New extravaGONZO Gourmet Oils Add to Heavenly Blends

Jalapeño Lime, Roasted Garlic, Meyer Lemon and Blood Orange are the newest additions to the extravaGONZO Gourmet Foods unique line of culinary oils.  What could be anything but heavenly with this blend of 80% extra virgin and 20% grapeseed oils, extravaGONZO?

Creator Tom Stevens has also been able to fuse in ingredients in an original way that gives them a bright and bold flavor unlike other oils on the market.

It totally eliminates the problem of olive oil developing an odd taste unless you use it up relatively quickly.  Not the experience with grape seed oil and certainly not the experience here!

I wrote about the merits of grape seed oil years ago because the northern California company owner was charming and looked like Viggo Mortensen.  I mentioned that a drizzle of it and rice vinegar plus a sprinkle of salt and pepper was a fine salad dressing.  Within a year I was extolling the merits of grape seed oil and buying up a  product whenever I could find it wholesale (a spectacular French version).  I loved it so much I gave it as holiday gifts.

When they say that  from Modena, Italy, aged to syrupy perfection.  And they are perfection.   The collection also includes classic red and white balsamic vinegars,

“The GONZO philosophy is minimal ingredients, maximum taste,” states owner Tom Stevens. “My motto is bold flavors for bold people, not for the fancy or faint at heart. I ensure that the product line will be a palate pleaser to all — from the seasoned chef who labors over his/her creations, to the parent who comes home from work and has just a few moments to throw a quick meal together.”

Roasted Garlic turns up the taste on everything from steaks to seafood and pasta to dressings, while a drizzle will do wonders for popcorn, pizza and roasted potatoes. Blood Orange will do the same for poultry, pork and fish, with a drizzle adding lip-smacking tang to dressings, potatoes and roasted veggies. Meyer Lemon is perfect for giving a summery fresh complement to chicken, fish and lamb, while a drizzle will enliven roasted veggies, potatoes and dressings. And to add a mildly sharp kick to poultry, seafood and steaks on the grill, use Jalapeño Lime.
