Happy, HAPPY Friday, sweet friends!! This has been a fun week, but I am elated to see it gone. *yawns* If you are following a belle on Instagram then you already got a peek at this fab goodness I’m about to share.
The other evening I spent some time at Strippaggio—a beautiful quaint shop filled with a wide variety of infused olive oils, vinegars, gourmet sea salts, plenty of wooden gadgets for your kitchen, plus much more.
This shop is filled with all types of goodies that would make any of you belles squeal. There’s so much to see, taste, & feel. Wanna know the best part? Strippaggio‘s walls are filled with lovely art that can be purchased as well.
If you throw down in the kitchen like the sis & I, then you already know that a well stocked kitchen with the best tools is a must. If you are looking for unique food finds, then this is a must-shop spot. I slurped & sipped on so many infused oils & vinegars. I tried everything from Lemon Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO) to Blackberry Balsamic Vinegar (perfect on salads & desserts)!!
Have a quick gander at some of the items I tried & absolutely adored. If you’ve had this experience, do tell us about it.
They have everything from Pink Himalayan sea salt to a pungent smokey one (sorry can’t remember the name).
This 18 Year Balsamic Vinegar was one of my faves at Strippaggio. The bomb.com!!! What I like most about this dark liquid goodness? Well, it’s sweet, tart, & a little tangy–like me of course! 🙂
These strawberries were bathing in their 18 Year Balsamic Vinegar. TOO divine, y’all! This was my first time tying something like this & I enjoyed it immensely.
I love, love, LOVE the fact that their bottles are made from glass & can be reused. That’s always a plus in my book!! Yours, honey?
Everyone seemed to be having a blast. I talked to several peeps & we oddly liked a lot of the same items that night. Pure foodie fun, y’all!!!
A shot on my way back to my car…. What a beautiful night, right?! I had a ball.
Each guest received a cute little gift bag filled with two mini bottles of EVOO. I haven’t tried them yet, but I did open my Basil EVOO below.
I added a couple of teapoons to my BBQ wings & corn that I rescued from my freezer the other night. Strippaggio‘s Basil EVOO is soooooo lovely. It smells so good & made my meal THAT much tastier. Basil is one of my FAVE herbs. There’s just something about its sweetness & aroma.
For those of you wondering… the bottle of evoo was around $25 w/tax & would easily make a great gift for anyone who loves healthy foods. Don’t you think?
Follow Strippaggio today to stay in the know! When the sis gets back home in a few months we’ll be making our way there together. After telling her about them she CANNOT wait.
Have a safe weekend… Until next time!!!
