Tasty Does Not Take a Lot of Time

You can add that extra WOW to any dish without any additional effort!

None of us have infinite time but we all want to have a tasty meal. Something delicious, but not the same each and every time. We want our guests, and ourselves, to say “WOW that’s good!” and “how did you do that?” without spending all day cooking.

Take the simple salad or greens. Make a vinaigrette (3 parts oil to 1 part vinegar; some people like 2:1 so play around yourself). You need oil and vinegar, some diced shallot and garlic, a pinch of salt, and bit of pepper. No matter which oil or vinegar you choose, the preparation time is the same.

It is easy, and fun, to play with your oil and vinegar choices. One day use a spicy Tuscan Extra Virgin Olive Oil like the Organic DOP Mannucci-Droandi, and another day try the fruity Olivar de la Luna Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil from Spain. They are very different in flavor profiles and thus you, and your guests, will experience two completely different salads, just by making this one simple change. Go a little further and instead of using Extra Virgin Olive Oils try Hazelnut, Walnut or Pumpkin Seed Oils. A friend of mine surprised me the other day, she put a few tablespoons of the J. Leblanc Pumpkin Seed Oil on a bed of aragula. This was our entire salad course. WOW!!! It doesn’t get much easier, or dare I say tastier, than that! I added a small pinch of Maldon Organic Sea Salt for a bit of salty flavor!

Start small and expand. Grab the Mannucci-Droandi DOP Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil for your spicy Italian, the Veleta Extra Virgin Olive Oil for your fruity Spanish, the O Meyer Lemon for a citrus infused extra virgin olive oil, and the J. Leblanc Hazelnut Oil for your nut oil. Now add the O Champagne Vinegar, the Honey Apple Sparkling Cider Vinegar, the Ginger Rice Vinegar, and the 50 Year Gran Capirete Sherry Vinegar. That’s SIXTEEN different salad dressings you can make by mixing & matching. And we haven’t even exhausted all the oil and vinegar possibilities at Gourmet-Delights.com.

Play around with different salts (Truffle, Black Cyprus Flake, Hawaiian Red Alaea, Fleur de Sel, and Salish Smoked) or different peppercorns (Green, Long, Pink, Cubeb, Four Pepper Blend) and the possibilities are almost endless (14,560 combinations if you have all the oils, vinegars, salts, and peppercorns we sell)!

Want to add additional fun and flavor?? Pop open a jar of Radici Organic Artichokes, Organic Piquillo Peppers, Grilled Fennel, Marcona Almonds, or add some wonderful seafood. It takes maybe 2 minutes to open the jar and put them on your plate. You've added more variety, more flavor, with hardly any effort at all! That's my idea of tasty without additional work!

And finally, have you ever considered a truffle oil vinaigrette? We love this very simple Asparagus with White Truffle Oil Vinaigrette Recipe.

With almost 300,000 possible flavor combinations from the Gourmet Delights pantry, all for just a few minutes of work, you will never get bored having "just a salad".

Vera Cruz Vanilla is the exclusive U.S. importer of the Orlando Vanilla Company. Founded over 30 years ago by the Ramos family, their small, family-owned and operated business begins with hand selected, prime vanilla beans from their native origin of Mexico!

"We don’t sell vanilla from all over the world; we make the best vanilla in the world!"

The beans are prepared in small, quality controlled batches by the nurturing hands of “La Familia”. They are not interested in making vanilla for millions of people. They take pride in making their vanilla for the discerning person that recognizes quality. In order to achieve the best quality, all the work is done by hand.

These vanilla beans are aged for over one year. This aging process allows the beans to develop the hundreds of flavor components found in the bean, and allows these different flavor components to blend together. The major flavor component found in the vanilla bean is naturally extracted pure vanillin, and they blend this vanillin in a way that stabilizes the flavor during the cooking process. This natural "vanilla extract" is a mixture of several hundred different natural compounds in addition to the pure vanillin. This process creates the sweet, creamy taste you experience when using this exquisite vanilla.

