THREE FOR THE TABLE:
Amoretti's Olive Oil Trio Flavors Dinner, From First to Final Bite
(Virtual Press Office
) -- If you could keep just three items in your pantry with which to dazzle impromptu dinner guests, what would you choose?
As Marketing President of Amoretti, Inc., a purveyor of premium pastry, beverage and savory ingredients, Maral Barsoumian has thousands of choices. But she doesn't hesitate. "It would have to be our Premium Organic Extra Virgin Finishing Olive Oil infused with the flavor & aroma of kalamata olives, Premium Aged Pomegranate Balsamic Vinegar, and Premium Pomegranate Balsamic Vinaigrette
," she says. "That's because authentic kalamata olive flavor and aroma, and sweet-tart pomegranate give these products a real "WOW" factor. And of course, they're so versatile."
Those choices might surprise, since Amoretti is known first and foremost for its Pastry ingredients, beverage Ingredients and cocktail mixes. But the company's over-arching focus is flavor, pure and simple. "When we're not in the test kitchen, we're at home preparing meals with friends and family. Olive oil and vinegar are essentials for dipping, drizzling and finishing, and their applications extend from appetizers and breads to mains and desserts," adds Barsoumian. The Amoretti team spent years developing their dream versions, which they now proudly share with home cooks and entertainers everywhere. The oil, vinegar, and vinaigrette are available in various sizes and configurations, ranging from a trio of minis to 500 ml. bottles to an elegant gift set.
Premium Organic Extra Virgin Finishing Olive Oil
is that rare olive oil that sings "kalamata," regaling the taste buds with the natural flavor and aroma of the rich black olives of the same name. But it has none of the salt, so it is equal parts healthy and delicious. The cold pressed oil is also gluten fee, vegan, GMO/GEO free, and kosher. Drizzle it onto summer tomatoes, caprese salad, bruschetta, pizza or pasta. Use it to finish grilled fish or vegetables, for dipping
focaccia, and to seal your reputation as top chef, at least on your block.
Premium Pomegranate Balsamic Vinegar
has a base of rich aged pomegranate instead of wine, which gives it a balanced sweet and tangy flavor and also makes it one of the few kosher balsamico vinegars on the market. It is natural, gluten-free, vegan, preservative-, GMO- and sodium-free. Because it is so highly concentrated (it takes 11 pounds of pomegranate to yield one pound of the concentrated pomegranate used to make our Balsamic rich aged pomegranate vinegar), a little is all it takes to add a luscious patina of flavor to a multitude of dishes. Use a few drops over salads or fresh fruit. Drizzle it over a bowl of strawberries and vanilla bean ice cream. Glaze grilled or roasted meats, poultry or fish, and use in marinades and reductions. Premium Pomegranate Balsamic Vinegar is aged three to five years.
Premium Aged Pomegranate Balsamic Vinaigrette
proves that oil and vinegar do play together quite nicely, when the oil in question is infused with the irresistible natural aroma of kalamata olives, and the vinegar is a rich, aged pomegranate-based variety. Dress a summer salad in style, or use to marinate vegetables, meats, poultry and fish. Wine and sodium-free, gluten-free, vegan, GMO/GEO-free and kosher.
