Fustini’s Oils and Vinegars Offers New Flavors and More
Fustini’s now offers a selection of gourmet ingredients that complement oils and vinegars called Fustini’s Pantry, with offerings like pasta, tapenades, honey and more. Also, the tradition of Fustini’s School of Cooking, started by Chef Andy, is being continued with guest chefs since his passing. Participants learn new and better ways to incorporate oils and vinegars in their cooking. Two new white balsamic vinegars—Jalapeno Lime and Citrus Oregano—are perfect for outdoor grilling and celebrating the bounty of the summer season.
Jim Milligan, founder of Fustini’s, was so intrigued by and enamored with the oil and vinegar stores he saw while traveling in Europe he brought the concept home. After a long career in international business at 3M and Imation Corporation, he created Fustini’s Oils & Vinegars as a playful homage to his Italian inspiration and opened his first tasting room in 2007 in Traverse City.
