I Heart the Bella Nonnas Olive Oil & Vinegar Tasting Bar! My family and friends know I am passionate about great food and wine. Several ingredients are considered staples in my pantry. Olive oil and balsamic vinegar are two that I always have to keep on the shelf! Last year I was fortunate to be the Emcee for the Shreveport Chamber of Commerce Ribbon Cutting for Bella Nonnas on 70th Street. Let’s just say I fell in love with their products that day. I have made several trips back to the store to purchase bottles for myself and as client gifts. I Heart the Bella Nonnas Olive Oil & Vinegar Tasting Bar because of the vast olive oil & balsamic vinegar selection, tons of recipes on their website, and cooking classes for foodies like me!
Walking into Bella Nonnas and seeing the walls lined with huge stainless steel canisters of different olive oils and vinegars is always exciting to me. The store carries a variety of products from all over the world. Olive oil and vinegar is influenced by the terroir and environmental conditions of the growing region, the same as wine. A discerning palate can detect the differences. The store provides samples and knowledgeable associates who are passionate about the products they carry. I learn something new every time I visit. The large selections of different olive oils and vinegars have improved my pantry and unique gifts I give and will do the same for yours!
The Bella Nonna website is well designed with beautiful pictures of their products and full of delicious recipes you should check out. This Sicilian boy loves to eat, and I also love to cook because I find it relaxing. My Mom took me to cooking school when I was thirteen. She told me, “You are not always going to have your Momma to cook for you and you need to know how.” I am glad that she did! I still enjoy looking for new recipes and preparing dinner parties to impress my guests. This resource of recipes has given me lots of great new ideas. The recipes on their website prepare delicious meals that complement their product selection beautifully.
The Bella Nonna cooking classes are a great way to learn new techniques while having fun and meeting new people. If you have never experienced a cooking class before, I encourage you to give it a try! Bella Nonna is providing great quality products and demonstrating how to use the products in a fun and social environment. Check their Facebook Page for upcoming cooking classes to schedule your next fun foodie experience!
Visiting the store is always a treat and purchases inspire a desire to share with family and friends. I Heart the Bella Nonnas Olive Oil & Vinegar Tasting Bar and I know many others in our community who do as well! The immense Olive Oil & Balsamic Vinegar selection, tons of recipes on their website, and cooking classes for avid foodies make the Bella Nonnas Olive Oil & Vinegar Tasting Bar a true asset to our community! Check back in two weeks for my next trip around town to see if your favorite place is featured. Until then, Salute!
