Our Basil flavoured extra virgin olive oil is perfect for enhancing salads, such as Caprese salad, and raw tomatoes, for seasoning tomato sauces and soup. Try it drizzled on bread or bruschetta or alternatively make a simple dip. Instead of butter, drizzle it on baked potatoes together with fresh grated parmesan cheese. It’s also a great way to liven up eggs by cooking them in the oil..
To get the most out of your Calvi flavoured oil, when cooking with it it is important to keep it from warming too much as this can diminish the flavour.The Calvi flavoured oils also blend perfectly with our Calvi Extra Virgin Olive Oils and can be used together in varying proportions, depending on the strength of flavour desired.
Extra virgin olive oil must be stored away from direct sources of light since light greatly accelerates the natural phenomenon of oxidation. Prolonged exposure to heat also has a negative effect on the oil, even if less damaging than light. We advise you, therefore, to keep this product in a cool dark place, such as inside a kitchen cabinet and away from heat sources.
If you have stocked up on this product and want to keep it in the best possible condition, store the bottles closed at a temperature close to 15 °C, if possible (in the cellar or garage, for example).
