Tampa Olive Oil Company vends gourmet olive oils, balsamic vinegars, and other culinary accessories designed to add depth and character to meals. Fruity or grassy olive oils from Greece, Italy, and Morocco sidle up to their flavored brethren, which are infused with aromas such as basil, truffles, or roasted peppers. Customers can use the oils to flavor hearty roasts and sautés or combine them with classic and flavored balsamic vinegars for a light, tangy salad dressing.
Other artisanal offerings, including spices, specialty oils, and scented sea salts, round out Tampa Olive Oil Company's selection of edibles. In addition, serving accessories such as oil sprayers, pour spouts, and dipping saucers help customers discontinue their usual practice of serving condiments through a fire hose.
Under the capable direction of Captain Gene Becker, the 75-foot Fort Myers Princess glides into the Gulf of Mexico on a variety of day and night cruises. Certified by the U.S. Coast Guard to carry up to 135 passengers, the boat offers dual styles of relaxation on its decks: the climate-controlled lower level, where guests can sip on the ship's signature drink, the "Princess Punch," and the open-air upper deck that can accommodate more casual events. Sightseeing cruises put passengers up-close with southwest Florida wildlife and other water inhabitants.
Inside his open kitchen at Il Tesoro, owner and chef A.J. Black creates a variety of dishes including pear salad with gorgonzola, short ribs, duck confit, and a key lime tiramisu. Drawing on his training at the Italian Culinary Institute and inside the kitchens of the five-star Grand Hotel in Rome, Black combines Old-World Italian flavors with modern cooking techniques and plays matchmaker by serving plates of spaghetti for two composed of only one noodle.
The menu showcases fresh, seasonal ingredients and rotating daily specials, such as chef Black's signature risotto alla pescatora sautéed with clams, mussels, shrimp, and scallops and finished with cherry tomato sauce. The wine list collects Italian varietals carefully selected from both large and boutique wineries to pair with menu selections. Fresco paintings decorate the plastered walls with Tuscan scenery alongside antique artwork, intricate woodwork, and prospective diners with their noses pressed against the windows.
Imagine for a moment diving into the ocean, resurfacing with not only memories of the sub-aquatic environment, but a full reel of photographs, too. Underwater photography is just one of the many courses offered at Scuba Quest, a family-owned company that has shown students how to safely explore the seas for more than 25 years.
Scuba Quest began as a single shop, but has since spread to six locations across the state of Florida. At each, the company’s NAUI-certified instructors lead refresher courses, beginner classes, and comprehensive certification programs. Rather than climbing into fish tanks while pet-store clerks are on break, Scuba Quest's students can put their new skills to the test in unfamiliar waters during the company’s exotic diving excursions around the globe.
