Olivastro in Phoenix: What We Bought, What We Skipped and What We're Still Lusting Over

Page 3 of 3

What We're Still Lusting Over: Next time we drop in to Olivastro, we're definitely going to pick up some aged lavender balsamic, which we'll quickly incorporate into both sweet and savory dishes for a great floral kick. We were also left wanting the authentic, made in Moderna, Italy jarred balsamic pesto alla Genovese from Cascina Marchesa, which looked great but was $10 for a little jar. However, it seems all of the oil and balsamic options have great potential in one way or another to add a unique kick to your favorite dish. The oils even make great soaps, which are already prepped and ready for your purchase at the store.
