Our best selling olive oil of all time!


Columela Extra Virgin Olive Oil Classic is produced from a blend of four special olives – arbequina, hojiblanca, picual and the rare ocal


Columela's olives are hand-picked - not tree-shaken, which can bruise the fruit and affect the quality of the oil. Columela applies modern technology to the ancient traditions of olive oil production, using the“sinolea” method of oil extraction which doesn’t press, but rather pierces the olives so just the “flower of the oil” comes out through gravity to produce an intensely flavored and highly aromatic oil.

Year after year, Columela Extra Virgin Olive Oil Classic has consistently taken top honors in tastings by "Cook's Illustrated" magazine.

"A blend of intense Picual and mild Hojiblanca olives, this oil took top honors for its fruity flavor and excellent balance. One taster summed it up: 'Bold olive flavor, slightly fruity, medium-to- heavy texture: This is what I think of when I think EVOO.' Another taster simply wrote, 'Fantastic.'

Chestnut-crusted Walleye with Morel Mushrooms
Morels and walleye are a natural pairing. The white flesh of the walleye is firm, meaty and delicious. Like trout and other species of freshwater fish, it seems to go particularly well with mushrooms.

Traditional preparations for walleye frequently rely on batter coating and deep-frying, which mask the delicate flavor and texture of the fish. How sad!

Instead, the fish is coated with a layer of crushed dried Michigan chestnut chips. Chestnuts, which contain absolutely no fat, create a light, crisp golden-brown crust and add a wonderfully nutty flavor and tender crunch.

These three ingredients, fish, chestnuts & morels, harmonize together to create an uncomplicated dish with flavors that are simple, yet profoundly satisfying.

Morel and Ramp Crostini
This is a simple and delicious appetizer. It calls for a generous ½ cup of ramps. If you want a more mildly flavored dish, cut the ramps back to ¼ cup or so. You may want to experiment until you've found the combination just right for you. This appetizer may be served warm or at room temperature. May also be served as a side dish.

Sautéed Scallops with Chanterelles and Frisee
This dish is remarkably simple to prepare, and it's special enough to serve for company.

With its combination of colors and textures, this unusual salad looks beautiful on the plate and tastes exotically delicious.

Put the sea scallops in the pan and DON'T MOVE THEM. They'll cook all the way through without being turned over or tossed or messed with in any way. Just make sure that the temperature isn't so high that it burns them.

Pepperoni-Mushroom Pasta
Pizza isn't the only thing that benefits from the hot and salty tang of pepperoni. Brought together by a wild mushroom and spinach cream sauce, pasta and pepperoni prove to be perfect partners.

It makes a wonderful, informal meal, and goes together very quickly. This is an excellent way to cook up something "special" on short notice.
