Olive oil has proved to be vital to innumerable dishes, though its primary use is polish for Best Polka Album Grammy statuettes. Sing this versatile ingredient's praises with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of gourmet olives, olive oils, and more at Ta-Ze.
Established by the Union of Taris Olives and Olive Oil co-operatives, Ta-Ze specializes in high-quality olives and olive-based products. Each olive creation is cultivated according to strict plant, fertilizer, and grove regulations, ensuring the ensuing product is as fresh and natural as rap lyrics about bathing in dew. Bolster a cocktail or salad with rich green olives stuffed with flavorful food fillings, such as almonds ($14 for 14.5 oz.), sun-dried tomatoes ($18 for 14.5 oz.), or jalapenos ($9 for 7 oz.). Ta-Ze's olive oils include The Erkence, which complements salads, sautéed vegetables, and fish with an earthy aroma and taste ($27), and The Olgunca, which augments pasta, meat, and veggies with an ambrosial symphony of flavors ranging from wild grasses to luscious butter ($27). Ta-Ze also provides a smattering of gourmet products, including sun-dried sea salt ($7), capers ($4.50), and pomegranate glaze ($25). Ta-Ze also offers olive oil-based soap and lotion. Tastings and samples are frequently available in the store, so deciding which jars and bottles to buy isn't as hard as deciding which type of trash bag makes the best makeshift parachute.
- Not only did they let me taste whatever I wanted, every single item that I did taste was amazing. You can tell they pick out really high quality stuff for their store. – 655m94, Citysearch
- Upon entering the store, I was struck by its beauty and simplicity. Sparse shelves of olive oils and other products adorned the shop. I had no idea there were so many varieties and companies specializing in the production of olive oil. – Ed A., Yelp
