Balsamic Vinegars

This week i am bringing you the rich, sweet and woody flavors of “Balsamic Vinegars” from Bellindora, located in the heart of California’s San Joaquin wine country.

Bellindora has a wide selection of fruit infused balsamic vinegars from pomegranate , apple, cherry, fig, champagne pear, peach and many more along with olive oil. The fruit is from local farms in California, Washington, and Oregon.

Food Network’s Ina Garten has been quoted on her show Barefoot Contessa as saying that “she loves using olive oil from California its her favorite to use”.
Now as a native of the sunny state i would have to agree with Ina.

So today i am making chicken with a balsamic reduction or glaze served with roasted red onion with honey and pomegranate balsamic glaze. Yes red onions when roasted becomes caramelized and sweet, yet remains on the savory side.

Both dishes very simple to make, and you wont spend all day slaving over the stove.

If you never used balsamic on anything other then a salad, then you are truly missing out on wonderful and rich flavor…..

Balsamic vinegar is just………… Pure Awesomness



About Dish With Clarissa

Clarissa Ellis grew up learning to cook with her mom. In a time where traditional home-cooked food was going out of style, Clarissa learned to love and make those simple 'comfort foods' and family favorites. As she grew - and her mom got busier with long work hours, Clarissa supported her mom by taking over most of the cooking duties around the home. By the time Clarissa started high school - she had absorbed her mother's approach to traditional, homestyle Italian dishes; and thanks to So Cal's great weather year round... a love of cooking on the grill. Fast forward 30 years and Clarissa has never stopped cooking. She continued to explore food, learning more from So Cal's amazing cultural variety, trying things out on her family and her friends... and always learning. Never content to merely cook a good meal, Clarissa developed the habit of talking sharing her ideas with family, friends and coworkers. After a lifetime of learning and experimenting, Clarissa's love affair with traditional Italian cooking, and 'comfort foods' has grown into a robust, creative and cross-cultural approach to cooking that still manages to remain 'accessible' to the rest of us. Now Clarissa brings her experience and her approach online through her blog - giving all of us a chance give ourselves, our friends and our family the benefits of a lifetime of passion and joy in cooking simply great meals.
