amelia oil.

June 29, 2009

I visited Italy for the first time last summer. We saw incredible sights, endured outrageously hot days, drank lots of wine, and ate some of the most incredible food. One thing I miss since our return to the states is the olive oil. There’s just something about the oil in Italy that is unlike anything I’ve had here.

I was so excited to learn about Amelia Oil a few weeks ago! The business is a Canadian mother-daughter duo who import olive oil from a little Italian town called Amelia. The oil is wonderful, and just like I remember in Italy {my order arrived just last week, and I’ve been savoring it!}. They use only fair trade practices, and sell oil from farmers whom they know personally. The oil is reasonably priced too…for a premium olive oil. I hope you will try it…you can learn more by visiting their site, or their blog!

Do you have a favorite vacation-food that you can’t get where you live? Since I’m asking, you’d better add California fish tacos to my list!
