to life with this oil!

Try it with Strawberry Balsamic for a perfect, summery spinach salad dressing. Also pairs well with Lemon or Peach White Balsamics, or Blueberry, Cinnamon-Pear, or Fig Balsamic.
Black Truffle Olive Oil

The late fall, early winter truffle is used in the making of this savoury oil. A ‘tea method’ is utilized which steeps the ripe truffles for extended periods of time in Extra Virgin Olive Oil. The closely-guarded, proprietary process yields our heady, complex Black Truffle Olive Oil. No extracts or chemicals are used in its production.

Fantastic in cream-based soups, risotto or mashed potatoes!
Blood Orange Olive Oil

Uses the Whole Fruit Fused Agrumato Method. As the Blood Oranges and Tunisian olives ripen, we press them together to form this beautiful agrumato (whole, fresh fruits crushed with olives). Our Blood Orange Olive Oil smells divine and is exceedingly versatile; use it on fish and seafood, chicken, fruit, salads and much more.

Enjoy blending with our Cranberry-Pear White Balsamic or Dark Chocolate Balsamic for a lively, tart vinaigrette.
Butter Olive Oil

Creamy Extra Virgin Olive Oil is naturally infused with the rich flavour of butter using a patented plant extract. Use this golden, vegetarian, dairy-free infused olive oil as a butter substitute in baking or anywhere you might use melted butter.

Try it over popcorn, with seafood (amazing with crab or shrimp), to dip bread in, over pasta, mashed potatoes, rice, or in baking.
Butternut Squash Seed Oil

This award-winning seed oil is made from 100% all-natural squash seeds. The seeds are roasted, then cold-pressed for a healthy and unrefined, golden-coloured oil with a nutty, buttery flavour. Its smoke point is 425F, making this oil ideal for many uses beyond salad. It is also uniquely rich in Vitamin E, with no trans fat or cholesterol.

Try roasting vegetables with this or in baked goods and stuffing (gives that nutty flavour, but is safe for those with nut allergies). Substitute for butter in mashed potatoes or drizzled over squash ravioli.
Chipotle Olive Oil

The smoky flavour of this chili-infused olive oil is great for marinating steaks and brushing on grilled chicken or seafood. Drizzle over vegetables or pizza for a spicy meal. An excellent dipping oil for artisan breads, finishing oil for soups, pasta or grain dishes, and a wonderful base for dressings and marinades.

Try pairing with our Espresso or Black Cherry Balsamic for steak. Or with Garlic Olive Oil and Mango White Balsamic for a sweet chili marinade or taco salad dressing. Amazing over popcorn!
Chiquitita Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Mild Intensity

Originating only very recently in Spain in 1991, this new cultivar is a cross between the iconic Spanish Picual and Arbequina varieties. Sweet and delicate, with pleasant notes of green almond and olive. This one is considered rare.

Cilantro & Roasted Onion Olive Oil

Made with the perfectly blended flavours of roasted, sweet Cippolini onions and cilantro. Take this oil into your Asian or Mexican cooking with ease. Start off any stir fry, fajitas or enchiladas with this flavoured oil right in your pan. Roast your vegetables or whole chicken brushed with this lovely oil. If salads are more your thing, think Asian cole slaw or a cabo salad with black beans, red pepper and roasted corn. Hungry?

Pairs well with our Honey Ginger or Mango White Balsamic Vinegars.
Cobrancosa Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Historically one of our most popular Northern Hemisphere EVOOs, the Portuguese Cobrancosa is very complex. Layered with creamy flavours and savoury notes of nettle and green herb, this unique variety has developed a loyal following.

Dark Toasted Sesame Oil

Our Japanese Dark Toasted Sesame Oil has tremendous depth of flavour and a creamy mouth-feel. Because it is dark toasted before it is cold pressed, it is one of the most flavourful and fragrant oils in the world! Stronger than other sesame oils, a little goes a long way so you can use less oil in your cooking. Stir fry right in this oil or saute a beautiful salmon filet. Drizzle into cooked rice or try it in your favourite peanut sauces or dressings--hot or cold! Sushi lovers will love this!

Pairs well with our Honey Ginger or Mango White Balsamics, or Black Cherry Balsamic for something fun! Try it with Garlic Olive Oil and Maple Balsamic to create a healthy "teriyaki" sauce!
Eureka Lemon Fused Olive Oil

Uses the Whole Fruit Fused Agrumato Method. Our Eureka Lemon Olive Oil is produced by pressing whole, fresh lemons together with late harvest olives at the time of crush. Its light, refreshing flavour is just perfect to sauté shrimp or scallops, or to drizzle on chicken or fish. Citrus oil is great on salads, in marinades, and for baking into muffins and cakes.

Pairs really well with Blueberry or Raspberry Balsamic. Try it with the French Tarragon, Jalapeno, or Oregano White Balsamic Condimento to flavour roasted vegetables or for a savoury salad dressing.
Fennel Olive Oil
Sold Out

Uses the Whole Herb Fused Agrumato Method. Made from fresh fennel and early harvest, certified organic Chemlali olives crushed together using 100% mechanical cold extraction methods. Redolent with deep, rich notes of fennel that make it a lovely accompaniment to poultry, seafood, pork and salad dressings. Mind-blowing with steamed mussels, bouillabaisse, aioli, eggs, and roasted vegetables!

