Learning how to host a Gourmet Blends’ balsamic vinegar and olive oil tasting party is easy when you consider all the pairings and infused oils we have prepared for you. See our article on the most sensational balsamic vinegar and olive oil pairings ever.
Just as a wine tasting is the mark of a true wine lover, a balsamic vinegar and olive oil tasting is the mark of a true food lover – and a creative party host. Designed to spark an interest in – and a refined palate for – truly great, artisan-made balsamic vinegar and olive oil. A Gourmet Blends suggested Balsamic Vinegar and Olive Oil Tasting Party is completely unique, surprisingly fun and extraordinarily easy.
At this party you will want to serve up Gourmet Blends barrel aged balsamic vinegar, premium infused olive oils, and dipping oils as a base. Provide Gourmet Blends balsamic vinegars and the olive oils you have selected as pairings (such as our white balsamic vinegar and basil olive oil), and show folks how to dip into these pairings with delicious breads (from your local bakery) for flavor instead of using butter on the breads. Panera Bread and Gourmet Blends products taste great together.
With a setup consisting of little more than monkey bowls and serving dishes of balsamic vinegar and olive oils, our paired infused olive oils and balsamic vinegars (add a touch of salt and pepper to taste) and bread cubes with toothpicks in them, it’s a party that’s easy on the host. Yet the simple act of learning about and tasting one of the essential building blocks of western cuisine is a treat for everyone, even the most seasoned chefs and connoisseurs.
For both the artisanal producers, super tasters and chefs on the Gourmet Blends’ team and the educated home cook, balsamic vinegar and olive oil is more than just food. It’s a living art. Party on and Bon Appetit.