These beans are grown naturally, in an eco-friendly manner, using citrus trees to support the vines, and a natural mulch to provide nourishment to these fragile vines. They never use chemical fertilizers to create this all-natural vanilla.

Vera Cruz is the the highest quality gourmet vanilla you can find in the world. It is our favorite and we are sure it will be yours! Please try a bottle to experience our delicious hand selected vanilla today!

Unlike most vanilla extracts on the market, this vanilla has a very very low alcohol content (2%) so you only get the pure vanilla taste with no alcoholic "hit". It's a healthy and natural way to enhance flavor in what you're eating without all the sugar or calories.

A chef at a 2-star Michelin restaurant in Paris turned us onto this fabulous vanilla. Since this chef could make their own extract, yet still buys Vera Cruz, we are very confident this is the best of the best, not only to our palates, but to experienced palates around the world. Add a bottle to your kitchen pantry today!

madonna_raro_extra_virgin_olive_oil.jpg Madonna Raro Extra Virgin Olive Oil (2013)

Antonino Mennella is a passionate young extra virgin olive oil producer from the Salerno area of Campania, Italy. On his small 2,000-tree farm he produces this limited edition Raro ('rare') extra virgin olive oil by removing the pits of the Ravece and Rotondella olives, and then only pressing the remaining fruit. This process is known as "denocciolate".

This pitting before pressing is unique, and it creates an extraordinary extra virgin olive oil unlike any other you will find.

Antonino uses advanced pressing and processing technology to provide a super extra virgin olive oil with double the average content of polyphenol antioxidants, and an astoundingly low level of free oleic acid. As a result, this extra virgin olive oil has almost the same level of freshness as an olive still on the tree.

La Madonna dell’Olivo has optimal levels of vitamin E tocopherols, and Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids. This extra virgin olive oil has a remarkably well balanced flavor profile and is thus a ‘double winner’ -- an elixir of good health with amazing flavor.

This is a deep, intensely fruity extra virgin olive oil with irresistible aromas.

"My objective," says Antonino, "is to fight uniformity and exalt differences." Try this Raro Extra Virgin Olive Oil and you will see exactly what he means!

  • 96 out of 100 points in the esteemed Flos Olei 2011 Guide to the World’s Best Extra Virgin Olive Oils by Marco Oreggia

The Castillo de Canena estate has produced exceptional extra virgin olive oils in the Guadalquivir Valley of Andalusia in the south of Spain since 1780. This exceptional smoked oil is artisanally crafted by slowly infusing their high quality, hand-harvested Castillo Arbequina Extra Virgin Olive Oil with naturally produced smoke from a mix of organic oak, beech, and birch woods. When you open the bottle you will smell, and taste, exquisitely smoked Arbequina with undertones of caramel, vanilla, and toffee. This unique oil is divine on its own, or you can pair it with your favorite recipes to add a smoky component to your dressings, marinades, and final dishes.

  • Drizzle it on:
    • Vegetables

    • Soup
  • Use it to make a smoky hummus
  • Pair it with your favorite vinegar for a smoky, delicious dressing or marinade

In order to produce this wonderful, exquisite, cutting-edge cold smoked extra virgin olive oil, Castillo de Canena designed a unique process. Their burner allows the wood chips to slowly smolder. The smoke is then cooled, and passed through a water filter. They then slowly, over the course of 6 hours, release the cold smoke into the bottom of the tank which holds the Arbequina Extra Virgin Olive oil. This artisanal process naturally imparts the smoky flavor and aroma into the oil.

  • Special blue bottles protect the extra virgin olive oil from harmful light.

Back in stock September 2014.

Raymond Blanc, owner of the Michelin 2-Star Restaurant Le Manoir aux Quat' Saisons, says "Belazu's Balsamic Vinegar is a must have ingredient in any kitchen, we wouldn't be without it at Le Manoir aux Quat' Saisons."

