Olive Oil and Vinegar: More than a salad topping


King's Olive Oil Pairings

I often only think of using olive oil and vinegar as a salad dressing, but it can be used for so much more.  On a recent assignment I visited King’s Olive Oil, which sell premium grade extra virgin olive oils, balsamic vinegar and speciality food items.  The oils and vinegar come in numerous flavors and I got to sample fig balsamic vinegar, Persian lime olive oil, basil olive oil and much more.

During the shoot we sampled two wonderful desserts: vanilla bean ice cream with peach white vinegar and brownies made with blood orange olive oil.  Both were delicious and super easy.

I loved the brownies so much I went home and made a batch. They were a huge hit and everyone was impressed with my culinary prowess.  I mean, blood orange brownies, that even sounds fancy.  Here’s the secret: replace the oil in brownie mix with King’s Olive Oil infused oil and voilà Blood Orange flavored brownies.

I am a freelance photographer and writer, working for various magazines, cookbooks and blogs. I love what I do, but I have a lot of restrictions depending on which brand and publication I'm working for. This blog gives me the opportunity to have fun. I'm also a pretty terrible cook, so this blog is forcing me to learn some kitchen skills, which is both thrilling and infuriating. I hope you enjoy reading the blog, half as much as I enjoy making it.

  1. Love the styling with the chalk and blackboard! Such a nice contrast with black/white and the vibrant colours of the food.
