Eclectic, quirky, and sometimes edgy…this is how things look from my front porch.

Savor the Olive

We had breakfast out this morning and did some shopping in the Ghent area of Norfolk, Virginia.  Savor the Olive is a small, specialty gourmet shop that sells olive oils from many different countries and from various types of olives.  

The gates you see above originally came from a chateau in France. They're gorgeous with a rusted, old world charm.

Today I purchased one oil that had been pressed with Persian limes and another which was pressed with Blood Oranges.  These flavored oils are sublime in a summer salad. 

The store also sells gourmet salt, various varieties of balsamic vinegar, including one that is infused with chocolate.  Yes, please!
