Well hello hello!
Today I'm going to review these flavored Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil and Balsamic Vinegars by 4 Buona Vita. If you haven't done so already I suggest you take a look at the youtube video where I taste these great products blindfolded, with the help of my lovely assistant (my husband), and I almost die on one of them...!
It's a great way to see my honest reaction, that was the first time I had ever tried any of their stuff, and you can ALSO find out the promo code to receive 10% your 4 Buona Vita purchase!

I am not going to say the same things I said in the video in this blog post.
Here I'd really like to get into some practical uses for these flavored oils.
A few things to say about all of them...
1. First of all they make a great gift for your friend "the foodie" who already has everything in his/her pantry (like me), but I bet you he/she doesn't have these!
2. The quality is way superior to any of the other flavored oils I've tasted so far and even compared to my own homemade recipe for spicy oil, because I can NEVER EVER find spicy enough red peppers in Philly... But that's a different story, back to the point now..
This is their "plain" olive oil, but there's nothing plain about it. I had never tried this particular olive before, and it's highly aromatic, with accents of grass, it's a very mild olive oil.
Suggested uses: since it's such a special oil, I suggest consuming raw, on a bruschetta or to top off a soup.
Try it on: bruschetta, soups, pasta sauces, and in place of any "spicy heat" in any recipe
I would use it on: bbq sauces, to bring the flavors of the grill indoors!
