Kosterina Olive Oil Duo

Kosterina Olive Oil Duo

EVOO is a key ingredient in so many of our favorite dishes. I pick extra virgin olive oil made from 100% Koroneiki olives harvested in southern Greece. They're loaded with polyphenols, powerful, naturally occurring antioxidants that are clinically proven to reduce inflammation in the body. This EVOO has a polyphenol content of 470 mg/kg. A set of the Kosterina Originals is perfect for foodies for all their drizzling, dressing, and dipping needs in a beautiful, blue-like-the-Mediterranean Sea gift box. ($49.95) Shop Kosterina here.


Raw Spice

Gift the holiday cook with 12 months of delightful spice surprises. The Raw Spice Quarterly Spice Subscription is the gift that keeps giving all year long. You can choose from 75+ salt free, freshly ground spices, with flexible delivery and quantity options. They're hand crafted for easy meals and come with lots of recipe inspiration.
