Elmhurst Olive Oil Company
Cooking is more than just heating things up to a suitable temperature; it’s about combining flavors to create a unified dish that is both tasty and satisfying. That’s why the staff at Elmhurst Olive Oil Company offers at-home chefs the chance to give their meals a little something extra with their line of infused olive oils, balsamic vinegars, and sea salts. Flavors such as rosemary, garlic, and jalapeno add a slight taste to sautéed meats and vegetables, and the tart taste of pomegranate and smooth tones of vanilla come out in dressings and sauces made with their balsamic vinegars. Staffers also blend together spices to create their own signature rubs and spice blends, and offer sixteen sea salts that give meals the touch of spice or complex, smoky element usually only attained by cooking them over a moving Olympic torch. The shop offers tastings of each oils, vinegars, and spices, allowing chefs to see if inspiration strikes when new flavors hit their tongues.