Try with Lemon or Oregano White Balsamic, or Pomegranate Balsamic. The staff favourite pairing is actually with Dark Chocolate Balsamic!
Garlic Olive Oil

No peeling, chopping or smelly fingers! Great as your everyday, go-to cooking oil, because what doesn't benefit from a little garlic? Start off almost any stir-fry, soup, or sauce with this round and warm, roasted flavoured oil. Brush on bread and toast for an instant garlic bread! Or try tossing with veggies before roasting. Pair with any Metropolitan Chef spice blend (found in-store) and you've got an amazing and flavourful rub.

Great to mix in with pasta or mashed potatoes, to drizzle on steaks before grilling, or just to dip bread. Try with Fig Balsamic for meat or veggies. Or Mango White Balsamic combined with a touch of Red Cayenne Olive Oil for a sweet chili heat dressing or marinade!
Harissa Olive Oil

Most popular in North Africa and the Middle East, Harissa is a spice paste made with chili peppers (often smoked), garlic, caraway, coriander and cumin, which are pounded together and left overnight to develop its flavours. And we’ve added even more peppers by popular demand, making it delightfully hot.

For an exciting bread dipper, try with Blackberry Ginger, Blueberry Balsamic or Peach White Balsamic. Use in your curry, stir fries, or bean salads with our Lemon White Balsamic as a finisher.
Herbes de Provence Olive Oil

With top notes of savoury, thyme, and bay leaf, this natural infused Extra Virgin Olive Oil is a show stopper when drizzled over grilled chicken, rubbed on turkey before roasting, for bread dipping, or in aioli. The flavours in this oil lend themselves to French cooking and many cream sauces. Or use it in Italian recipes for a different twist on herb breads and wonderful soups.

Try paired with Black Currant Balsamic or Gravenstein Apple White Balsamic. Try with Grapefruit White Balsamic for an amazing salad dressing or chicken marinade.

Red Cayenne Chili Olive Oil

Made exclusively at our organic mill in Tunisia by crushing 12 pounds of fresh, whole ripe cayenne chilies for each gallon (7.6 pounds) of 100% organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil. The oil and fresh chilies are fused for two hours before decanting and filtering. This is an essential ingredient for all North African fare: harissa, couscous, seafood, relish, salsa, roasted lamb, chicken, and BBQ!

Aptly named, “Chili-Head Heaven”. Pairs well with Espresso Balsamic for a beef marinade or Mango White Balsamic for a spicy chicken stir fry. Also, try it with Serrano Honey Vinegar!

Try with Strawberry Balsamic or Cranberry-Pear White Balsamic for a decadent salad dressing. Use as a finishing oil over cooked vegetables and mellow soups, or as a flavouring for your fresh pasta or rice dishes – think Pumpkin Risotto! Drizzle over vanilla ice cream with bananas and biscotti.
Roasted Walnut Oil

Our handcrafted, Roasted Walnut Oil is made in Saumur, France strictly following 150 year-old traditional methods. Slowly roasted to perfection, then expeller-pressed and lightly filtered, it adds a rich walnut taste to salad dressing, pasta, grilled meat, fresh baked pastries and makes a great bread dipper.

It pairs beautifully with any of the fruitier balsamics. Pair it with the Neapolitan Balsamic for Greek salad, or with the Traditional Balsamic for outstanding bread dipping.
White Truffle Olive Oil
Sold Out

A connoisseur’s olive oil, this is the first natural truffle oil made with Ultra Premium Quality Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Made in Italy in an artisan fashion, this olive oil is smooth, while having an unmistakable intense white truffle flavor. Like the Black Truffle Olive Oil, the rich essence of white truffle is infused in a mild Arbosana. Makes a great finishing oil for many Mediterranean dishes, in mashed potatoes or try it drizzled on popcorn! It also makes an amazing aioli. A little goes a long way, so use sparingly!

Wild Fernleaf Dill Olive Oil

Highly aromatic and savoury, our Wild Fernleaf Dill Olive Oil is a must-have Mediterranean staple. We recommend using it with cucumbers, fish, green beans, poultry, in soups, egg dishes, creamy sauces, olive oil based mayonnaise, tartar sauce, roasted potatoes or for baking delectable herb breads and rolls.

It pairs beautifully with the Sicilian Lemon White Balsamic, Oregano White Balsamic, and Strawberry Balsamic. But it truly shines with the Mango or Peach White Balsamics as a bread dipper or summery dressing!
Wild Mushroom & Sage Olive Oil

A delicious combination of fresh herbaceous sage paired with an array of savoury and wild mushrooms. The result is a sumptuous experience! Try drizzled over cream of mushroom soup, on risotto, stuffing, and aioli. Shines with baked potatoes or crispy cubed potatoes on the barbecue.

It makes an inspired vinaigrette when paired with our Sicilian Lemon White Balsamic Vinegar. Or try as a salad dressing or pork marinade with the Red Apple Balsamic.
