Our amazing LEEK cold fusion Olive Oil at Vine & Grind, has been one of the most challenging but also one of the most rewarding fusions made and we’ve received news  that it has taken a GOLD MEDAL AWARD in the Los Angeles Olive Oil Competition (Liokareas Flavored (category)  Leek, Cold Fused, Kalamata).  Initially this product required over 14 TONS of fresh Leek in a meticulous process, challenging to fuse.  The end result yielded an amazing green, beautiful olive oil. The process of using fresh cut LEEK cold fused with early green Koroneiki olives is really the only way to preserve the full flavor of both the LEEK and the Koroneiki.  This, is and the high concentration of Leek is why the product is so robust, flavorful and aromatic- a sweet oniony flavor with rich and savory garlic notes.      The process of harvesting Leek and olives together and then pressing them the same day, allowed the full flavor to be achieved.  By picking the Leeks every day, and then fusing them with the olives every night, a perfect balance and flavor was achieved.  The leek also does not fuse with the olives as easily as say, lemons.  It requires shorter malaxation times, and a much higher ratio of Leeks to Olives to get the flavor to fuse.      Wonderful with sautéed vegetables, great as a marinade for meat fish and poultry. Vinegar Pairing Recommendations: Traditional 18-Year, Red Apple, Black Mission Fig, Vanilla, Honey Ginger, Jalapeño, Lavender, Lemongrass-Mint, Peach, Oregano, & Sicilian Lemon.
