How to pair Olio Nuovo with food

Olio Nuovo‘s robust, green notes make it a beautiful addition to many different dishes. Its assertive profile works best with rich or boldly flavored dishes. Following are our favorite foods to pair with this super fresh olive oil.

Creamy Cheeses + Olio Nuovo

Creamy cheeses (think mozzarella, burrata and ricotta) are a perfect vehicle to let the complex flavors of Olio Nuovo shine.
Why it works: The richness of the cheese provides balance to the robust boldness of the oil.
Extra Credit: Put a dipping dish of Olio Nuovo on a holiday cheese board and taste the oil with your favorite cheeses. We love it with a top quality Parmigiano-Reggiano or a nutty Manchego and some toasted baguette.

Sweet Veggies & Fall Fruits + Olio Nuovo

Roasted vegetables like carrot, butternut squash and sweet potato along with sliced, raw fall fruits like apples, pears and persimmons work beautifully drizzled with Olio Nuovo.
Why it works: The subtle sweetness is the perfect foil for the grassy, bitter notes in the oil.
Extra Credit: Drizzle a baked apple or poached pear with Olio Nuovo, honey and sea salt for an almost caramel-like treat.

Roasted Red Meats + Olio Nuovo

Holiday roasts are delicious with Olio Nuovo.
Why it works: Heartier meats with rich flavors are complemented by the peppery complexities of the oil.
Extra Credit: Get the best quality beef or lamb for a roast that you can find. Season simply with Olio Nuovo, salt and pepper before roasting. Serve sliced with more oil, salt and pepper. Savor the simplicity and the flavor!

Note: Olio Nuovo is the first olive oil available after harvest. It is typically available in stores and in our online shop in late fall through early winter.
