Kaldi's resident sorcerers of Greek cuisine conjure up spellbinding batches of USDA-certified organic oils and traditional sauces for authentic-tasting homemade Mediterranean dishes. Great for adorning pastas and salad dressings or greasing a slip ‘n slide, Kaldi extra-virgin olive oil is extracted from rare Kolovi and Adramytiani olives plucked from the Greek island of Lesvos ($12.99/500 mL bottle). Every bottle of golden oil carries tastes of grass, hay, and artichokes, with a delightful fragrance and peppery aftertaste. Kaldi also acts as a purveyor of fine tomato sauces, pairing each preservative-free concoction with rich flavors such as ouzo, orange, or peppers ($6.99/bottle). Each sauce's distinctive combination of herbs, spices, and all-natural ingredients allows cooks to create authentic Greek dishes without the hassle of raiding Mount Olympus's pantry.
Kaldí founders and brothers Greg and Peter Kaldes grew up enjoying fresh Greek dishes with their family. They spent their childhood summers on the Greek island of Lesbos, where their grandparents prepared freshly caught fish and local lamb. As they grew older, the two began to realize how intrinsic Greek food was to their formative years and how much they loved foods made from their family's recipes. Kaldí's olive oils and tomato sauces aim to recreate the tastes Greg and Peter remember from their youth. Only Greek olives make their way into Kaldí's bottles of organic olive oil, and tomato sauces bear bold Greek flavors with hints of orange, onion, or peppers.
