Making food from scratch typically requires advance preparation, adherence to a recipe, and your third and final genie wish. Save the third wish for more wishes with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of gourmet oils and vinegars from Giuseppe's International Oils & Vinegars. This Groupon can be redeemed either online or at Giuseppe's store, located inside The Mall at Partridge Creek in Clinton Township.
At Giuseppe's International Oils & Vinegars, fresh, single-cultivar extra-virgin olive oils and aged balsamic vinegars appease international palates with complex, nutrient-packed flavors. A bottle of Arbequina oil ($11.95–$30.95) from Chile lubricates salads, pasta, or heads stuck between fence rails with creamy, peppery flourishes. Cobrançosa oil ($11.95–$13.95) makes an appearance from Portugal, stunning crowds with aromas of green apple, a mildly bitter finish, and well-placed shots from a taser. Barrel-aged dark-chocolate vinegar from Modena, Italy resonates with the harmonies of three types of chocolate ($11.95–$30.95). Shoppers can also explore the realms of crisp white vinegars, such as the honey and ginger vinegar ($11.95–$30.95), whose sweet honey blankets waves of spicy heat.
Like shopping for a new gingerbread home, customers are welcome to taste selections before making a purchase. After choosing their ideal flavor, oil slingers will fill a 200-, 375-, or 750-milliliter bottle from the same fusti from which samples are sourced.
