Bellucci has been serving up extra virgin olive oil for years and it’s quickly becoming a favorite across the United States.  The Italian EVOO is fresh and traceable.  The olives are grown in Italy where it’s also milled and bottled.

Each bottle is fresh and includes the harvest date on the label.  It features an expiration date which  is closer to the time when EVOO begins to lose its peppery taste and nutritional values.

Garlic Bread Dip – The perfect combination of EVOO and balsamic vinegar with minced garlic, grated parmesan cheese, spices and and herbs like thyme and parsley make this dip the ultimate savory appetizer.

Authentic extra virgin olive oil has a peppery taste and is a sign of a desirable olive oil.  The taste is a sign of fresh pressed olive oil with a strong flavor.  It’s low in acidity and has a high degree of antioxidants.  It’s highly sought after in kitchens across the world and will quickly become a pantry staple.

Tuscan Herb Bread Dip – Fresh herbs, spices and Bullucci EVOO make this garden infused dip perfect for Italian night.

What I love most about homemade bread dipping oil is that it’s versatile and can be served for any occasion throughout the year.

Buy a gourmet gift set for the holidays that’ll include a full-sized bottle of Bellucci 100% Classic Italian EVOO, 100% Italian Organic EVOO and 100% PGI Oranice Toscano EVOO.  Plus, learn how to pair this food gift in the Ultimate Foodie Gift Guide here.

Each bottle is fresh, traceable and authentically Italian.  The bottles includes a lot number that allows it to be traced back to the specific mill where it’s harvested and milled in Italy.  The freshness of each bottle ensures the peppery taste that’s commonly desired with good quality extra virgin olive oil, such as Bellucci.  Its tamper proof spout ensures it’s 100% EVOO at any stage with no added chemicals like other brands.

Dark glass bottles helps to extend the life of EVOO.  Exposure to light causes extra virgin olive oil to begin to loose it’s nutrients.  Dark bottles help filter out too much light it might be exposed to.

Herb de Provence Dipping Oil – Simple French herbs such as those used in Herb de Provence make this a delicious dip to serve as an appetizer for any party.

    I absolutely love all these! We’re a little stuck with the usual olive oil and balsamic vinegar so having all these options is great. Cannot wait to try them all!

    I haven’t tried Bellucci’s olive oil– I’ll look for it! I’ve got a small collection of olive oil in my pantry (okay, okay.. I’m hoarding it. You caught me haha!). I bet that dip is AMAZING- I love all the add-ins!

    Such a great idea! I love flavoured oils which are infused with the freshest herbs and seasonings. It always surprises me how something so simple and rustic and taste so extremely delicious. I still remember the first time I experienced an authentic Italian dinner. Of course there was crusty bread and olive oils – just like this! And, I thought it was so peculiar – something I’d never seen before growing up in Maritime Canada. Well, keeping with dining etiquette, I tried it, and fell in love with the flavours. Now, it’s one of my go-to appetizers when I have company over. This is a great collection for the oil dip beginner. Cheers!

    I really think that recipes like this are just so important. There is nothing better than making your own sauces, stocks, condiments and dipping sauces like this. Cheap to make and full of attitude and flavor. For the sake of a few minutes work it is so easy to make a brilliant dipping sauce that will have everyone talking. I love your photos and (for the record) the garlic bread dipping sauce looks the pick of the bunch (but what a hard decision they all look great).

    I’m such a fan of olive oil dipping sauces or even just using them on salads. I don’t like to buy ready made dressings or sauces so you definitely have some great choices here.

    I love this recipe! I have a pre-made spice set for dipping oils, but I don’t like to use it because there’s always something missing in the taste. I’m definitely giving these a try!

    The oils look delicious and flavorful. My favorite is probably the garlic bread dip, cuz garlic and cheese makes everything taste so much better. But then again the Tuscan herbs add quite a flavor and aroma. Great recipes!

    What a lovely assortment!

    My inlaws are big fans of dipping oils – when they lived here in New York their favorite restaurant served them. Now that they’ve moved… I may need to make some for them the next time we go visit!
