More Napa Valley Noms!

{Posted on October 24, 2011}

Our Napa adventure didn’t just consist of partaking in glorious wines and visiting breath-taking vineyards, I also got my culinary fix as well. Much to my delight we stayed in St. Helena, also the home of the Culinary Institute of America – Greystone! Just walking around the majestic grounds, historic halls and observing the academia-mystique was a treat within itself. (Perhaps in my next life I just might enroll!)

For a little icing on the cake, if you will, just down the road in the quaint village is also one of my favorite little shops, Olivier. After years as an avid online customer (and in a specialty shop now and again) it was wonderful to be in the presence of all the deliciousness Olivier offers.

And if you’ve never had the opportunity to taste an aged balsamic vinegar, you’re missing out! Aging gives the vinegar an intense depth and richness, causing a thick syrupy goodness that is unparalleled. Olivier offers a 25-year-old balsamic that is just that. This dark, rich, decadent condiment of old is perfect drizzled on countless items including strawberries, watermelon, salads or grilled chicken. It truly takes foods to the next level!

Try some today, Olivier has a great offering, in a darling bottle, I might add! ($16.50 for 8.45 oz.) DEE-LISH!!

  1. Thank you so much for the blog mention! We hope you’ll come back and take a hands-on cooking class or a wine class on the weekends. You don’t have to be a professional student to enroll in those! We also have a Flavor Bar in our store that is open daily from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. In 20 minutes you can taste and learn about chocolate, super premium olive oils, or how to pair wines with cheeses. Hope to see you soon!