Carefully produced by a small family firm in Modena, Italy, this exceptional vinegar is a blend of cooked Trebbiano grape must (unfermented grape juice) and red wine vinegar. Over time, the blend evaporates in a series of wooden casks and the natural fruit sugars in the must contribute to the viscosity, and sweetness, of this remarkable vinegar.

The Good Housekeeping Institute Taste Test (August 2002, UK Edition) voted Belazu 1st Choice, starting that Belazu was a deep, rich brown vinegar with a thick, treacly consistency, a delicious oak flavour, hints of caramelised sugar and good contrast to the sharp acidity. You cannot imagine how good and mellow this is.

belazu.White.balsamic.jpg Belazu White Aged Balsamic Vinegar

One of Modena's most distinguished Balsamic vinegar manufacturers has produced this delicate condiment which blends white grape must with white wine vinegar. A condiment rather than a vinegar because of its low acidity, the White Balsamic follows the standard methods of Balsamic Vinegar production. The white grape must is cooked at low temperatures in a vacuum to avoid darkening the blend before it is matured in a series of wooden oak casks.

Use in exactly the same way you would any other vinegar. Ideal for finishing meats in the pan, or for adding to salad dressings when you don't want to color the food with a traditional, dark balsamic (e.g. prawns or mozzarella).

"It's a great product – gentle, smooth, and well balanced – and makes muddy salads a thing of the past" - Anthony Worrall Thompson, Daily Express

These exquisite anchovies, packed in the finest Spanish olive oil, are hand-packed according to traditional methods using carefully selected fresh fish harvested off the Cantabrian Coast in northern Spain.

The anchovy, a traditional food of the Basque Country, is a mainstay of this region's fishing economy. The Spanish name "boqueron" comes from the size of the anchovy's mouth or boca, which is large in proportion to the rest of the body. Anchovies are typically harvested in the spring when they accumulate the most fat and flavor. Small nets are used to protect the quality of the fish and reduce by-catch. Once caught they are gutted, placed in barrels with salt-layer separations, and weighted. Once the fish has matured, about 3-7 months, it is washed to remove bones and skin, and canned with high quality olive oil.

Anchovies are high in Omega-3 fatty acids which help in the prevention of cardio-vascular disease and reduce cholesterol. They are also rich in iodine, calcium, Vitamins A, D, B12, B6, B2 and unsaturated fatty acids such as linoleic acid.

  • 100% natural.
  • No preservatives or chemical additives.
  • This product has been produced free of soy, gluten, nuts, dairy, and genetically engineered ingredients.

Ingredients: Anchovies, olive oil, salt.

For maximum flavor and freshness please keep refrigerated once you receive them.

In a mild mini-climate near the town of Guèrande in the cultural region of Brittany, France there are centuries old salt fields. In this unique location the currents of the Atlantic run cleaner than in many of the other salt harvesting regions of France. As a result, Guèrande produces the best salt in all of France.

On warm, breezy afternoons (i.e. when there is no rain) an artisan paludier (craftsman salt harvester) like Gilles Hervy can "sweep" the crystallized top of the evaporating sea water. This harvested salt, the Fleur de Sel, is the most delicate, purest part of the saline. What remains and crystallizes throughout the rest of the season is the Sel Gris. The harvest ("forming") is usually from May to September. For every 80 pounds of Sel Gris produced, they can harvest only one pound of the precious Fleur de Sel.

Fleur de Sel is an all-natural sea salt from Brittany, France. It is unprocessed, unrefined, and unadulterated. It does not contain anti-caking or anti-flowing agents. It is known as the "Caviar of Salts".

The Gilles Hervy family (husband, wife, two sons, and a daughter) sells the best, most consistent quality Fleur de Sel in the world.

salish_fine_artisan_s.gif Salish - Alderwood Smoked Sea Salt (fine) by Artisan - Cork Jar

Salish is a fine grain sea salt that is cold smoked over real Northwest red alderwood to give a clean, natural smoky flavor. No artificial flavors, colors, or liquid smoke is used to create this beautiful salt.

