BAKED GOODS

Memories of Mom, or Grandma baking cookies, bread, pies, or other yummy treats is probably indelibly stamped into most people’s fondest recollections.

Many of our olive oils, infused vinegars, finishing salts and sugars not only improve the taste of baked goods, but they’re a healthier alternative to many traditional ingredients.

In some cases, recipes may really only be possible with these products.
