Setting up your first house or apartment is an exciting time. It’s also a time when you quickly realize how much you don’t know and how smart your parents actually are. You may even—gasp—find yourself asking them for advice almost daily.
Maybe you’re a family member or friend who knows how hard it is to step out into the world on your own for the first time and want to encourage your young professional to eat more than microwaved meat pockets and peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.
Either way, we have a few items that should be a part of setting up the kitchen of anyone who loves to cook, eat, or serve up a good meal.
The best kind of purchase is the one that keeps your kitchen stocked with everything you need AND gives you a discount for all the things in between.
Let’s face it, you’re going to spend $20 a pop on avocado toast. We’re not judging you, but we are saying we could help you do a lot more with a lot less money.
Our Baking Basics set includes our Lemon Zest Olive Oil (500 ml), a spice and salt of your choice, and a really great looking olive wood spoon which will be a conversation piece next time you have people over on the weekend.
If you love to bake, this is a must have on your counter or in your cupboard.
If you’re looking to set yourself up with the foodie basics but want to be versatile and watch your pennies, we suggest the Pasolivo Classics Collection that includes our Classic Olive Oil (500 ml), Blackberry Balsamic Vinegar, Pacific Blue Kosher Sea Salt, and Lemon Pepper Blend Spice.
There is a lot of dishes that can be made from those combinations, so you’ll always have something good to eat.
The Savory Oil Collections is our personal favorite outside of the Press Club Membership. This collection is going to give you four 500 ml bottles of our savory, herb, and EVOO olive oils.
Not only are your meats, potatoes, and salads going to taste amazing, but the bottles are going to be the centerpiece of your counter.
Our Spice and Salt Favorites Collection gives you exactly what it says. You’re going to be able to rub and sprinkle these onto all sorts of things to take your food to the next level.
Purchase this along with the Savory Oil Collection to create a dipping experience at your next party that is out of this world.
It is important to set good habits early, and we can think of no better habits to set than to make delicious, healthy meals from the very start.
