Olive Oil has been a staple of my diet for as long as I can remember. Whenever my parents would cook, they would always grease the pan with a bit of olive oil, not butter. When Italian dinners were had, a tiny bowl of olive oil and balsamic was presented for dipping. In fact, my family loves olive oil so much that my dad bought 4 giant bottles of it when we went to Italy a few years back to take home on the plane. The tragic part was that he mistakenly put one of the bottles in his carry on bag and the TSA confiscated that immediately. Tears were shed, inaudible curse words were muttered, but we all took comfort in the fact that we still had bottles in the checked luggage.
So why am I waxing poetic about olive oil? Because I want to share with you my newest olive oil discover – O&CO. O&CO specializes in Mediterranean delicacies such as tapenades, pastas, seasonings, crackers, and of course olive oil. Since the Englishman and I eat a very Mediterranean style diet, this site is perfect for all of our needs, especially when we can’t make it over to the O&CO closest to us.
I love that O&CO sells more unique items that you can always get in a standard supermarket such as white and black truffle oil, specialty pastas such as saffron tagliatelle and lavender honey. The recipe section on the site has a lot of great ideas on how you can use the store items to create unique and delicious dishes.
O&CO has been around 16 years, and to celebrate their 16th anniversary they are offering 16% off all merchandise in stores and online from October 12-16. It’s a great deal for anyone looking to buy specialty items or looking to stock up before the holidays. To take advantage of this offer simply visit O&CO and use the code FOODIE16 to get your discount, or check out an O&CO near you!
