Lemons, olive oil, and ice cream. It might sound like a strange combination, but trust me, the flavors are outrageous. Every bite gives you a burst of lemony flavor followed by a full-mouth feel from the olive oil. The key is to use a high quality lemon-infused extra virgin olive oil. Olivette, in Darien, is a fantastic resource for incredibly fresh and pure olive oils. Their lemon-infused variety is what I used here. You could also make this recipe with their blood orange or lime infused oils.
The timing of the opening of this boutique specializing in single varietal, single origin extra virgin olive oils (EVOO) from around the world is brilliant. At Olivette, you taste before you buy.
Co-owner and General Manager Alina Lawrence said “This is a tasting room. You’re not going to go home and find out you didn’t like what you bought.” Gleaming stainless steel olive oil drums (fusti) line the walls and counters, each labeled in detail to provide tasters with complete product transparency, something unheard of in supermarket olive oil.
