The Flavor Exchange
At The Flavor Exchange bottles of olive oil dot marble countertops, peek out of rough-hewn wicker baskets, and run along the length of walls lined with pantry shelves and curio cabinets. The polished metal gleam of the lids sealing jars of preserves or spices cast a dappled glow on olive-green walls. Though the ample selection may overwhelm some gourmands, the shop’s EVOO experts curate the experience, guiding customers from decanter to decanter, chatting about winsome flavor combinations, and treating palates to tastes of organic herb-infused balsamic vinegars. Additionally, the staff leads occasional cooking classes, giving budding chefs a chance to experiment with olive-oil-infused entrees and add a few unique recipes to their repertoire without having to infiltrate Betty Crocker's research and development fortress.
