Turn your next dinner into a Michelin-level gourmet meal with this garlic-infused oil from Villa Manodori. Created by chef Massimo Bottura, whose restaurant Osteria Francescana in Modena has been ranked the best in the world, this oil showcases his genius with flavor. It’s made by blending extra virgin Italian olive oil with the essential oil of garlic, distilled using a special process that took years to perfect to capture the pungent allium’s flavor in its purest form. Fragrant and rich, this is an amazing finishing oil and a wonderful tool for building layers of flavor as you cook.

In the 16th century, Villa Manodori was a gracious country estate outside Modena in the northern Italian region of Emilia Romagna, the spiritual home of balsamic vinegar. Great feasts of the local game were held here, and the estate’s own aceto balsamico was served as a digestive at the end of each meal. Born and raised in Modena, chef Massimo Bottura has always taken pride in his home’s culinary traditions. Since establishing Osteria Francescana in 1995, he has become a global ambassador for Italian food, spreading his love of northern Italian cuisine worldwide. In restoring Villa Manodori to its noble past, he has expanded his ability to share the flavors of Modena with food lovers everywhere.

With the rich, rounded aroma of garlic and smooth, buttery olive oil, a little of this oil goes a long way, though it’s never overpowering. Use it as a finishing oil over meats, especially roast chicken and lamb. For deliciously complex crostini for parties, add a drizzle of this oil over toasts topped with roasted or sundried tomatoes, pecorino cheese, and fresh basil. It’s a brilliant flavor booster for any of your favorite dishes that feature garlic at center stage, from Caesar salad to a classic pasta aglio e olio.
