Thanks to a constitutional amendment passed at the congressional caucus for condiment rights, oil and vinegar are finally free to legitimize their union and raise a family of adorable dressings and emollients. Relish the rights of relishes with today's Groupon: for $12, you get $25 worth of oils, vinegars, gourmet gift items, and more from Oil & Vinegar’s online shop.
Originally founded in the Netherlands, Oil & Vinegar has expanded its franchise to the United States to deliver international flavors, gifts, and unique cookware to cultured palates. Aside from a wide selection of high-quality vinegars and oils, the store offers a gourmet selection of sauces, dressings, dried herb mixes, pasta, cookware, and more. A jar of bruschetta dried-herb mix ($11.95) combined with a drizzle of Bonsecco Tuscan extra-virgin olive oil makes a delicious spread atop a crusty loaf of bread or toasted classic novel ($9.95/100 mL), as Italian squid-ink linguine treats tongues to the flavor of Italy's most prolific squid poets ($9.95). Raspberry balsam vinegar ($7.95/100 mL) pairs well with cold-pressed walnut oil ($8.95/100 mL), especially when presented in a colorful ceramic tapas dish ($4.95), and a stainless-steel oil can greases rusty bodies with a quick dose of heart-healthy omega-threes ($21.95).
Whereas distillate purists may prefer to guzzle Oil & Vinegar’s flavorful infusions by the mug-full, home cooks will appreciate the website’s helpful recipe page, which sports serving suggestions for everything from appetizers and salads to desserts and cleansing balsamic facials. Grab today’s Groupon to treat dinner guests to a taste of Tuscan-inspired luxury, or gift one to a friend as a way to politely hint at her habitually squeaky joints.
