Heart Healthy for Valentine's Day

Muraglia Extra Virgin Olive Oil in Heart Bottle

With January being the month for New Year's resolutions like eating healthier, I just hosted a wine tasting featuring the wonderful Spanish Tempranillo wine - the only wine found in studies to reduce cholesterol and blood pressure. And in February in honor of Valentine's Day, I am featuring the wines and very healthy foods of the Mediterranean.

Central to the diet of the Mediterranean is olive oil. One of my favorites and a perfect gift for the chef in your life for Valentine's Day, is this wonderful bottle of olive oil.

The ultimate kitchen-to-table olive oil, this award-winning Italian oil works equally well for cooking and finishing. To preserve its rich flavor and aroma and protect it from sunlight, the extra-virgin olive oil is bottled for us in a hand-painted ceramic container that can be enjoyed as a vase or serving vessel after the oil is finished. Produced in Northern Apulia from Peranzana olives, Muraglia olive oil is cold-pressed using traditional granite grindstones for perfect structure and balance. The result is a robust, medium-fruity green oil whose peppery flavor offers notes of artichoke and fennel. Enjoy it in vinaigrettes, soups and sauces, or drizzled over pasta, grilled meat, chicken and seafood.  

Find it exclusively here. This makes a great hostess gift as well.
