Olive Oil and so much more!

Olive oil has increasingly become a necessity in every kitchen. While traditional southern kitchens used to turn to vegetable oil (if somewhat healthy) or artery clogging lard, now we find olive oils being used more and more. Certainly, here at Sugar Pies we love using olive oil for sautes as well as in some baked goods (our Italian Olive Oil Cake). But olive oil can be wonderful as a stand alone product. Used for dipping or as a flavorful enhancement to many dishes.

O&CO. has been cultivating tradition, expertise, and high standards for over 15 years, in order to offer  customers the best selections of olive oils and delicacies from across the Mediterranean.

With a respect for tradition, O&CO. cherishes originality where tastes and smells converge to delight the senses. Emerging from the high Alpes-de-Haute, in the village of Mane, France, O&CO. became the brainchild of two men united around a common passion, the olive tree.

More than ten years since its creation, O&CO. has forged a new image of the olive tree, rooted in tradition but firmly anchored in the modern world. While olive oils serve as the foundation, O&CO. also offers an exclusive collection of vinegars, tapenades, spreads, crackers, and sweets as well as an organic skincare range that showcase the flavors and the spirit of the Mediterranean.

Wait, did I say sweets? Yes, O&CO. creates some wonderful sweet additions for your kitchen. I'm particularly entranced by the Lavender Honey which is harvested in August and contains the enticing flavors and aromas of Provence lavender fields.

If that doesn't get your taste buds excited how about the Clementine and Cinnamon Spread which brings together the marvelous taste of the clementine, "Queen of Winter Fruit" with warm cinnamon for a spread that hints of gingerbread? Simply unbelievable!

How about an Pistachio and Almond Torrone? Produced in the Piedmont region of Italy, O&CO's Torrone, otherwise known as nougat, is an artisanal confection made with pistachios from Bronte, honey, and well-whipped egg whites.

O&CO. is a destination for your own cooking experience as well as for gifts. Founded in 1996, O&CO's mission is to provide customer with the finest olive oils and Mediterranean food products in stores and online.

You simply must visit this wonderful destination and check out the range of wonderful flavors available from the Mediterranean region!
