Oil & Vinegar
OIL
Just as with fine wine, environment plays a role in the taste of olive oil. Whether produced in coastal Liguria or the Tuscan hills, olive oils can be found with drastically different flavors which depend on the olives' varietal and the climate in which they are cultivated. Sweet, grassy, buttery, herbaceous, and peppery, high-quality olive oils offer a complex mixture of flavors, aromas, and textures. Our olive oils stand out because they come from one tenuta, or estate. Hand selected for their quality and picked straight from the tree, the olives are first cold pressed and shipped to us as soon as they are bottled. We sell you only oil from this season's harvest so you can taste the complex flavors at their freshest and most fragrant. Well-known as a key element in the healthy Mediterranean diet, olive oil is high in polyphenols, which give it its unique flavor profile and cancer fighting antioxidants.

VINEGAR
Not surprisingly, Italy, with its rich wine-making culture, also has a tradition of crafting outstanding and unusual vinegars. “Vinegar”, after all, means “sour wine.” In a cuisine where simple preparations are preferred, the acidity of vinegar enhances the natural flavors of fresh vegetables and legumes. We offer some of the finest Italian vinegars: from Piemonte where the majestic wines become superb multidimensional condiments, and from Emilia-Romagna, where they still produce vinegars to a centuries-old tradition to create one of Italy's gastronomic jewels: balsamic vinegar.
Baked Goods
At Marazita Bros. you will find a range of the finest Artisan breads to perfectly compliment your delicious meats, Cheeses and condiments.
What marks a good artisan bread? Your first clue will be that it isn't perfect. That may sound odd, but a good handmade bread glories in its refusal to be like those tidy, mass-produced loaves on the shelf. Here are some other things to look for:
Generally, crusts will be chewier, darker, slightly reddish and have an almost burnished quality. That's because the breads are baked long enough to get a final burst of a natural chemical activity that brings out the most flavor. The "spit" or ridge of crust that sticks out on the top should be prominent, as high as an inch, and it won't be perfectly even. The bottom of the loaf may have a seam from when it was hand-folded, but it typically won't have the regular imprints of a pan. Inside, textures will be less uniform but more interesting. Holes are not necessarily a flaw; the natural leavening used in many artisan breads typically makes dough more active, causing the gluten in it to stretch and open up holes.
