Welcome to Stock Up, a weekly column where we highlight food and drink products, kitchen gadgets and other culinary tools worth buying. From a delicious extra- virgin olive oil perfect for dipping bread to an Atlanta-made alternative to lemon curd, here are three products we’re stocking up on right now.
A Primo Olio Extra Vergine D’Oliva di St. Cecilia
St. Cecilia recently began selling its own label of olive oil in 16.9-ounce bottles and we can’t get enough of it. Made exclusively for the Buckhead restaurant from Sicilian producer, Di Giovanna, this organic extra-virgin olive oil is super grassy and herbaceous, and tastes delicious over salads, as a finish for sauteed greens and grilled fish or as a dip for crusty bread. $25, St. Cecilia, 3455 Peachtree Road, Atlanta. 404-554-9995, stcciliaatl.com.
Mixte Cuisine Lemon Whipped Ghee
A refreshing change-up to lemon curd comes from local ghee producer Mixte Cuisine. We’re swiping this light, uber-smooth clarified butter on lemon poppy seed muffins, cranberry scones and other baked goods. Sold in 8-ounce jars, this flavored ghee also brightens steamed vegetables, roast chicken and anything else that loves a squeeze of citrus. $10, Available at the Brookhaven Farmers Market, Decatur Farmers Market or online at mixtecuisine.com.
Sheila G’s Chocolate and Toasted Coconut Brownie Brittle
