Learn about the different grades of olive oil and the right way to produce flavored oils. Taste extra virgin oils from 8 different countries. Bring even more to your palate with a flavored oil where a savory, spicy, or citrus element has been crushed and pressed with the olives for a true flavor marriage.
Experience the sweet thickness of a good balsamic vinegar, either conventional, or with added fruit flavors such as blackberry, fig, cherry and more.

From our best area chefs:
Love going to Extra Virgin an Olive Ovation. I want to have everything there in my pantry.
- Ben Poremba, Olio, Elaia
Marianne Prey is a wealth of knowledge. Every time I go in there, I learn something new about olive oil.
- Gerard Craft, Niche, Brasserie, Taste, Pastaria
I like Extra Virgin An Olive Ovation for imported mustards, vinegars and olive oils. Incorporating these ingredients into a dish can change it significantly. For instance, a Zinfandel vinegar over a dessert is divine, and mustard in a soup is quite amazing.
