Medicine Hat Gourmet Oils and Vinegars – Chrissie DiMeglio

The sun has been shining and with it, patio season has arrived. There are few things in the summer time as enjoyable as sipping cold drinks, eating delicious fresh food and laughing with friends on the deck. The Hat’s Olive Tap is ready to help you make your next BBQ an event your friends and family won’t stop talking about.

Adding one of our Ultra Premium Infused Olive Oils and Balsamics into your favorite dish is a simple and great way to add a whole lot of flavour with very little work. Try marinating your chicken skewers in Chipotle EVOO and Pineapple White Balsamic for a delicious home made sweet and sour sauce packed full of natural flavours. Serve with a side of roasted potatoes and veggies drizzled with Cayenne Olive Oil for a nice little spicy kick!

Did you know that white Balsamics can be used for so much more than just salad dressings or sauces? Cool down in your backyard this summer by keeping your freezer stocked with balsamic popsicles or bring a pitcher of Balsamic Sangria with you to your next backyard BBQ. Your friends will be dying to know what your “secret” ingredient is that’s making this treat so tasty! By using an infused white Balsamic in these refreshing treats you can share with all members of your family with a clear conscience. A Balsamic popsicle will be naturally flavoured and contain only natural sugars. Who ever knew you could do so much with vinegar?

Let’s not forget that Father’s Day is right around the corner. We can help you find the perfect gift for the dad who is the Master of the Grill. Our themed gift sets of finishing salts will be a sure hit with the man that has everything. These salts are great on the grill, wings, and even as a drink rimmer for a cocktail. So slip on your flip flops and head down to The Hat’s Olive Tap and let us help you plan your next BBQ menu. While you’re here you can even pick up some fresh local produce from our local greenhouses for tonight’s salad. Your next gathering is one that will be sure to get “olive” your friends and family talking for the season!
