Those of you who have transitioned into a healthier lifestyle may at first find it restricting. You may feel your list of available (approved) ingredients have diminished. The truth is there are plenty of delicious options for you to spice up your menu, but you do have to do some digging. During our trip to Park City, we found two little gems that will expand my culinary horizons: Mountain Olive Oil Company and F’n Hot.
Mountain Olive Oil Company is a tasting bar and a mecca for foodies. We were initially overwhelmed with the kegs of oils and vinegars all available for sampling. We didn’t know where to start until the really nice salesperson gave us a few of their bestsellers to try. We got to sample (and purchase) infused olive oils such as Tuscan Herb, Harissa, and Herb de Provence and balsamic vinegars infused with dark chocolate, espresso, and cherry. Each oil or vinegar was so flavorful and yet so different it can transform your roasted veggies, salads, marinades, or even desserts. We ended up buying a few bottles, which we’ll happily find a way to serve at our Holiday Party on Dec 10th!
At first, F’n Hot looked like your run of the mill tourist hot sauce shop until we walked in and saw their IFNH (It’s F’N Hot) signature products: Habanero Garlic Sauce (rated 3/10 on their hot scale), Red Savina Ghost Crush Hot Sauce (8/10), and Naja Jolokia Wasabi Hot Sauce (13/10!). They also sell wing sauce with real butter! What we liked best about their hot sauces were the purity of their ingredients. No canola or soy oils, HFCS, etc. Unfortunately, the website doesn’t post the ingredient list, but I’m hoping that’ll change in the future.
Both of these stores sell their products online and offer very reasonable shipping rates.
