MARCA VERDE EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL
The fruitiness boosts the flavor of any dish—especially roasted veggies.
Maldon Sea Salt Flakes
Talk about flavor! Add a tiny pinch to take any meal to the next level.
Steak Tagliata with Arugula and Fried Capers
Turn simple into stunning with this classic Italian dish.
You wouldn’t think it, but sea salt is great at enhancing sweetness—try it on chocolate chip cookies or even ice cream!
NIELSEN-MASSEY MADAGASCAR BOURBON PURE VANILLA EXTRACT
Distinct, rich flavor for luxuriously sweet goodies. I use it to enhance many desserts.
CLASSIC VANILLA BEAN CHEESECAKE
Pillow-soft and oh-so-delicious—you might want to make two.
For more intense flavor, swap vanilla bean extract for paste—it’s a 1:1 swap and will easily take any recipe to the next level!
VALRHONA COCOA POWDER
Chocolate is my favorite thing to eat and Valrhona is excellent—a great addition to baking.
CHOCOLATE STOUT CAKE
The quintessential dessert gets an adult twist thanks to rich stout.
Always sift cocoa powder for a smoother finish. It’s also a much better choice than flour when dusting cake pans.
12-YEAR AGED BALSAMIC VINEGAR
A great way to get that cooked-all-day taste, and it’s even great on fruit or ice cream.
This traditional salad offers up a taste of summer in every bite.
For a quick dessert macerate fresh berries with balsamic vinegar—it draws out juices and enhances sweetness.
OLIO SANTO EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL
I love pairing this with aged balsamic vinegar and pizza herbs for a great bread dip.

Should be on the top of every home cook’s list. Try it on fries, popcorn...you can’t go wrong.
CLASSIC FRENCH FRIES WITH TRUFFLE MAYO
French fries are always tasty, but truffle mayo takes them to the next level.
Truffle has an intense flavor, so use sparingly. It’s great on starches like risotto, mashed potatoes or pasta.
