A Foodie Hostess Gift


Invited to a Christmas get-together?  Are the hosts  fellow foodies?  In the past couple of years, we have taken to replacing the traditional bottle of wine for the host, with a bottle of good olive oil!  What a great reaction this gift generates! Delivered in a lovely Christmas wine gift bag, it makes a wonderful alternative.  Flavored oils,  products of Provence and Puglia are a good choice.  Remember that, like wines, you pretty much get what you pay for, so the more it costs, the better it will be.  Calgary’s Italian Super Market, Lina’s and Williams and Sonoma are good sources.

Here are a couple of examples to get you started!
