I was recently sent a sample of olive oil from Frances Mayes’s Bramasole. This is the olive oil that Frances Mayes, the author of Under the Tuscan Sun, Bella Tuscany and Every Day in Tuscany, has been producing for almost 20 years at her Tuscan home of the same name. It turns out that they have just launched an olive oil convivium where you can order a case of their freshly pressed olive oil to be delivered right to your door to enjoy throughout the year. I love cooking with olive oil and enjoy it’s many health benefits. If I had the space to hold a whole case of olive oil I would probably place my order right now. I tasted my sample with a simple bread for dipping. The oil had an exceptionally fruity taste. Over the past weeks I’ve drizzled it into salad dressings, over roasted vegetables and into soups. In each case the oil adds a distinctive depth of flavor, the kind that suggests the oil is of the highest quality. To join the Bramasole Olive Oil Convivium visit this website and begin enjoying the freshest Tuscan olive oil available in the U.S. Here is how it works:
1. Sign up for the convivium and commit to buying one case of olive oil each year.
2. The shipments are only sent immediately after the harvest and pressing. Once everything is shipped they do not fulfill orders until the harvest the following year.
