Chiappetta Olive Oil Review and Giveaway

What I love about olive oil is that it's so versatile.  You can swirl it around in your pan to cook meat or fish with, dip bread into it, drizzle it on pasta, and even use it as a salad dressing too.  The light and delicate flavor is unbeatable and makes so many dishes taste great. I think I'll be cooking dinner with olive oil tonight!



Chiappetta's story is close to 90 years in the making.  Originating in the Calabria region of southern Italy, the Chiappetta family has been producing the finest, most delectable extra virgin olive oil since the early 1900's. It was only a matter of time before the family began pressing and bottling their olive oil to sell to family and friends.  All who tried it thought it was nothing short of fantastic due to its fresh and aromatic flavor. 

I always have a bottle of olive oil in my kitchen cabinet.  I use it three to four times a week, so as you can see they don't last me for too long.  I was actually running low when I received the opportunity to try this olive oil, so it couldn't have come at a better time.

The company is local to me and just in the next town over, which I thought was a funny coincidence. The olive oil was mailed to me and I received it the next day after initially speaking.  I love fast customer service!

This large bottle contains golden colored deliciousness.

When the bottle arrived, all I could think about was soaking pieces of sourdough bread into it for a snack.  I warmed the bread in the oven for a couple minutes and then prepared to take a one way flight to flavor town.

The olive oil smelled very fresh and the color of it was stunning. It was as if the sun exploded and olive oil was made from it.  I dipped a piece of bread into the oil and it was immediately blanketed in the fabulous oil.  The flavor was unlike anything I had ever previously tasted. It was smooth and rich, and made my taste buds sing olive oil praises. The warm bread paired with the oil was the perfect midday snack. I absolutely loved it. The oil was heavier than what I'm normally used to, but that's because of the region where the olives are from. There was no harsh aftertaste at all.   No olive oil I have ever bought compares to the astounding flavor that comes from this glass bottle.

I look forward to using this olive oil for many future recipes I make.  You can purchase Chiappetta Olive Oil online here. It would make a wonderful present for a foodie friend or relative.
