Black Garlic

Black Garlic is the hot new commodity on the culinary scene, fermented from whole heads of fresh garlic. You can’t turn on a cooking show without seeing its bizarre, tar black cloves taking center stage. Black garlic has the bulb’s signature pungent flavor, but is much sweeter than raw or even roasted garlic. The fermentation process brings out a nuttiness that is difficult to describe. Cooking with black garlic is fun, but you may even want to taste a little bite of a clove by itself! You’ll be pleasantly surprised by the spectrum of flavor in this black-as-night ingredient.

Black Garlic Tips

  • Blend a clove into any sauce or salad dressing for an earthy flavor note
  • Smear a whole clove on a toasted bun or bread when serving a sandwich
  • Smash into a fresh dip like hummus for more layers to your snacking

Basil Garlic Extra Virgin Olive Oil

We found ourselves drooling over this Basil Garlic Extra Virgin Olive Oil by Sparrow Lane. Sparrow Lane is known for their artisan vinegars, but this infused olive oil is no joke. It’s an unbelievably aromatic finishing oil perfect for Italian dishes, salad dressings, bread dip, or just about anything else!

Basil Garlic Extra Virgin Olive Oil Tips

  • Don’t just use this as a cooking oil; this basil garlic oil shines brightest in fresh, cool dishes like pasta salads or as a vinaigrette
  • Drizzle a few drops on a just-baked pizza crust just before serving
  • Go crazy for Caprese! This oil is the perfect drizzle for the classic basil, mozzarella and tomato dish

Roasted Garlic Sea Salt

Salt is a magnifying glass for other flavors in a dish, and this Roasted Garlic Sea Salt has no qualms about accenting savory tastes! Much like the Basil Garlic Oil from Sparrow Lane, this ingredient is most useful as a finisher. It can be cooked with, but sprinkling on top of a completed dish creates a whole new realm of flavor.

Roasted Garlic Sea Salt Tips

  • Use with freshly ground black pepper on fried eggs to see a whole new world of breakfast possibilities
  • Sprinkle over a resting cut of meat before serving
  • Whisk a pinch into greek yogurt, cottage cheese, or cream cheese to make your dairies stand out

Culinarie Exclusive

Solajo Seasoning Blend

Chef Ellie’s Solajo Seasoning Blend packs a wallop of flavor with a touch of heat. You’ll never look at your old garlic pepper shaker the same after trying our signature version with two types of chiles, smoked black peppercorns, and a richer garlic note than you’d expect from a dry seasoning. A little sprinkle of this will embolden the simplest dish, but it really does its finest work on proteins.

Solajo Seasoning Blend Tips

  • Add a dash to scrambled eggs before cooking for a subtle kick
  • One-Two + a dash of salt are all you need to season tofu, shrimp, chicken, or pork for the grill
  • Don’t toss that stale bread! Dice it up, toss with olive oil and One-Two, and bake at 375°F until browned for delicious homemade croutons

The Toys

This ingenious little Garlic Peeling Tube helps take the struggle out of peeling. Pop a clove in and roll against a counter or cutting board–the papery skin just falls right off. We all have our own kitchen tricks, especially when it comes to tedious tasks like peeling garlic. There’s the classic knife side smash that is quite efficient, but did you know smashing garlic will subtly change the flavor?

It’s not a pet rock, it’s Chef Soap: magic made of stainless steel. Rinse your hands with water and rub this little treasure to rid your skin of lingering smells from particularly aromatic food. Nobody wants to smell like garlic all day! Okay, well, we might

aromatic grating spoon from Culinarie Kit cooking gift boxThis stainless steel spoon is more than meets the eye–it’s an aromatic grater! Use on garlic or ginger to smash and shred them throughout a dish for even flavor distribution. This spoon is dishwasher safe, too!

Subscribers will receive chef soap or the aromatic grating spoon.

As always, every Culinarie Kit is packaged to be as useful as possible–and friendly to the environment! It’s why we pad your ingredients and toys in a reusable and durable cotton flour sack towel. These towels can be hand or machine washed and are great as a baking weight, a substitute for cheesecloth, or just to clean up spills around the kitchen.

Remember, your Culinarie Kit boxes and all packing materials are either 100% recycled or reused from vendor shipments. Please continue the trend and reuse or recycle your boxes!
