Day 12 - Liquid Gold Tasting Bar and All Things Olive

“Smooth, buttery, zesty, earthy, rich, deep, moody and delicious” is how the “Liquid Gold Tasting Bar and all things Olive” describes their “Olio Fresco” (Italian for fresh oil).  I couldn’t have described it better myself, my friend Liz and I spent an hour taste testing at Liquid Gold this summer, and it felt like a molecular gastronomy experience – a flavour burst for your taste buds.  When it came time to purchase our favourites my friend could only squeeze four 100ml bottles in the carry on plastic bag that you are allowed to take on your flight. Unfortunately the bottles could only be purchased in six packs. My friend was disappointed but instead of leaving unhappily the gentleman that was helping us worked his magic and sold her the four bottles instead. An A+ in customer service!

You are guaranteed fresh when you visit “Liquid Gold”. In spring/summer, their oils come from the southern hemisphere where the winter crop is harvested between May and July. In the fall & winter, their oils come from the Mediterranean. Their balsamic vinegars are from Modena, Italy. Liquid Gold also carries an assortment of gourmet oils, wine vinegars, condiments, olive leaf tea, Italian pastas, stuffed olives, sea salts, hand creams, skin moisturizers and soaps.

#MyDowntownWishList includes:

 The Savoury Pack - 6 bottles

 "Seasoned" Cookbook by Costas Halavrezos, olive oil and assorted items

 The Hot & Spicy Pack - 4 bottles

So many wonderful gift baskets :)

You can find Liquid Gold on 72 Queen Street and via their website, Facebook and Twitter.