Salish refers to a cultural or ethnographic designation of a subgroup of the First Nations or Native American cultures in British Columbia, Washington, and Oregon who speak one of the Coast Salish languages. As the first inhabitants of the Pacific Northwest, they have used the red alderwood of the Northwest to smoke meats and salmon for hundreds of years. We are proud to be able to bring to you this salt, created in the ancient Northwest smoking tradition.

Salish gives food a genuine smokehouse taste on or off the BBQ.

The ultimate for cooking fish, chicken, or steak. We love it on salmon, fresh avocado slices, creamy pasta dishes, and it is great in soups!

Saveur Magazine said Bonito tuna is "one of the great gastronomic pleasures of every day life."

The belly or "Ventresca" of the Bonito del Norte Tuna is the softest and most delicate part of the fish. It presents a much lighter and sweeter palate than the rest of the flesh of the fish, and is considered an exquisite delicacy.

Bonito del Norte is found in the coastal waters of the Bay of Biscay in the Basque region of Spain during the summer season when they come north to dine on the Cantabrian Anchovy. The Bonito del Norte is the most valued member of the tuna family, highly appreciated for its white flesh, exquisite flavor, and delicate texture. This Ortiz specialty is fished using artisanal fishing techniques with the philosophy that we must preserve our earth and its resources. Each tuna is individually line caught and not netted. They are fully dolphin safe.

Within 24 hours of being caught,the best belly fillets are selected, cooked in seawater, and then hand-packed in olive oil to keep them moist and flavorful.

savini_sliced_black_truffle.jpg Savini Sliced Black Truffle

The Savini family business is world famous for their truffles. Starting in the 1920s, and continuing to this day, the family tradition of handcrafted truffle products has spanned over four generations.

During the harvest, the truffle gatherers collect both large and small truffles. The biggest ones are sold fresh to restaurants, while the smaller ones, with equally impressive flavor, are sliced, and through a very special proprietary method, preserved in olive oil. The flavor is identical to the fresh truffles, with the added benefit that you can keep them unopened in your kitchen for more than a year, and thus can have "fresh truffle flavor" anytime on a moment's notice.

These sliced black truffles are of the highest quality, and the Savini family ensures the origin of each and every truffle. This guarantees both the quality and the freshness. Every jar shows a "best by" date so you know you are getting the freshest truffles available.

  • Start your day off with a perfectly cooked egg and some sliced black truffles.
  • Stuff sliced black truffles under the skin of a chicken before roasting.
  • Add some slices to freshly cooked pasta... amazing!
  • A few slices on hot seared or grilled scallops is otherworldly.
  • Mix them into your risotto 15 minutes before it is done to make truffle risotto!
  • Save the olive oil, and you have authentic truffle oil!

Ingredients: 62% Italian black truffle (Tuber aestivum Vitt.), olive oil, salt, aroma, garlic, aromatic herbs, spice.

Shelf stable. Refrigerate after opening.

The Savini family business is world famous for their truffles. Since the 1920s, the family tradition of handcrafted truffle products has passed down over four generations.

Large visible pieces of real truffle are in every jar.

  • Put it on hot baked potatoes, mashed potatoes, and french fries.
  • Place a spoonful on your hot steak and watch it explode with truffle flavor.
  • A little bit with seared or grilled scallops is otherwordly.

  • Mix together an egg yolk, a teaspoon of truffle butter, copious amounts of grated parmesan cheese, and two teaspoons of extra virgin olive oil as a sauce for pasta.
  • Rub it on a hot ear of corn on the cob.

AjiAmarillo_paste.jpg Aji Amarillo Organic Paste

Aji amarillo, or amarillo chili, is the most common type of aji and is one of the most important ingredients in Peruvian cooking. It has a heat level of 7 on a scale of 10 (50,000 Scoville units). Although they are named yellow pepper their color changes to orange as they mature. Great in combination with meat, poultry, fish, vegetables, pasta, and rice dishes, and to season nuts.

