Infuse Your Jazz Brunch With Mediterranean Groove

Infuse Your Jazz Brunch With Mediterranean Groove

July 29, 2017

Every music lover knows that you can fall in love with a song the first time you hear it. Like love at first sight. That initial visceral reaction touches every nerve, and you are compelled to listen again and again and again. The more you listen, the more the story of a song unfolds, revealing its nuances and patterns...and you learn to love it even more deeply. 

Appreciation for great olive oil begins with the same first taste and first love. Part of the beauty in jazz and olive oil lies in understanding  and appreciating its elements and subtleties, in becoming part of the process.
Every bottle of Olio Taibi is a song, each with its own story of my four generation family farm in Sicily.  Each one is infused with the unique collisions of Olio Taibi: tradition and innovation, passion and precision, my hometown a world away in Agrigento, Sicily and my life and family here in Boston, but most of all: excellence and love.
I hope to share with you the process of loving and appreciating world class olive oil, help you transform your cooking (and your health), and add another dimension of passion, learning, and joy to your life.
Visit for local events and tastings, recipes, and a documentary filmmaker's inside look into the history and production of Olio Taibi.
