I love olive oil. My family uses it on an almost weekly basis so I was excited to be given the opportunity from Mom’s Meet to be part of the Flavor of Life Campaign to try Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO) from Europe. This campaign aims to educate North American consumers about authentic EVOO from Europe, empowering consumers, and sharing inspiring recipes that use liquid gold in everyday cooking. Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO) from Europe is not a simple commodity or just another cooking oil that is more flavorful than the others. In fact, it offers a wide range of flavors and aromas, and oils are created for many uses – from a delicious daily drizzle to rare single-origin oils.
My kit included:
- 1 bottle of European Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- A stainless steel Olive Oil dispenser ($65 value)
- Recipe cards
The recipe cards are amazing with so many great recipes such as spaghetti squash caprese, pumpkin hummus, fisherman’s pie, cauliflower mash, chicken parmesan soup, creamy avocado crostini, and more all made using EVOO.
I decided to do something simple to start. 🙂 I love salad and eat it almost every week so I decided to make the salad dressing. It is a pretty simple recipe and I had almost everything on hand. It was homemade Italian dressing that would serve 4. The recipe calls for EVOO, red wine vinegar but I only had white wine so I used that, dried oregano, 2 cloves of garlic, grated parmesan cheese, sea salt and black pepper. I made a smaller batch for me to put on my salad. It tasted pretty good.
One of the European EVOO is Zucchi olive oil. Zucchi is a 200-year-old company that has been owned and managed by seven generations of the Zucchi family. Zucchi is committed to creating the highest quality oils, sourcing from the top olive oil growers and blending their oils in an artisanal manner. Zucchi’s point of difference is their upscale taste, quality, traceability (with QR code) and the Italian Art of Blending. Find out more HERE.
Besides sampling EVOO products, I have had the opportunity to sample Nutella, Veri products, Organic India capsules, Sambazan Smoothie, Zevia soda, and more. If you are a mom who is enthusiastic about parenting and green living then you will want to check out Moms Meet Mom Ambassador.
