In our most recent newsletter, we shared some of The Olive Press‘ favorite ways to celebrate grilling season. From searing corn and adding some amazing Sriracha butter, (just mix up their Olive Press Sriracha spice), dousing Portabello mushrooms with their classic balsamic to marinading your best meats with their Italian blend, up your grill game with their line-up of spices, oils and vinegars.

But they’re not done sharing more delicious inspiration:

Basil-cally

 

 

Nothing says summer quite like basil does, whether that means you’re whipping up a Caprese salad, making bruschetta, pesto, or simply using some basil olive oil in your cooking, basil always adds a signature summer freshness to every dish. Try the infused basil olive oil on pasta dishes or the Arbequina EVOO for pesto and the heritage mission EVOO for bruschetta!

Need to perfect Caprese recipe? Here you go. 

Colorful Summer Tables

 

 

One of our favorite things about summer is that ALL the best produce is in season, and that means colorful tables! From cucumbers, radishes, tomatoes, and peppers, to zucchinis, carrots, and beets. This rainbow of food helps us not only eat healthier, but tastes delicious, and makes for some pretty pictures too! Our favorite place to stock up on the freshest ingredients from the garden? Hudson Greens and Goods of course. Their produce aisle is looking resplendent right now!

Olive Oil, Not Just For Dinner

 

Napa summer is definitely here and that means it’s hot and dry! Give your skin some relief with The Olive Press spa products, all handcrafted and made with extra virgin olive oils to help lock in hydration and nourish your skin.

Try our new favorite duo: ice cream and olive oil! You may think we’re crazy, but trust us, this is a showstopper. Drizzle any Extra virgin olive oil over plain vanilla ice cream, top with sea salt – and thank us later!

Spruce up your table with handcrafted goods in natural materials that reflect the colors of the season, including carved ceramic napkin rings, teak salt cellars, and Jenny Pennywood linen napkins.

Layering different textures adds visual interest whether on your table or elsewhere in your home. Wood Fiber Clay suggests topping a linen tablecloth with cotton fringe placemats and screen printed linen napkins in hand-carved ceramic napkin rings.  Your dishes don’t match? Not a problem! Mix and match complementary colors in fall tones for a seasonal look. Add teak salt cellars filled with specialty salts and mix in some vintage brass candle sticks to add some shine. Fresh herbs in small planters are a natural and inexpensive way to bring in greenery. Get more ideas from their tabletop shoot on For the Home.
