How to Use Ciampa Antico
“If I knew how to paint, I would devote myself to painting olive trees. Such richness in a single subject!” Aldous Huxley
Thanks to its specific qualities – low acidity, intense yet fruitful taste, delicately bitter after taste – Ciampa Antico can be considered the perfect oil for most purposes.
It can prepare the best “soffritto” when making a “pasta e fagioli,” or a “Bolognese meat sauce,” or when sautéing vegetables such as spinach or broccoli rape.
It is also apt for dressing salads, whether as simple as an oil & vinegar dressing, or preparing a French vinaigrette, an Italian or Lemon Zest dressing.
It can even substitute butter in a cake, making the cake healthier and lighter.
A simple “pinzimonio” made with Ciampa Antico offers special finger-food to your most elegant table: add some salt and pepper in a small bowl of oil, and dip your veggies into it. Simple as that!
