Savor the Season with Primo Oils and Vinegars

Savor the Season with Primo Oils and Vinegars!

Tis the season to celebrate friends and family with food. Here at Primo Oils we would love to help you enhance your holiday favorites with our gourmet olive oils and balsamic vinegars. Sometimes you just want to put a new twist on a holiday favorite, like our Roasted Chicken Provence. Or maybe you’re looking for a new appetizer or side dish to surprise the palate. Whatever your culinary wish we would love to help you fulfill it.

Holiday Recipes

Our recipe database has a lovely selection of recipes that show off our gourmet olive oils and vinegars. Updating your recipe with a flavored olive oil or balsamic vinegar can help add a new and exciting flavor to some of your favorite foods. Are you having a relaxed gift exchange? Why not serve our Pizza with Figs, Prosciutto, Caramelized Onions, Fig Balsamic and Arugula. This is an excellent time of year for Figs and Arugula and nobody will be expecting a gourmet pizza to be served at your gathering.

Small Plates and Appetizers

Or you could serve several heavy appetizers or small plates for people to nibble on as the party progresses. Small plates are wonderful for holiday parties because people can mingle and chat. There’s also the bonus of not overloading your guests with too much food. It seems that everywhere you go during the holiday season people want to feed you. It’s nice to take a break and focus on a few small, delicious bites. The following appetizers served with Prosecco or flavored soda water would make a wonderful meal.

If these don’t suit your taste visit our recipes page on Primo Oils or stop in the store. We would love to help you pair our gourmet olive oils and balsamic vinegars with your favorite foods.

Desserts

What holiday gathering isn’t complete without dessert?!? We know we’re not alone in wishing that dessert was served first instead of last!

Primo Olive Oils and Vinegars are wonderful additions to this delicious course and sometimes can even be the main event. Have you tried using our Chocolate Balsamic Vinegar, reduced and drizzled over vanilla-bean ice cream? Or maybe make a batch of Blood Orange Brownies by substituting the oil with our Fused Blood Orange Olive Oil. We always love a good Olive Oil Cake. This recipe from Bon Appetite gets better with age and is perfect to keep on hand for guests that pop in for coffee or tea. Bonus Baking Tip! You can use your favorite flavored olive oil to make this recipe your own.

However you celebrate the holidays we hope that yours are full of good food, laughter, friends, and fun.

To your health!

Our first anniversary!

Primo Oils and Vinegars celebrates its one year anniversary

We believed that people with discerning tastes in the Kentuckiana region were ready to accept the concept of a tasting room presenting the highest quality extra virgin olive oils and balsamic vinegars from around the world.

Your enthusiastic response to our products and our exceptional customer service allows us to celebrate our first year as a local, independent retailer in October 2012.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!

Primo Olive Oils & Vinegar tasting room now open

Locally-Owned Store Carries Private Label Primo Olive Oils and Vinegars from Around the World

Featuring the freshest and most direct-to-market ultra premium extra virgin olive oils from around the world, Primo Oils and Vinegars is open at 3628 Brownsboro Road in the Chenoweth Plaza shopping center next to Gemelli Wine & Spirits and Breadworks. Primo will carry 20 pure and flavor-infused olive oils and 20 balsamic vinegars and will offer guests tasting opportunities directly from the “fustis” in which they are stored.

“There is such a difference between store-bought olive oil and fresh olive oil produced and shipped directly to us.  We wanted to share these great finds from the mills in Italy, Morocco, Portugal, Spain, Tunisia, Argentina, Australia and California, to name a few, with our hometown of Louisville,” says Beverly Bromley, who with her husband Bob Hundley, are proprietors of the new store. “And with Louisville being such a ‘foodie’ town, we knew that the concept would be embraced here.”

Currently there are more than 300 olive oil tasting rooms in the United States, many of them concentrated on the West Coast where domestic olive oil is heavily produced. Primo’s difference is that it will import the freshest olive oils and balsamic vinegars from the Northern and Southern hemispheres. After guests enjoy several tastings, they will be able to purchase their favorites in Primo labeled glass bottles. Prices range between $11-$30 for 200 ml and 375ml bottles.

Bromley, who has a background in retail management, and Hundley, who was involved in a local catering business, will also seek to educate Louisvillians about the health benefits and joys of preparing foods with olive oil. Primo hosts ongoing events with local guest chefs and wine experts that will be open to the public. Tasting events also can be scheduled for private parties of 4-12 during the day and after work from 5:00-6:30pm.

As part of the education process, Primo also offers the Primo Olive Oil Club, where members will receive quarterly shipments of hand-selected and limited quantity olive oils shipped directly to their homes. Members will also be invited to private tastings during harvest season and various other events.
