Foodie souvenirs: the Good

Whenever I’m lucky enough to travel, I always bring back some food item. It could be the specialty of the region, something from a local market, or an unusual ingredient that I can’t get at home. For the most part, I like what I bring home and am very happy, as in the case of this 20yr balsamic vinegar from Stresa, Italy.
Aged balsamic vinegar is syrupy, fragrant, and sweet enough to be sipped straight. This bottle is no exception. When I finally cracked it open, after being stashed for 6 years while I waited for the perfect occasion, it was everything I could have hoped for. We paired it with an excellent olive oil and focaccia, and gave our thanks to the Italians for all that is good in the food world!
