Many people find vegetables boring and plain, but real chefs and cooking enthusiasts know that no food is ever dull if you add all the right ingredients to make even the simplest salads worth a chef’s kiss! When it comes to salads, of course, there’s no better way to level up your cooking than adding some salad dressing. But we are not talking about the most generic mayo salad dressing. We are talking about something with class and real Italian gourmet soul. What is this magical ingredient that holds the most important place in Italian culinary tradition? The answer is Italy’s beloved elixir - vinegar.
To help you discover the most luxurious Italian vinegar, we have prepared an outstanding selection of Italian chef’s favorite vinegar brand - Villa Manodori. With its roots dating back to the 16th century in Modena’s countryside, a restaurateur and an innovator, Massimo Bottura has been committed to reviving the Villa Manodori Acetaia to its grand past. For this collection, we have carefully selected all the best of Villa Manodori’s Italian vinegar and olive oil to ensure that you’ve got something for every occasion!
For starters, we absolutely recommend an Italian classic Villa Manodori balsamic vinegar, crafted in the home of balsamic vinegar, Modena, Italy. With its perfectly sharp and complex flavor, balsamic vinegar makes for a perfect option for glazing meats, drizzling onto fresh fruits, or making simple salad dressings when combined with top quality, premium Villa Manodori extra virgin olive oil. We also made sure to include an artisanal style Villa Manodori organic balsamic vinegar in our collection for a less processed, raw, and certified organic balsamic vinegar option.
For real chefs and cooking enthusiasts, this Italian brand has created a limited-edition collection of premium quality vinegar Villa Manodori Artigianale. Looking for a premium quality vinegar to use as a dressing on a salad and a glaze for pork, steaks, or poultry? Villa Manodori’s limited edition Artigianale balsamic vinegar will make for a perfectly sharp and tart-flavored vinegar.
Hint: Combine balsamic vinegar with a touch of honey, extra virgin olive oil, and balsamic mustard. Season to taste and create the most simple and delicious balsamic vinegar vinaigrette for the most luxurious salads!
Want something more unique, special, and premium? We have an exceptional Italian Villa Manodori wine vinegar handcrafted by the famous Italian chef Massimo Bottura himself. This artisanal masterpiece is crafted with the most luxurious ingredient - red Italian Barolo wine, known for its mellow premium flavor that complements salads, steaks, and pork. If you’re leaning more towards unusual, bold vinegar flavors, do not hesitate to experiment! Villa Manodori dark cherry vinegar makes for the perfect accompaniment to sweeter entrees and pork with its decadent, tart, and sweet flavors.
Another versatile condiment used all across Italian cooking is olive oil. Villa Manodori has made sure to bring a premium assortment of artisanal style, limited edition extra virgin olive oils intended to preserve and highlight the flavors when cooking. We use Villa Manodori garlic olive oil to add flavor to roasted meats, pasta dishes, and soups. For a more spicy and peppery flavor, try incorporating Villa Manodori black pepper in your pan-frying. Looking to add an aromatic, minty rosemary-like taste to your sauteed veggies, poultry, or simple roasted potatoes? In that case, Villa Manodori rosemary olive oil will make your cooking tastier and easier than ever!
