Don’t you love it when you go to a restaurant, and they serve a beautiful olive oil with herbs to dip your bread in? It’s so simple, yet so good, and it’s healthier than butter. Of course, you can easily do this at home for the pleasure of you and your guests. So what takes this simple preparation of herbs and oil (and we like to add some grinds of smoked chili) to the next level? What makes you feel that you’ve been transported to a cafe in Provence or Tuscany? It’s a bit of old world charm that comes from a hand-crafted olive wood bowl in which to serve it.
And this beautiful bowl can be used for any number of small condiments, nuts, olives, crackers or anything else that you want to show off!
Michel Carré inherited his passion for woodworking from his father, and discovered the natural beauty and durability of olive wood in 1960. Since that time he has worked with designers and artisans to develop a range of olive wood kitchenware. You can see the beauty in the wood grain, and you will want to touch the curves of the grain in each piece. And you will enjoy observing the transformation as each piece ages gracefully with use and tender loving care.
And, of course, cleanup is a snap: Simply wipe away the excess oil, while leaving behind whatever oil is naturally absorbed by the wood, to achieve the double benefits of cleaning and seasoning. You’ll use this frequently in your home, and it makes a great gift!
No need to say more: this is definitely a Cool Tool!
