Give The Gift of Food: Benissimo Gourmet Cooking Oil Review
Disclosure: This product is a part of our holiday gift guide. I was provided a sample for review. Any and all opinions are my own and have not been influenced.
I will admit that I’m not the best cook in the world. I know I can improve my skills and do better, one way I do this is by having ‘New Dish Nights’ in our home. That means I look for a dish I’ve never made before, make sure I have everything on had and make it for dinner that week. It’s a great way to try new dishes and also improve my cooking skills, after all there’s only so many night you can eat the basic stuff. My hubby loved the idea and it’s been a fun growing tradition for us. I know some people though who are excellent cooks and they are always in the kitchen whipping up fantastic meals. I was given the opportunity to try a product from the Besissimo Gourmet Cooking Oil line and I was super excited.
I was send the Benissimo Mediterranean Garlic oil to review. As you can see from the bottle I’ve been using it a lot in my cooking. I finally took the photo so I could share my post with you. I really loved this product. It arrived wrapped tightly so the bottle would be secure and that same night I used it to make dinner. I’ve used it on angel hair pasta with a little grated Parmesan cheese and grilled chicken breast. It was so delicious. It gave the pasta a very nice taste and it was light and not over powering at all. In the photo above I am using it to mix with yogurt to make a yogurt marinated shrimp dish.

The finished dish. I got the recipe when reviewing the Hello Fresh meals program and it called for oil in the marinade. I decided to use the Benissimo oil because of the extra flavor it gave the dish and my family loved it. I’ve use this oil to cook sausages for dishes, I also used it to make a garlic toast when we had spegetti. It’s a great product that could be used in hundreds of different ways and that’s why it would make a great gift for any foodie on your list. You can buy them one of the many different flavors Hongar Farms has to offer.
The flavors offered by Hongar Farms:
Siciliano Garlic ~Roasted Garlic ~ Mediterranean Garlic ~ Italiano ~ Basil & Sun Dried Tomato ~ Pepper Oil ~ Balsamic Garlic ~ Parmesan Garlic ~ Lemon Pepper Oil
I would love to try all of these different flavors, expecially the Parmesan Garlic, Pepper Oil and the Basil & Sun Dried Tomato
