Food Find: Bariani Olive Oil

posted on July 19, 2007 at 8:28 am

When I lived in San Francisco, my visits to the Ferry Building Farmer’s Market were a Saturday morning ritual. I’d mingle with my fellow shoppers and buy a load of local produce and artisanal products while looking out at the bay–I miss it terribly. My favorite olive oil was sold by a little company called Bariani and my pantry was never without a large bottle of that liquid gold that I used on just about everything I made in my tiny kitchen. It is an unfiltered and cold-pressed extra virgin olive oil just bursting with flavor–I believe they use manzanillo and mission olives for the oil. I was at Cabbagetown Market for a quick lunch the other day and was overjoyed to find that they were carrying it–I think they are the only retailer in Atlanta although Lisa Hanson, the owner of the market, told me that Muss and Turners may stock it as well. I bought a large bottle for around $26.50 and have been using it in every recipe since–it made an especially delightful pesto that I mixed with perciatelli pasta, fingerling potato slices, and green beans.

    Me and my Husband were in San Francisco last week and we went to the market. Oh my goodness, it was like a religious experience for me, I belong there! We brought Mt. Tam Cheese from Cowgirl Creamery, a Twinkle Baguette from Acme Brad Company and Salami from Golden Gate Meat Company and had a little picnic before heading over to Sausalito. Tony Bennett was right, I left my heart there, and I can’t wait to go back!
