Without the aid of culinary cooking oils, all food would have the taste and consistency of a primordial sand fig, the preferred fruit of skeleton armies. Liven up any feast with today’s deal: for $12, you get $25 worth of gourmet oils, vinegars, and cookies from Arnabal International Inc., an Irvine-based online retailer. Although today’s Groupon cannot be used toward shipping, shipping is only $4 for orders more than $25 and is free for orders more than $40.
Arnabal International produces the gourmet infused oils and vinegars of Gourmet Kitchen O&V and Les Lavendes and features cookies from Gloria’s Gourmet. Sprinkle salads, marinate meat, or fill a hot tub with a fragrant field of lavender vinegar (200 ml. for $9.99). For an aromatic cooking choice that's finely aged but not quite over the hill, order a balsamic vinegar, naturally sweet and aged for 20 years (200 ml. for $19.99). Blood-orange oil (200 ml. for $7.99) makes a sweet and tart topping for chicken salads, sautéed seameat, and numerous veggies that would otherwise become indistinguishable to the indifferent tongue. Gloria’s Gourmet Cookies are ideal as after-dinner treats while entertaining or delectable for munching solo in a darkened room. Savor a yellow packet of caramel lemon-drop bites ($2.60), or go decadent with choc-orange sandwich cookies stuffed with raspberry jam ($5.50).
Arnabal's oils and vinegars come instilled with a whisper of the countryside, though previous side effects such as Gérard Depardieu appearing in the marinade have been eradicated. Whether you’re planning to cook up a feast for a hoard of hungry guests or you simply dabble in the culinary arts from time to time, infused oils and vinegars add a delicate layer of flavor to all manner of dishes. Use today’s Groupon to commission some gourmet-meal assistance for use during Mr. Belvedere's off days.
