CHALLENGE: Create a recipe using olive oil and balsamic vinegar from the Barrie Olive Oil Co. Lisa heartily accepted and she, Jenn and I attended a full Barrie Olive Oil tasting experience to invigorate and inspire her taste buds. This culinary delight is the result of her flavourful imagination.
Our tasting at the Barrie Olive Oil Co. was deliciously overwhelming. They have so many flavours of oils and vinegars to choose from. Heaven for me. I can’t wait to cook with their harrissa infused olive oil…
I chose their butter infused olive oil and their chocolate balsamic vinegar to create this cake. The cake recipe is adapted a recipe by Lidia Bastianich… who is, in my opinion, The Authority on Italian cooking.
Find the recipe for Hazlenut Torte with Mascarpone Icing in the card at the top of the post.
Thank you Barrie Olive Oil Co. for the tasty inspiration!
