Back to Basics:  Oil and Vinegar

Kari A. Trzinski, Founder & Owner of Green Bay Olive Oil Co.

Friday, April 30 - 1:00 - 2:00 pm

You will find by using these basic items in everyday cooking you can add gourmet flavor without all the time, effort and thought processes for ideas.  Just the enjoyment of bringing the cooking back home.


Green Bay Olive Oil Co. was created in the spirit of recognizing all people are starved for time; time for cooking and serving the ones we love. Unimpressed by grocery store olive oils and oil chains, she found a way to bring all of the flavor and less time to cook, without sacrificing the natural ingredients, health benefits or flavor. Here are a few areas that will be discussed:


  1. Savory & Sweet - a mixture of ready to eat appetizers, bite size desserts and how to use balsamic vinegar in beverages (both spirited and non-spirited)


  1. Spicy - a mixture of southwest items to dip and drizzle both balsamic and olive oil - bite size tacos, cheeses, Mexican truffles, salsa etc.


  1. Baked Goods - a mixture of baked good items to demonstrate how to use in actual baking and using for finishing, dipping and entertaining


  1. Charcuterie Board - items to make a small charcuterie and which include cheeses, sausages, fruits, crackers and a couple of veggies.


Whether you are a Master Chef or an inexperienced cook, Green Bay Olive Oil can cater your every need with flavors.  Come sample items with the flavored oils and balsamic vinegars and learn from Kari at this culinary event.
