Oily Spring Gift
This bottle of olive oil boasts an elegant solution to the rancidity issue. Its bottle is a traditional Puglian jar, ceramic and stubbornly opaque, painted in a rainbow pattern that would look lovely in any kitchen (but particularly in a clean, white, modernist one. I'm sure you know a lucky someone who has a kitchen like that. The Toad covets such a kitchen). The added plus to this gift is that this olive oil is fabulous, classically cold pressed liquid gold, squeezed from fancy Coratina olives. In other words, this is a lovely oil in a lovely vessel that isn't all rancid and nasty. What a great gift! And in spring colors, too!
Find this oil in the jar of many colors at Dean & DeLuca.
