Fratelli Carli

Oneglia is the year of a bountiful harvest of olives.  E' on this particular occasion Giovanni Carli, one of six children of typesetter Carlo Carli has the idea of offerering the olive oil produced from the groves of the family, not to local merchants but to nearby families from the nearby Piedmont. Riding his Bianchi Bike part to the houses of the first customers who immediately appreciate the quality of this oil.  His vision and determination are the foundations that have allowed us to Fratelli Carli today. credit
Join me as I tell of these excellent products and the wonderful family company that bring them to us....

I was first introduced to the products of Fratelli Carli through Chefs, whom I shop with and I'm so glad that they did offer these products.  The Extra Virgin Olive Oil is out of this world.  I use it daily and it makes other oils, well let me just say I threw my others away.  I received a gift pack for product review and am at this moment trying more of their great products.  I have a Product Review in the kitchen of Hibiscus House! Please join me today for a history of this wonderful Italian company.
