Thanksgiving is just a few weeks away dawning that time of the year where we take time to reflect and give thanks.

I’m grateful for so many things this year…

My family.

My friends who feel like family.

And, fat.

Yes, you heard that right: FAT.

I don’t know about you, but I look forward to the Thanksgiving meal all year long.

The golden turkey, the delicious stuffing, pies, cakes, all of it!

And you know what makes it all taste so good? FAT.

A few days ago my friend, Dana, recommended that I watch a new Netflix series call Salt Fat Acid Heat about a chef who travels the world experimenting with these most essential elements of cooking.

The first episode was all about Olive Oil – fat.

The fat in our food enhances the flavor and triggers feelings of satisfaction in our brains (there are even scientific studies that prove this — here and here).

Fat makes our food crispy, smooth and creates a pleasing sensation in the mouth by influencing our taste receptors.

And, fat makes all the other flavors of our food taste better too — that’s why I say that ALL FOOD tastes better with a high-quality Extra Virgin Olive Oil drizzled on it.

It’s a double whammy – deliciousness + the healthiest fat around!

So, this holiday season, be sure to reach for your favorite Ruccello Olive Oil for all of your favorite meals – add it to your dishes to create a pleasing, satisfying meal that will enhance the memory of your Thanksgiving experience.

And this year – give the gift of flavor and health by giving Ruccello Olive Oil to your friends and family!  What a better way to let your family and friends know you care!

Ciao for now,
