Foodie Tasting Room Infused Olive Oils

 


When we decided that east Texas would be home, I started venturing out to find my favorite places to shop and eat.

During that process we have met some amazing people. Some have become neat friends and others we consider family.  That’s when you know you’re in the right place, you find yourself standing before positive people who are seeking to do good just because it’s the right thing to do.

When the Foodie Tasting Room opened last fall, I was excited and every time I walk through the door, I’m reminded of my grandmother’s home. 

Why, because it has the scent of olive oil and fresh herbs in the air. That is how I grew up eating and still do to this day.

The inventory in this shop is fantastic but today I want to focus on their infused olive oil.  It took me awhile to try these oils because I was skeptical.

Sounds pretty silly but things just were not clicking until I tried the “Chive Evoo” and then I tasted the “Parmesan, Garlic & Rosemary” let’s just say all I wanted next, was to get home and cook.

How to use Infused Olive Oil

Everybody has their own ideas on how to cook with this oil.  I personally love it over a nice green salad with grilled chicken.

Some folks serve it with bread or crackers as a treat between meals.

This is what I do for meal prep:

    • First, I drench the pan with a swirl of oil and let it heat up for just a few seconds.  Make sure not to overheat as it can deplete some of the health benefits.
    • Then add your favorite protein like beef, chicken, pork, fish or shrimp. Include some of your favorite fresh vegetables, lightly cook and serve.  
    • Dinner in less than 20 minutes and it's so good.

It’s even possible to marinate prior to cooking. Seafood like fish and shrimp absorb the infused flavor and wow is it tasty.  

Robert and I love seafood, so maybe next time I’ll share one of my favorite recipes where I sprinkle with fresh basil.


For now, if you’re local, I want you to check out this awesome shop.  They’re inventory is always growing, and you will find more than just food.

The Foodie Tasting Room is a good place to shop for healthy choices and the customer service is always grand. Service with a smile I like that. 

If you're visiting in East Texas stroll through downtown Marshall where you will find, Foodie Tasting Room @ 314A N Washington Ave, Marshall, Texas.
