We now have Milanese Gremolata Olive Oil available for sampling and to buy in our store! Gremolata is a traditional Italian herb condiment consisting of fresh lemon zest, minced garlic, Italian flat leaf parsley and a hint of mint. The herbs and citrus zest are typically crushed together in a mortar to release their pungent essential oils. Try finishing your fish with this exciting flavor combination. It is also traditionally served with osso buco, veal and other slow braised dishes to add a zip of flavor.