The unique flavor of the Aji Amarillo makes it worth seeking out and incorporating into your cooking. Even though it is a "chili pepper" it has a lot of fruitiness combined with its heat. This fruitiness is full-bodied and even subtle, unlike poblanos or jalapenos which can be harsh. It is a very versatile chili, suitable for everyday use as it will complement your dish without overwhelming it.

Back in stock late August 2014.

José Páez Lobato is a family enterprise that specializes in the making of fine sherry vinegar. The Bodega, or cellar, was founded in 1933 by Francisco Paez Sanchez, and is now managed by his sons.

This 50 year old sherry vinegar is characterized by its amber color, delicate smell, and unique taste... all of which are due to a careful and prolonged aging process. Gran Capirete is aged in American Oak barrels, and the solera that gave birth to it was established in 1946 (so it is actually 68 years old!). It has an unforgettable flavor, with a hint of nuttiness. This vinegar is drier than balsamic vinegar and has an acidity of 8º.

The production and quality of sherry vinegar is monitored and controlled by the Consejo Regulador, and sherry vinegar has its own Denominacion de Origen (D.O.) which is protected by Spanish and EU law. This vinegar carries the D.O. Vinagre de Jerez stamp of approval.

Its complexity and depth of flavor greatly enhances soups, stews, sauces, casseroles, marinades, and dressings.

belazu_preserved_lemons.jpg Belazu Beldi Preserved Lemons


Back in stock Summer 2014.

Preserved doqq lemons are an authentic, and essential, component of many North African, Mediterranean, and Indian recipes.

These traditional doqq lemons (Citrus limonum Risso var. pusilla R), known in Morocco as citron beldi, or l'hamd beldi, grow in the Taroudant region outside of Agadir.

The thinner skin, and fragrant aroma, of doqq lemons, makes them the most highly prized lemons of North Africa. Paula Wolfert, an expert on Moroccan cuisine, considers them the crème de la crème in her book "The Food of Morocco".

These lemons have a delicate "zing", along with a tantalizing sweet and sour aroma, that is unmistakably and evocatively North African.

A few serving ideas:

  • Add these lemons to tagines, roast chicken, fish, salsas, and salads - all kinds of Mediterranean cooking, to get that delicate citrus flavor.
  • Make a traditional Moroccan Tagine.
  • Create your own Ngam nguv, a traditional Cambodian chicken soup with whole preserved lemons.
  • Combine them in your recipes that use olives, artichokes, seafood, veal, chicken, and rice for added flavor and complexity.
  • Use them as an accompaniment to curd rice, which is often the last course in South Indian Cuisine.
  • Add the pickled pulp and liquid to Bloody Marys and other beverages where lemon and salt are used.
  • Combine preserved lemons with horseradish if you want to make an American-style cocktail sauce.

No artificial flavors, colors, or preservatives.

Wild Burgundy Snails, a timeless French delicacy, are finally available to gourmets in the United States. The preeminent purveyor in Burgundy, Henri Maire, has been satisfying the most discriminating palates in France since 1938. In Michelin-rated restaurants like Paris' Taillevent (#1 dining destination in the World, 2001 Zagat's survey), Chez Lasserre, and La Grande Cascade, and in nearly 400 of America’s top dining rooms, these snails grace the finest tables. Similarly, retail consumers who pride themselves on using impeccable products, serve only the best in their homes.

As with all gastronomic delicacies, escargots exhibit varying levels of quality. Henri Maire's snails have maintained an unwavering reputation for incomparable products amid the demands of the culinary capital of the world. The formula is quite simple, frankly. They begin with purely Wild Burgundy Snails (Hélix Pomatia Linne), delivered live. These savory delights are then hand-sorted by size, washed, and cooked in an aromatic bouillon according to the same ancestral standards used in 1938. These snails are treated and cooked according to the strictest hygienic standards (HAACP Certified) and are delivered to you in perfect condition.

24 snails per can; 7 1/5 fluid ounces; 4 3/8 ounces drained weight
