Denver Food Tour - Stop #3

I think Chelly was just warming us up, because this was probably our favorite stop of the tour. Mick and Carolyn Major run EVOO Marketplace. They are located on the corner of 15th and Market in a beautiful space. One wall is all brick and two of the other walls are glass and brick. It creates a wonderful atmosphere to try their dozens of olive oils and balsamic vinegars. We had no idea there were so many flavors of each and if you ask, Carolyn will give you a some great combinations to try.

We also learned the difference between "fused" oils and "infused" oils. Infused oils refer to an ingredient that's been added (think rosemary or lemon) to the oil after it's been pressed. These are nice, but have a very short shelf life. Fused oils, on the other hand, are olive oils that have the additional ingredients added at the same time the olive oils are being pressed. They create a much more flavorful oil and have a much longer shelf life.
