2/ Omega Organic Pumpkin Seed Oil
If you’ve ever consumed pumpkin seeds – delightfully cracking into the shell to reveal a sweet emerald-hued seed – to the point that it becomes addictive, then you’ll undoubtedly be equally enamored with its oil. Cold-pressed to ensure that its nutrients remain intact, the deliciously rich oil is high in linoleic acid, an omega-6 fatty acid that is attributed to improved heart health and blood sugar management. In addition, pumpkin seed oil contains high amounts of antioxidants which may help protect against inflammation and chronic disease. Use as a bread dip, or as the base for a simple salad dressing.
3/ Stiff Sip
“The rumors are true; there are more barrels of bourbon than there are people in Kentucky.” This fact, along with a storied legacy, and cult-like following, makes Bourbon a fascinating spirit loved the world over. In his latest book, Bourbon 101, author, chef and instructor at Auguste Escoffier School of Culinary Arts, Albert W. A. Schmid, offers an all-encompassing ‘crash-course’ to the world of bourbon including its history, production, and enduring cultural identity from his first-hand and industry expertise. A comprehensive handbook for bourbon lovers.
4/ A Total Knockout
Better than a jaunt to Morocco, this little jar packs a punch. Combining chili peppers, extra virgin olive oil, Beldi lemons and salt in one, you can easily add it to braised vegetarian beans, roasted vegetables, couscous and tagine, a North African stew. Dig in and you’ll be comforted by the unmistakable taste of warm spices, gentle heat and lemony depth. Moresh Harissa With Lemon Chili Sauce, 7oz, $6.99.
