A couple months back my husband and I decided to take a trip to Branson Missouri. Little did we know Branson really is like Las Vegas for Ned Flanders – lots of gospel music, antique shops and country fried food – not our style! One cool thing about that trip though was our discovery of Devo Olive Oil Company. At Devo you can taste test all the oils and vinegars before you buy!
On our recent trip we picked up three different items: two balsamic vinegars & one truffle oil. The first balsamic we decided to purchase was Honey Ginger White Balsamic ($12.95). Honey and ginger combined create a subtle spicy note which plays perfectly with the white balsamic vinegar. It pairs well with chicken, shrimp, scallops, fish and other light dishes.
Our second purchase was Strawberry Balsamic Vinegar ($12.95). An amazing combination of both sweet and tart, the Strawberry Balsamic vinegar is the result of adding pure and natural Strawberry essence to 12 year old balsamic. I’ve used it to make a rich reduction for topping sugared puff pastry with fresh strawberries and marscapone (will post that recipe soon!)
Our final purchase was White Truffle Oil ($20.95). Oh me oh my this is the good stuff. This heavenly concoction is made in Italy by steeping white truffles in extra virgin olive oil. It’s heavenly as a finishing oil on pizzas, popcorn, roasted potatoes and so much more. A little goes a very long way!
The good thing about Devo is you don’t have to go to Missouri to buy their products – they’re available online! So if you’re like me and you would rather visit the real Las Vegas check out Devo online! They have a wide array of oils, vinegars and even homemade pastas.
